Welcome to my repository of non-convergent suite of random letters.
Here, you may contemplate the variation of 26 letters and some other weird characters.

These last months were busy.I mean, really busy.First, I have some important personal projects that are ongoing since years now that are about to be concluded.These projects takes less or more 70% of my free time since 2 years.Then, real regular work, it’s taking me also a lot of time.There is Atomium, the European Commission theme which is taking most of the time.And these last days were even more full of “busy-ness”.Let me tell you how I get there… it’s a small story…

A new Drupal 7 base theme

The Drupal 7 theme layer has, and sometimes still is, been a nightmare to understand for me. In my modules, I’ve always tried to avoid this dark corner that are the theme hooks and inspire my code from what I see somewhere else.Until now, it helped me so far pretty well, that’s the beauty of the Open Source.But recently I’ve been given the task to build a new base theme for Drupal 7 and thus, to have a deep understanding on how the theme layer is working.

A small story about git with an inappropriate title.

Lately, I’ve been working with my colleague on a project hosted on Github.We were working on a specific part, which is a component composed of sub components.During the development, the parent branch “master”, where the feature branch “feature/feature-198” is originating from has evolved on its own.

Why a blog?

The story behind all these random characters...

It’s been a while that I wanted to run a blog. I think, the last time I did one, was on Blogspot, and the last post was from late 2009.So yes, it took me some time to decide myself.Maintaining a blog, but for which purpose ?According to me, a blog is a way to share stuff that you like on the Internet, without being forced to use any social network.Now, 8 years after my last post, I think this blog will be a kind of personal Internet log.

Why companies are not ready for Drupal?

It doesn't means that Drupal is not ready for companies ;-)

I have been working for more than five years now, as a consultant in Belgium.I’m sailing from company to company, from building to building, and my clients are mainly large companies with 1500+ people, some others are smaller.Usually hired as a senior developer or project manager, I’m helping those companies to have a successful Drupal experience.
