Welcome to my unique repository of divergent sequences of random characters. Here, you may contemplate the endless variations of 26 letters and some special characters.
I often advocate for a straightforward yet effective rule: the shortest solution that delivers the desired result is usually the best. This approach, favoring concise algorithms, not only ensures efficiency but also reduces maintenance cost and bug susceptibility. Intriguingly, this practical principle finds its theoretical counterpart in data compression algorithm, data analysis and machine learning through the Minimum Description Length (MDL) and the Kolmogorov Complexity.
It’s been a while since I last took the time to write here. 2023 has proven to be a particularly interesting year, filled with numerous projects and a wealth of learning opportunities. Throughout the year, I’ve contributed to 38 open-source projects, resulting in 357 merged pull requests. statistics made using oss-contribs
2022 has just started and I’ll take the opportunity to summarize what happened in 2021. I will use different binoculars or point of view, here they are: Open-source: Stuff related to open-source contributions Work: Stuff related to work Random: Stuff related to Nixos This post might be a bit longer than usual, fear not and hang on tight!
PHP 8.0 has been released since half a year now and 8.1 is just around the corner. My day to day version of PHP is 7.4 and I like it. It has very nice features and I really like the performance improvements that were made. However, it’s a week now that I’m working on a project using PHP 8 and I started to use the new features.
I will soon give a talk at AFUP regarding the loophp/collection library that I built. I’ve been asked to make an interview and I had to reply to some questions. This blog post is the english translation of this interview. When we read "Lazy Collection", we think "Doctrine Collection". Could you tell us more why your library loophp/collection is different?
It all started from a book I was reading the Open Source book from Bartosz Milewski’s ‘Category Theory for Programmers’ when I saw something about Prime numbers: A more interesting example is a coalgebra that produces a list of primes. The trick is to use an infinite list as a carrier.
A year ago, I started to write a lazy collection library for PHP. I haven’t written a specific article about it despite the fact that I would have wanted to, mostly by lack of time. Almost a year ago and 318 commits later, I published the release 2.0.0 last week.
It’s been now more than two weeks that I’m teleworking… and I’m fine, really. This blog post will explain how I live this situation and its outcome, according to me. I’ve been begging for teleworking since I started working at European Commission. For some contractual reasons, it is not allowed for contractors.
When I was a student, it was easy to remember when holidays were coming. Now that I’m working since more than a decade, it’s harder to remember and distinguish those period sometimes! That said, I have to say that the pace at work is different and this is how I remember that I should take some days off.
It’s been 2 months now that I left aside my regular work with Drupal 8 and switched back to Atomium development for Drupal 7. I will soon publish another post on all the new stuff that has been made there, but for now, I will focus on a side project I’ve been doing.
