I'm Technical Director of XWiki SAS, a company developing XWiki, an open source second generation wiki. My full bio is available on linkedin.

I'm really interested in anything that can make computer development a better "science", i.e. that helps the software engineering discipline. As a consequence, I've been researching and participating in the following areas over the past few years:

  • Development methodologies and especially applying agile methodologies in the field.
  • Tools / frameworks, especially in the domain of Builds, Tests and generally quality control.
  • Making collaboration easy even from a distance.
You can find my old blog posts here.

Book Authoring


I've created the OSSGTP in 2004 (and still alive and kicking today!) which is a group of French open sourcers, gathering to speak about technology and open source. The list of projects we cover is quite varied.


I'm participating to a monthly Podcast called Les Cast Codeurs talking about Java News (in French), along with Emmanuel Bernard (JBoss, Hibernate), Guillaume Laforge (VMWare, Groovy) and Antonio Goncalves (freelance, book author).
