Présence à WordCamp Montréal

18 août 2010 | 0 commentaires

Je me suis enregistré pour la conférence WordCamp Montréal dès que c’était possible. Ce sera la première fois que j’assiste à une conférence en tant que consultant indépendant, et non comme employé d’IBM. Tout au long de ma carrière, j’ai toujours porté attention au développement de mes compétences techniques et de mes abilités d’affaire. Je…

L’aventure (re)commence

1 juin 2010 | 0 commentaires

Mon premier emploi après avoir gradué de l’École des Sciences de la Gestion (UQAM) en 1994, je me le suis créé de toute pièces. Fort d’un baccalauréat en Finance, et après avoir fait application sans grande conviction dans quelques firmes de courtage à escompte, j’ai finalement décidé de démarrer mon entreprise de services informatiques. À…

Scuttle or having your very own del.icio.us

22 février 2006 | 0 commentaires

I know I’ve talked about this before, but Scuttle is very quickly becoming an essential part of my computing environment. Just recently, as I switched hosting server, I was having a problem with the Scuttlelicious extension, and couldn’t bookmark stuff. Not fun. The latest version (0.6) now offers: more translations tag clouds caching observable speed…

What’s really cool with the IBM Software stack is that as more and more of our products use industry standards, they can be used in new ways (i.e. not only using pure J2EE programming which can be frightening to the uninitiated). Example is this new IBM developerWorks article entitled Access WebSphere Process Server V6.0 business…

Changing web hosting provider is involving

15 février 2006 | 0 commentaires

I’ve finally (I think) switched over completely from web hosting provider. Wow. Didn’t think there’d be so much to learn in such a short time. In all, I think the site was offline for 2 days or so. During that time (evening and nights, really), I had to master cPanel, Web Host Manager and a…

About IBM, acronyms and going overboard

10 février 2006 | 0 commentaires

Whenever we come out with a new product, I don’t know who decides on naming conventions, but things can get ugly. Well, not as much as what IT Jungle recently wrote on our product (they love the product, they just don’t dig the name) in their IBM Weaves Together HATS and WebFacing Tools article: As…

Your traditional sales call combo

7 février 2006 | 0 commentaires

Yes, I’ve been asked to tag-along on a sales call in the past at IBM. Substitute Dilbert for Jean-Francois, there, you can say you were there (hey, I never lied about the fact I was geek’ier than your average rep – hence the technical sales thing)… To be honest, sellers at IBM, like a lot…

Wow. The VMware team is really firing from all cylinders lately. First a major upgrade to VMware Workstation to allow 64-bit OSes. Then the free VMware Player. Now this: a free VMware Server product, which acts as en entry point to their ESG/GSX product lines. This is just too cool. A comparison of what it…
