Hi... I’m Michel (French name = a guy :p) and I’ve been working for the Canadian government for over 30 years. I’m currently working in .NET Core with the bulk of my work being on the backend, i.e. web service and database, though I’ve been getting acquainted with the web UIs (Typescript, Javascript, React) written by the “kids” and fixing their optimism (errors CAN happen, guys, you have to expect them rather than have the thing blow up in the user’s face! lol)

Do I like listening to music while coding? Damn right. I’ve had a heavy metal music review web site for nearly 20 years now (not sure it’s OK to post the URL, so I won’t) and whether I’m at work or at home, I’m almost always listening to music. My site’s design and tech (bad PHP coding with a MySQL db) dates back many years and I’m s-l-o-w-l-y rewritting the thing in .NET Core and trying to fix the annoyances I’ve created for myself over the years. Using the same technologies at home and at work benefit both.

I got here this morning while looking at articles on Flipboard and there was a cool little React tutorial from someone unsatisfied with the official React tutorial.

That’s all for now. ;)
