About this website

This site is meant as a central repository for my public lists and documents, which were previously stored on Github, Google Drive, etc. It was also an excuse to start a new programming project, using Scala, Play, Akka, and more.

Most of the content on this site is stored on Github, but some of it also comes from external APIs such as the Blogger API or the Twitter API.

Blog

I have a blog on Blogger since September 2006. It is not completely integrated with this website yet, but I'm working on it.

Here are my latest posts:

What have I done lately?
