Hi there! Thanks for stopping by on my portfolio. My name is Guillaume Bogard, I am a full-stack developer with an appeal for functional programming, living in Lille, northern France.
I have a passion for scalability, concurrent programming, and abstractions. My other activities include writing, mostly about software on my blog, and speaking in meetups and conferences, mostly to exchange on functional programming. I've had the opportunity to host a talk at the Scala.io conference in 2018, and I am a regular Speaker at Linkvalue's events.
My hobbies include going to the movies, riding roller-coasters and learning foreign languages. My native language is French, I am fluent in English, and currently looking to improve my German.
Those are the tools I use as part of my daily workflow.
With emacs, I also discovered a very rich ecosystem of packages, and the joy of being able to configure and program absolutely anything. I came for the language support, I stayed for the added productivity.
On MacOs, I use iTerm 2. On Linux, I typically use Terminator. Either way, installing Oh my ZSH is one of the first things I do.
My business laptop being a Macbook Pro, I spend most of my day in MacOs Mojave. However, I also have Archlinux on my desktop at home. I also have an old W540 Thinkpad on which I also have a Windows / Linux dual-boot.
I'm a bit of a keyboard nerd. I always carry a Vortex Race 3 TKL mechanical keyboard with Cherry Red switches in my bag. Especially given how poor the latest Macbook pro keyboards are.
I've only tested Red and Brown switches so far, but I think Red are my favorite.
