About me

Hey! I'm Kevin,

I'm a Developer, Dreamer and Lifelong Learner passionate about design, arts and non-fiction books. I decided to build this blog because I wanted to show my work online, share my creativity and my learning journey.

📍 Currently working at Maisons du Monde, as a Freelance Fullstack Developer with Java & React.

My goal is to master the art of writing clean, maintainable, testable and scalable code with Java and JavaScript. I also decided to learn technical writing because I want other developers around the world to enjoy reading my articles. In the book Show Your Work, I found this quote that resonates with me ↓

Draw the art you want to see, start the business you want to run, play the music you want to hear, write the books you want to read, build the products you want to use – do the work you want to see done.

To be honest, I think that I would never have created this blog if I had never read the trilogy of Austin Kleon books named Show Your work, Keep Going and Steal Like An Artist. Those books motivated me to start writing and sharing my knowledge and thoughts online, so here I am, showing my work online! 😁

  2. ⏰ Daily As a compulsive reader on and offline, on this website I share guides, tutorials, books notes and highlights on things worth remembering. But also my personal experiences and wisdom related to software developers career.

Quick facts

  1. 🤑 Money – I like money, and I'm not afraid to talk about. I also like how the investment system works, everything about stocks, shares and cryptocurrencies. Financial books helped me a lot to understand what money is about and how to play the infinite game.
