To 2017 and beyond

2017-01-01 Last modified on 2021-05-24

It's that time again...

Last year, I added some «interludes» with music I like or something, you'll find the same in this new one.


I wrote some articles on this blog (10 !). I think the most viewed one was the one about TypeScript (I do not have any analytics / tracking stuff on this website so I do not have any proof though).

I did some real things again for sfeir:

And some small contributions in the articles of awesome coworkers:

I had a ticket for dotCSS and dotJS but I fucked up when planning my holidays... So I skipped the conf to stay in Japan. No report for these confs, sorry !

This will not stop in 2017 ^^.


Interlude: A Tribe Called Quest - We The People....


That was a crazy year.

With my buddy Romain Maton, we spoke at:

Our talk was about JavaScript frameworks, communities, hype, and fanboyism. It's in french here.

It was an amazing experience. The talk at the Jug Summer Camp should be available on youtube at some time. I am not sure yet I'll be ready to make another one this year, but who knows :) (edit: I submitted a conf talk to Devoxx France, we'll see...)


Interlude: Aesop Rock - Shrunk


I played a little more with:

  • react (result: I am not a big fan)
  • vuejs (result: it is awesome, it will be big in 2017)

I started using:

  • go (result: I love it !)

For 2017, I'll have to learn some Angular (understand version 2 and later...) and RxJS. Starting soon !


Interlude: Carly Rae Jepsen - Higher


I've been to some events like coding game «coders stike back»

sfeiriens codingame

(That dude with a My Little Pony t-shirt... That is me)

My real serious side project is:

Some small projects are waiting:

  • gitzytout, a tool to help configure multi git repos to push your stuff everywhere
  • jisho, a command line japanese dictionary
  • neupeumeu: a npm client written in go
  • twitter-cleaner: a small tool to help me clean my twitter things

And other things are still in my head. I talked last year about a secret project... I haven't started yet. Stay tuned ! It should be written in Go + VueJS.

Also, I have contributed to open source projects ! True story !

Interlude: NEVERMEN - Mr Mistake

Computers and stuff

I got a Raspberry Pi, I have not opened it yet. I will in 2017 !

I switch to Arch Linux in february 2016, and I love it !

I use i3 and I want to try bspwm.

I am a big fan of jetbrains products, even though I try to spend more time in neovim.

I switched from zsh to fish, you should really try it. Fast and powerful.

I forgot when I closed my account at LastPass, but I am using pass and it is freaking cool.

I have also started a dotfiles repository with some configs.

The only thing I am still missing is configuring mutt.

I also want to find a modern and lightweight browser...


Interlude: deadmau5 - No Problem


Here are some movies I liked:

And those that where below my expectations:

And some I hope to see:

That being said (written): Clerks 2 is still my favourite movie after 10 years, because:

  • it is fun, romantic, geeky
  • the characters are super cool
  • the soundtrack is awesome
  • it includes inter-species erotica


Interlude: Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals: SXSW 2016

Starting ? Pursuing ?

I have soooo much things to do...

  • Write even more !
  • Learn more (ClojureScript ? Erlang ?)
  • I don't have much time to read and I want to read more (or listening to audioboooks).
  • I am working on a Node.JS training session for my company, it'll be out in the next months :)
  • Learning Japanese !
  • Practicing karate: I may try to reach the black belt in Karate this year...



Just another interlude because I don't have extra content for you


Interlude: Run The Jewels - Legend Has It

Happy new year !

As I say every year:

Happy new year to everybody who will have a happy year. For the others, stay strong and let's hope 2018 will be here promptly.


Final: Wormrot - Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Grind
