Speaker at Droidcon Berlin 2015

I am excited to announce I will speak at Droidcon this Friday June 5 2015. My talk is here

The initial title “Android Fuckup and postmortem” was accepted in the Call of Paper . But to be politically correct I renamed “Failures and Retrospectives” without changing the meaning.


Conference Android

Vendredi, je me suis rendu a la conférence GET en soirée pensant rencontré des passionnés.

J’ai suivi avec 2 personnes de Google dont un commercial basé a Paris. Le 2eme de Mountain View me demande en me voyant avec un HTC Hero, ‘what’s your twitter client ?’
– the default one, I love the hero because the HTC Sense really bring something on top of it.
On a eu la chance d’avoir entre nos mains des portables : Motorola Droid, HTC Tattoo … bien sur il fallait les rendre a la fin.
Pas de tutoriaux, aucune presentation techniques neanmoins j’ai pu me faire 2 contacts qui ont publié leur appli sur Android.

Back from KingsOfCode

It’s one week old since I’ve been to Amsterdam for KingsOfCode.  I had one contact (never met in person) on my LinkedIn who organized a side-event. In less than 5 days I planned my trip from Paris to Amsterdam. And I so enjoy it, I  talked with passionnate people. With smaller conference, I can feel mor human atmosphere where you can to talk to speakers directly.

Here are some  pics. Mike Malone (Pownce) and Andy Smith (Jaiku) both were doing a presentation on Django framework.

  • – About micro-blogging . What makes Twitter so popular ?
  • – If you find that one, please let us know . Mike
  • – That’s not because it’s built on top of Ruby on Rails 🙂
  • – I don’t think people care what’s build n top. Andy


I also chatted with Francisco Tolmasky, former Apple employee.

  • – What kind of profile does Steve Jobs has ? Is he a UI designer, software architect, marketing guy …
  • – Well he’s the guy who chooses what features to add or remove from the ideas . Without Jobs , Apple wouldn’t be what it is today.
