I am the Technical Leader of core business applications at Université catholique de Louvain. I’m daily busy with enterprise software issues, coordinating a team of developers to deliver solutions that last longer and are easy to evolve. Previously, I was a Java Architect in the same institution and also at the European Commission.

I have an extensive background on Java Technologies, with more than 10 years of experience, developing desktop and web applications for a variety of businesses. However, I recently received a wakeup call from the functional paradigm urging me to rethink my concepts and reshape my brain to work more in a functional way. I’ve realised that technologies such as Enterprise Java Beans (EJB 3), Java Persistence API (JPA2), Java Server Faces (JSF2) and others were pushing me back on the way of designing good software architectures. Now, I’m heavily practicing Elixir, Clojure and Python to widely open my programming and architectural mindset.
