Le corps humain est si fascinant

C’est génial de voir à quel point le corps humain peut comprendre, et s’adapter. C’est tout simplement fascinant.

Notre corps déclenche un mécanisme quand il sent qu’on l’a trop poussé à bout. Par exemple, lorsqu’on on manque cruellement de sommeil ou qu’on est extrêmement fatigué. Dans ces deux situations, il se met comme en mode veille.

Encore plus intéressant, notre corps est livré avec un système d’envoi de signaux sophistiqué et très efficace. Et c’est hyper intéressant de savoir les détecter et de les prendre en compte.

I love with what I do

In love with what I do

Today, like most days at work, it was a day that went by very quickly. This is possible because I usually work on exciting projects that challenge me. Basically, I’m in love with what I do.

I think that’s a very important factor in our productivity and our fulfillment as human beings.

The future of WordPress

The future of WordPress

I’m writing here a Twitter thread that I’ve made at the end of last year.


I strongly believe that the future of WordPress as a tool to power the web lies in specialization. A high and very precise specialization.

The trend for WordPress themes now, for instance, is multipurpose. We think that’s what users/customers are looking for, but IMO, it is not true. It is what they « think » they are looking for. Rather, there should be a movement for more and more specific themes, oriented towards very specific needs, accompanied by a dedicated support service.

The same is true for platforms based on WordPress. In my opinion, this is where the future of the CMS is.

An event management platform powered by WordPress, or a ticket reservation platform, a call for applications management platform, etc….

And when I say platform, I don’t mean a theme associated with plugins, but really a platform designed for specific needs.

Decisions, not options

Decisions, not options

L’une des philosophies du projet WordPresss est « Decisions, not options ». En gros, cela consiste à limiter au strict minimum le nombre de choix qu’un utilisateur aura à faire en utilisant le logiciel.

C’est une approche plutôt intéressante; et qui a permis jusque ici à WordPress (Core) d’être aussi complet, en ne devenant pas une usine à gaz.

C’est aussi (peut-être) l’une des raisons qui explique l’importance de l’écosystème de plugins autour du CMS.

This is not just a plugin

This is not just a plugin, it symbolizes the hope and enthusiasm of an entire generation summed up in two words sung most famously by Louis Armstrong: Hello, Dolly.

When activated you will randomly see a lyric from Hello, Dolly in the upper right of your admin screen on every page.

Hello, Dolly

Du consentement sur Internet

Du consentement sur Internet

Je suis curieux de savoir à quel point nous (les utilisateurs d’Internet) sommes conscients que nous devons donner notre consentement à certaines choses quand nous naviguons.

À mon avis, pas beaucoup. Et c’est doublement dangereux.

Feeling unsafe

Feeling unsafe

I am increasingly feeling a sensation of insecurity. Whether I’m walking alone on the street, on my way to work, or even when I find myself alone at home.

I don’t have a clear idea of what this is due to. I keep asking myself a lot of questions to which I can’t find answers.

It sounds better in English

I start some of my #DailyNotes posts in French. Then, before publishing, I say to myself: It sounds better in English 😀.

So, I translate and publish it in English. It’s weird, I know. I don’t know the exact reason yet.

I guess, among other things, I feel it’s more « secure » for me to write some things in English rather than in French.

Four things about me

As yesterday, I’m writting here a response I gave to a questionnaire. Today, it’s related to four things about me.


Hi 👋.

I’m Justin. My dream is to create a leading company in the digital business services sector.

I am extremely open to learning and assimilating new things/skills; this is definitely my main talent.

Last track I’ve listened: Keyframe, beats to relax/study.

The skills I would like to acquire in the next few years

The skills I would like to acquire in the next few years. Sometimes I write down here the answers I give in some questionnaires.
This one is from today.


I have been using WordPress in a very professional and daily manner for almost four years now. So this is one of the areas in which I plan to acquire/enhance my skills and experience in the coming years.

Having used WordPress as I did, and having contributed to advancing this CMS, leading releases, etc., I am now very interested in ways in which WordPress can be extended, and used in very specific contexts.

With the revolution that was the arrival of Gutenberg, the scope of WordPress has greatly expanded. So I plan to expand my expertise in combining WordPress with other technologies; such as React or GraphQL, or using WordPress in a serverless context.

One of the ways I have found to achieve these goals is to work on projects that require the use of WordPress in the unusual context; and not only as a website or blog creation tool.

I challenge myself to make it more of a highly adaptable tool.
