In 1996, I moved to Nantes (France) to join Object Technology International (OTI) as the Assistant of their Lab Director and as Consultant to support OTI customers in Europe. The same year IBM acquired OTI. At this time I was a Smalltalk passionate project lead.
In 1998, we moved for 3 years to Raleigh (NC) and the team I worked with smoothly moved from Smalltalk to Java. At this time, I mainly worked in the IBM Embedded Java technology. I had lots of fun creating a markup language, XML dialect, named P3ML used to layout branded graphical user interfaces.
In 2004, I joined the Jazz project as the third member on the Jazz Jumpstart team.
Located close to Toulouse (France) I work with most of the main European IBM customer on Jazz, Rational Team Concert and Rational Workbench for Collaborative Lifecycle Management.
Actually, since the university I had always fun working on SW tools for SW developers: Logo compiler, Smalltalk development environment, Prototyping environments, IDE for Embedded Java applications,…
So it was obvious for me, when I discovered the Jazz project, that I should join this great team and work on this fantastic and challenging project.
