The beach in Nice

I've been working with eZ Publish CMS by eZ Systems since 2008 when I joined the Energy Saving Trust. Recently I've moved to work for the Financial Times as a CMS Developer still using eZ Publish.

Every year, eZ Systems is organising a summer and winter conference. The winter conference is more for the developers and the eZ Community, it's the opportunity to get updated on the evolution of eZ Publish and get some trainings and certifications for free. The other great advantage is meeting a bunch of great people from around the world working on this same open source Content Management System.

This year, the eZ Winter Conference is taking place in Nice, a very beautiful city in the south of France just by the sea. Luckily, my hotel room has been upgraded to a seaview one, I had a great sunset sight this morning, although I woke up a bit late :-P

Among other programs of this conference, there is the speed talk where a member of the community gets the opportunity to hold a small talk of few minutes on an eZ Publish subject of his/her choice. I've proposed myself for a talk on my YubiKey extension for eZ Publish.

I'm looking forward to learn more about what eZ Publish is preparing for us.

Time can be used to make money, money cannot be used to buy time. In London, you are wasting time so much because everything is far. I'm spending 3 hours a day in a train and much more because of signal failures, person under a train, trains not moving to even out gaps in the traffic or what ever excuse they have... "So you're screwed!" Want more money but don't have lot of time to make it... Grrrrr But I try to make use of these 3 hours a day commuting from and to work by doing some work such as filtering pre-editing photos, offline coding etc... But it's still not enough but it is also killing your health on the long run. What can you do? That's life. So lets just enjoy what we already have!

I went to the Ukulele Wednesdays this evening, a great bunch of Uke fans meeting up in the basement of the Royal George Pub on Tottenham Court Road. Jamming the evening away with Keira Knightley having few drinks on the table next to us! Hope she liked the jam ;-)

I've made some progress with the version 3 of my Online Lighting Diagram Creator, an online drag-and-drop tool for photographers allowing easy design of lighting diagrams. It took a while, I know, but this is a personal project and I've been pretty busy last year. But the first useable of v3 will be on production pretty soon with some cool features.
