Author of the PL XYZ (name is still to be defined, also I'm extremely late compared to what I was expecting, and there's still a lot of work).

At marathon my time is 5:30, that's far from a world record. I am older, but I plan to train and re-run longer trails (60 km seemed feasible at the time) after I have made public the version 0.0 of the language.

Favourite Techs: Haskell, C++20, Python 3, PostgreSQL, Nix language and NixOs Linux + Gnome, Bash/Zsh/Perl.

I edit my with code with Vim/NeoVim, and a pinch of Emacs.

Love written calligraphy and spoken languages: Fluent English-French-Spanish. Read/Write German and Dutch. Read approximately Italian and Esperanto. I can decipher slowly Portuguese, Romanian, Catalan, Danish, Swedish.

Slowly, without real focus I am building for learning Japanese, Chinese, Korean. Polish and Czech. Russian, Ukrainian. Mongolian (cyrillic alphabet ok, but I only practiced a dozen real Mongolian words, hyper-mega-difficult to pronounce, really). Hebrew and Arabic. Indonesian and Malaysian. I have a surface knowledge of them, mostly due to either the writing system or the linguistics branch family too far from my current knowledge.

And maybe one day: Tibetan, Zulu, Afrikaans, Swahili, would be nice addition. But that starts to be really a lot ;-)

Why I love learning languages so much? I have to check scientifically, but my feeling is that it boost my neuro-plasticity, and the process makes me feel happy: I still remember the first time when looking at a chinese news paper, I could recognize so many signs, I could not understand the sentences, but it was no longer alien-foreign-impossible to understand. It is one of the most peaceful feelings I know.

I have release some music in the past: Discography discogs

I love graphical arts: Pinterest and Instagram
