A Web Alchemist ...
I am a french self-educated programmer and webdesigner, spending my time inventing and developing innovative plugins, web applications, mobile applications, games, themes and websites.
After working for years in an agency, then as a freelancer, my current job consists of imagine, make and sell powerful tools for developers and webmasters.
I realize samples, thousands of specimens of different mechanisms, using different languages, plateforms and frameworks, with no other goal than their analysis.
Then, I synthesize the best of different samples for a specific purpose, and achieve a unique tool in its goal and in its use.
Looking at this way of working, I think I can describe my job as a real “Web Alchemy” .
... working in a (code) canyon
My creations are published on the www.codecanyon.net website.
Codecanyon is a scripts marketplace, conducted by Envato company (located at Melbourne). It is a part of an ecosystem composed of several marketplaces, each dedicated to a specific domain.
The community animating this ecosystem is the first creative community on the web, in terms of number of members, and in terms of quality level.
The required level of quality is high, and the conquest of these marketplaces is long and difficult, but it is a very motivating challenge, which allows authors to acquire a lot of skills.
The spirit that emerges from this community is brilliant, and that’s one of the only strong enough marketplaces to allow authors to work full time on their own creations.
A big THANKS to the Envato staff and all talented members of this community.
