You pay one person but get the work and quality of a team.
You'll always get the best of what's possible today.
I'm carefully listening to my clients' needs, until satisfaction.
I started programming at age 14. Two years later, I wrote my first interpreter for an invented programming language and I had written a dozen lessons for the website OpenClassrooms (like this one, or this one). I spent most of my free time focusing on what had become a vocation.
Soon after, I moved towards computer science studies and ended my learning path with a professional degree called designer / developer for decentralized architecture (Internet is a decentralized architecture, for instance).
I then worked as a design and research engineer for a research laboratory, which has become a regular customer now that I'm self-employed.
