32 year old
... or as some fellow DD said, one year ago: "j'ai 1000 ans".
So what happened during last year, the DVCS way:
$> cd "Sylvain Le Gall" $> darcs whatsnew hunk life.txt 0 + Yvain, my son, talks and walks, this is quite amazing to see your + child growing up. My wife is pregnant, release expected in July + ;-) + + I traveled quite a lot this year: Spain, Tunisia, Belgium, + Roscoff and Huelgoat (Brittany) hunk debian.txt 0 + I went to Debconf 9 and attended Debcamp before. I met a lot of + very interesting people there. I spent the Debcamp time to + implement Zack proposal to compute OCaml package dependencies + using dh-ocaml. It WORKS ;-) It was a pleasure to work with Mehdi + Dogguy and Stephane Glondu on this subject. + + The dh-ocaml work allowed me to be the co-author, with Stephane + and Mehdi, of Zack's article on the subject. + My first publication! + + I went to FOSDEM 2010 and helped attend the Debian booth. Quite a + nice experience I was there with my good old Open Brick NG (need + to blog about it one day). + + Found some time to enable the LLVM OCaml bindings in LLVM Debian + package. + + Voted for the first OCaml-aware DPL! (NB: this was not the + reason for my vote) hunk work.txt 0 + I worked on extending a tool that I delivered before. OCaml is + quite a good language when it comes to do maintenance. You can + extend something and have dozens of compiler errors where your + changes propagate. Once every error has been corrected, your + changes are OK. Of course, this requires to use OCaml types, + pattern matching and a bit of unit testing. + + I was delighted when Jun Furuse ask me if he can organize + OCaml Meeting 2010 in Japan. The first OCaml Meeting spin-off. + + OASIS has been growing quite a lot since the year before and got + enough importance. Thus I decided to give a talk about it at CAML + Consortium in December and then at OCaml Meeting 2010. + + I decided to have some English training. I was missing some oral + fluency. + + I organized the OCaml Meeting 2010 in April. It was quite a lot + of work, especially to prepare my own presentation, but the + meeting was a success and probably my best birthday gift with the + OCaml Hacking Day organized just after. $> darcs record -a What is the patch name? "32 year old"
Unfortunately, this release is late. My birthday was on April 16th, but it was OCaml Meeting this day, which was my top level priority at this time.
See you next year!
