As developers we enjoy using FLOSS components.
However there are some pitfalls about them, like customized licenses, toxic communities or social network features deceiving and blurring the users.
What are the things to check before choosing a component?
Musk destroyed Twitter by making it worse, but developers and tech communities made this social network insane.
I can't bear anymore these groups of peacocks and morons, and I explain why.
Some details about why and how sign cryptographically our Git commits using GPG key, and how to verify the commits history and the signatures.
For almost 3 years I used daily the Brave web browser and also its solution for loyal ads remuneration based on Basic Attention Tokens.

This year I spoke during a master class at Toulouse III University about discovering, understanding and contributing to free and open source projects. I introduced to students and teachers the three families of licenses, software forges, Git commits, the tools and the remuneration solutions during this talk.
Last year I gave a talk at Devoxx France, Sunny Tech and also Capitole du Libre about open source, libre and ethical licenses with a focus on differences between these three groups of licenses and all the issues ethical licenses bring about software uses.
In 2021 I gave a talk at Devoxx France about i18n of softwares with a focus on Android and iOS apps. This same talk was selected also for Breizhcamp, but this conference was cancelled because of COVID-19 pandemic.
I was at the first edition of DevFest Strasbourg in 2019 with a talk about Kotlin/Native to talk about Kotlin, native compilation and integration of Kotlin code in iOS app.
I powered an Orange open source project and improve it regularly so as to help software forges administrators to manage their repositories. It provides also features to look for details in Git histories, extract some data and audit histories for some touchy projects.
I tried to help people during the COVID-19 crisis, for example by working on technical solutions. Thus I improved a lot the "Vite Ma Dose" iOS app. The app gained a better accessibility, more settings and new features like filters and improved UI.
Project where a do-it-yourself box is connected to sensors or joysticks and linked to mobile native apps, used by impatent patients so as to train theiur muscles. The project provides games and brings fun during hard moments of training. Worked on Android and iOS apps and tools (for configuration as code, legal notices in Swift and Gradle, headers of sources in Swift).
Android app for rooted devices allowing the user to define points to click on its screen so as to automate tasks or to cheat on games. The app has reached an audience between 50,000 and 100,000 downloads, and was hosted on the store. The sources are available on GitHub.
