Migrating from Pluxml to Grav

8 July 2016

By changing the design of my website, I also chose to change the CMS I was using leaving Pluxml for Grav. Pluxml is a good CMS, but I had some little issues and I preferred to try something else.

New design for my website

30 June 2016

One and a half year after I switched from Wordpress to Pluxml, I changed again my website because I wasn't happy anymore with the global design.

Changing my personal logo

27 May 2016

The logo you see at the top of my website has been made three years ago during a work at school called "personal branding". At this time, I wasn't very familiar with tools like Adobe Illustrator and I wasn't very good at graphical work. I will describe in a later post how I designed my new logo with Inkscape, but I will explain here what are the reasons why I designed it like this.

Impressions about Vue.js by doing a dashboard

30 April 2016

I got to know Vue.js about two months ago and was greatly impressed by the quality of its guide and API. Imagine. There is one guy alone maintaining the framework and he manages to keep an up-to-date documentation. Since then, he has got to search for more people, and the team is increasing in size, but very slowly. So, seduced by the way the documentation is clearly written and easy to understand, I decided to try Vue.js on a teamwork I had to do for a company as part of my studies. I had to develop a dashboard displaying data and charts when clicking on points on a map. Before the dashboard I first had to process 100GB of data to get only the interesting information and to aggregate this information into one simple PostgreSQL database (the final data was no more than 25MB afterwards). This was also an incredible work, but I won't talk about it in this post.

Install Impala ODBC for Cloudera on Arch Linux

25 March 2016

For a project, I had to automate requests to a Impala database hosted on a Cloudera VM and I had to install an OCDB for this, but it wasn't so simple to do. I got problems to configure correctly unixodbc and afterwards to install the driver which is not available on Arch. I detail in this article how I manage the problems and what are the solutions I found. If you are in a hurry, there is a TL;DR at the end.
