Don't blink. Don't even blink. Blink and you're dead. They are fast. Faster than you can believe.
Don't turn your back, don't look away, and DON'T BLINK.

I know many languages, from very low level (some assembly languages, C) to very high level (JavaScript, OCaml). I am a very fast learner, especially when learning new dialects of paradigms I already have a working knowledge of (eg. functional, object-oriented, SQL, actor-based...).

I strongly believe in picking the right tool for the job, although the platform (compiler, VM, runtime...) is often as much important as the language itself.

Lately I've been coding nearly only in JavaScript, on the server as well on the client. I'm an ES6 and React enthusiast.
