Welcome to my library

Welcome to my library

As I enjoy reading, I’ve decided to open the doors of my library to share with you my feedback on some books I’ve read. But, before you can start looking at my bookshelves, you may need to know a few things.

I read books both in English and in French. And I prefer reading in the language the book was written. So, that’s why you may find here some books in French, but don’t worry, everything will be translated into English, of course.

Also, I’m maybe a bit weird (maniac?), but I like reading books by author, and by chronological order, sometimes. Yeah, I know… But I actually found it useful, especially to follow the evolution of the characters and the writer! We can talk about it later if you want…

Alright, I think we’re good to go, happy reading! Oh, I nearly forgot, you will find my library in the “Books” tab.

The Unresolved Case of the Kindle

I am a bookworm. A real one. I could nearly live on books if paper was tastier. Ok, kidding… But what about the Kindle, is it better than the books? Maybe Sherlock can help me resolve this case: the book or the Kindle? As I mainly read while commuting and a bit at home, I was wondering if the e-readers were for me. If I were a robot, the answer would be pretty straight forward: true (hum, I mean, yes)! Ok, that’s a very binary answer, let me explain it a bit more. If you consider that carrying a thousand … Continue reading The Unresolved Case of the Kindle

Let it Code – Breaking stereotypes about development

To be honest, I intended to publish a post that was ready to go for a while. But when a friend of mine showed me that article (in French), here is an equivalent in English,  I changed my mind. Those articles speak about teaching code to young girls thanks to Disney Princesses and breaking stereotypes about computer science. And that is a subject I hold dear to my heart. I understand that programming sounds intimidating to a lot of people, and especially to girls. That’s why I would like to share my story with you. I am not a feminist or an activist of … Continue reading Let it Code – Breaking stereotypes about development

Please allow me to introduce myself

Hello people, and welcome to my blog! It feels a bit strange to write a “hello” post, I’m not sure I’ve read one, but I think it sounds right to do it, you know, just to be polite. My name is Catherine and I am a geek girl, an iOS and web developer to be more precise. This project has been sitting in my head for years now, and I’m glad it is finally (a)live. At first, as a web developer, I wanted to put there my useful bits and pieces of code, as you can find it on other … Continue reading Please allow me to introduce myself
