Internship Finished

That's it, my internship is over since last Friday.

Almost one year by Fluidesign to program, develop, integrate, learn.

I really progressed in JavaScript and Ajax Ajax with jQuery that I can't leave anymore. I also learnt many about HTML/CSS integration, thanks to PJ to whom I always asked his mind.

Anyway, it was one year of happiness with fabulous people. The last weeks looked like holidays for everybody (too bad, they're going to work on Monday...).

To not forget all the website I worked in, here is an alphabetical listing of them with a tweak description of what I've done.

You could think it's not a lot for one year. But as I said, It's Hospilaty took me a lot of time because it's really huge.

One more time, I'd like to thanks all the Fluidesign team who was really great during all my internship.

Now I still have 3 weeks in USA. A friend is coming on Monday and we'll travel for a roadtrip which will unforgettable. (Yes you probably got it, you'll probably have more posts with a lot of text and photos...)

Stage terminé

Voilà, mon stage s'est terminé vendredi dernier.

Presqu'un an au total passé chez Fluidesign à programmer, développer, intégrer, apprendre.

J'ai beaucoup progresser en JavaScript et Ajax avec jQuery que je ne peux plus quitter. J'ai aussi beaucoup appris en intégration HTML/CSS grâce à PJ à qui je demandais toujours son avis.

Bref, un an de bonheur avec des gens fabuleux. Les dernières semaines avait un petit air de vacances pour tout le monde (je plains ceux qui reprennent le boulot lundi).

Pour ne pas oublier tous les sites sur lesquels j'ai travaillé, je vais les lister ici (par ordre alphabétique) avec une description de ce que j'ai fait dessus.

Alors oui, on peut se dire que ce n'est pas beaucoup pour un an de travail. Mais comme je l'ai dit, It's Hospilaty m'a pris énormément de temps car il est absolument immense.

Encore une fois, je profite de ce message pour remercier toute l'équipe de Fluidesign qui a été plus que géniale durant mon stage.

Maintenant, il me reste 3 semaines aux USA. Un ami arrive lundi et à nous l'aventure, pour un roadtrip qui s'annonce inoubliable. (oui, vous l'aurez compris, vous aurez surement encore des postes avec plein de textes et plein de photos...)

Chips, Twix and Mix

It was long time since I didn't make a post like this one. And it's also the first one in English. Basically, I just put some info and links without any orders. So it's possible that some of theme are old...

  • Android grows up pretty well. We can except the first real phone soon
  • Facebook Connect will allow to add a social dimension to your website
  • Firefox came out in version 3 RC1. The RC2 should come soon. If everything goes good, the finale version should come by the end of June
  • Google changed his favicon. Do you like it? I do
  • jQuery released 3 minor versions in a few time (1.2.6 at this time). They're working in the version 2 which is coming soon; a new version of the website will be done, a new logo and maybe the first final release of jQuery UI
  • TinyMCE did the same, to fix many bugs. Right now it's the version 3.0.8

And some personal news, no reasons:

  • The Lakers won yesterday the West Conference, it's official. First of the season, First of the playoffs, and the MVP for Kobe Bryant. They only have to win against the Celtics from Boston and they'll get everything this year

If somebody has some good URLs or infos about the installation or configuration of Postfix, SpamAssassin, ClamAV or anything else which could be useful, don't hesitate to write a comment! I'll take a debian to play as I want with it

Cela fait un petit moment que je n'ai pas écrit un billet du genre. Il est donc possible que certains de ces infos soient un peu vieilles...

  • Android évolue toujours mieux. On peut espérer le 1er vrai téléphone bientôt
  • Facebook Connect permettra d'ajouter une dimension sociale à vos sites
  • Firefox a sorti en version 3 RC1. La RC2 ne devrait pas tardé, et si tout se passe bien, la version finale devrait sortir fin juin.
  • Google a changé sa favicon. Vous trouvez comment ? Moi j'aime bien.
  • jQuery a sorti 3 version mineures en peu de temps (1.2.6 à l'heure actuelle). Mon petit doigt me dit qu'il travaille sur la version 2 qui sortira bientôt, en même temps qu'une nouvelle version du site, d'un nouveau logo et de la 1ère version final de jQuery UI
  • TinyMCE en a fait de même, pour fixer des bugs. Version 3.0.8 actuellement

Et puis un peu de news perso aussi, il n'y a pas de raisons :

  • Les Lakers ont remporté hier la conférence West, c'est officiel. 1er de la saison, 1er des playoffs, et le MVP pour Kobe Bryant. Plus qu'à gagner contre les Celtics de Boston et ils auront tout eu cette année.
  • Mon stage chez Fluidesign se termine dans un peu plus d'un mois. Ensuite j'ai encore 3 semaines ici à faire le touriste. Si une envie de Cali vous prend (et qu'on se connait, c'est un minimum), des options sont possible ;)
  • NyroModal a été télécharger plus de 2 000 fois, la page du projet vue par plus de 20 000 visiteurs uniques ! Un billet sur le sujet est en préparation
  • Suite à des problèmes sur le serveur d'Amenothès, j'ai décider de me prendre un petit serveur dédié à mon retour en France. Si quelqu'un a des bonnes adresse ou des infos sur l'installation et la configuration de Postfix, SpamAssassin, ClamAV ou quoique ce soit qui me sera utile, n'hésitez pas ! Je vais prendre une debian vierge histoire de m'amuser comme je veux.

RoadTrip Report 4/4 : 05/06 - Bryce Canyon, Zion, and Las Vegas

As my brother came with a friend for a 2 weeks road trip around California and neighborhood states, I traveled with them for 4 days. 4 days to run on sunny roads, between deserts and mountains. 4 days, 4 posts.

Last day on the roads for me. Wake up smoothly at 8am to go soflty in Bryce Canyon Park and stop at many points of view. We're going to the last points, the higher which is far away. I didn't think the park was too big. In the road we're seeing many Mules deer. Once we're at the last point, we're eat breakfast with a gorgeous view. It's a little bit cold; we're at almost 8'000 feet. Then we're going back in the way by stopping in other points. We saw again some squirrels. There isn't too much to tell here. It's a beautiful park and all the points of view are different; each one offers a new view and a new particularity.

What a view! The vivid orange colors or gold form the Hoodoos -the verticals rocks- and the sun which enlightens everything in a magnificent contrast: orange from hoodoos, gold from rocks, green from trees, blue from the sky. I loved it. Amazed. I shoot many and many photos. As we planned last day, we're goind to the Sunset point to hike for 1 hour inside the canyon to see it in another way.

The way we're using is very abrupt, and go down in hair-pin curve in the gorge which going more and more narrow. The more we're goind down, the cooler. It's pleasant. It's weird to see some bigs trees are here in the middle of the gorge. Then we're leaving the gorge to arrive in larger place above trees and hoodos. The way going down slowly now. Once we're arrive at the bottom, we're using an other way to come back which is less abrupt. Here are the photos from the "l'expédition" inside the canyon:

It's almost 10 when we're finishing the walk. It's time for us to say goodbye to Bryce Canyon to reach Zion Park. After 2 hours of road, we're in. One more time it's a decor change. Here the greenery and coolness of the park are soothing. The park is a large gorge with a small river in its middle with a huge biodiversity around. the place is nice. Sadly We can't spent more than 2 hours here.

We arrived in the park by the top which is less green and cute. The more we're going down, the more desert atmosphere disappears to let place to the dense forest. As the interior of the park is closed for personal vehicles, some free buses could drive you from bottom to top to stop at points where you can start to walk or enjoy the canyon. We walked only 10 minutes to reach a small cascade. Then we took again the bus to go to the last point and eat our sandwiches aside the river around 1pm. On the big cliff which partitions the park some sportsman climbs in the middle of huge part very smooth. After some walking minutes we have to go back to be sure I can get my plain in time in Las Vegas this evening.

We're back in the parking. I prepare quickly my bag for the plane. Let's go to Las Vegas to take my flight.

I saw only the building and some casino exterior eccentricity in Las Vegas on the Strip. I didn't have time to gamble -maybe it's better. Las Vegas is really lost in the middle of the desert; there is absolutely nothing around the city. Photos took from the car:

At Las Vegas Trump Tower in Las Vegas Palazzo in Las Vegas Bellagio in Las Vegas Eiffel Tower in Las Vegas Arc de Triomphe in Las Vegas Paris in Las Vegas Casino in Las Vegas At Las Vegas At Las Vegas Statue of the Liberty in Las Vegas Pyramid in Las Vegas

After this short pass aside the casino, time for me to go to the airport. My SouthWest flight take off in time and I'm back at Los Angeles. Damien and François continue the road trip to San Francisco by stopping in more other parks. They will come back in LA one week later.

I keep many memories in my head. I'll probably make a new roadtrip in July to go to the park I couldn't go this time. and maybe come back in San Francisco without rain...

Previous day
