Il y a un problème de logique dans ton article : tu listes tout un tas de points qui ne sont pas dans Github.

Fine.

Mais aucun de ces points ne se trouvent dans le CV non plus.

Un compte Github n'est pas tout. Mais, dans le cas d'un développeur, il est infiniment plus informatif qu'un CV.

Exemple vécu :
— Tu as un compte Github ?
— Un compte quoi ?

Quand tu cherches un dev web agile et moderne et qu'il n'a jamais entendu parler de Github, cela pose certaines questions.

Why the hell would you ruin your user experience and make people leave your site for a stupid overlay? No one would do that.
Every once in awhile, I land on some marketing blog. Either because I clicked on an appetising link on Twitter or because they prevent Pocket from downloading t...

There, I finished assembling my LEGO plane (set 42025) :)
It's a beautiful set. Lot of cool little details, building is very sturdy, and has a lot of "and now you add that thing here and TADAAA it fits on perfectly with the 42 previous steps". Kind of feel like a really cool math proof where you assemble things one by one and end up with a beautiful thing at the end :) 
I'd really like to see the design process from the "okay, let's make a plane" step to "we have a model that is ready to release", it must be quite fascinating :)

    I'm a bastard operator from hell (BOFH), devops minded, obsessed with solving problems, high availability, scaling, and automation. I love to see everything running without me so I can spend my days watching tennis with an eye on my monitoring tools. Over the years, I've developped mastery in RTFM and strong skills in RTFS. In the past, I've also developed a strong experience in Web development (Ruby on Rails), product design, usability and accessibility. Being a sharp not Swiss knife makes me the perfect guy for your cool, innovative startup... but I doubt you can afford me. If you think I'm too random, I'll probably think you're too boring ©. Specialties:Solving problems. High availiability and automation obsessed. Mastery in RTFM. Strong skills in RTFS.
