Archipel des Sept-Îles

The sea was very calm that morning, the sky foggy and the rising Sun's light a pale pinkish haze.

So... I'm a giant squid. An eight armed creature. Oh the irony. :-D

iLimb Ultra Revolution

You probably know, as my profile picture hints, that I have no left hand. This is not due to an accident or drugs or anything, I was just born like that.
This last two weeks, I have had the chance to try a state of the Art prosthetic hand, an iLimb Ultra Revolution. It's an amazing piece of technology. The myoelectric hand I sport on my profile picture, an Ottobock Speed Sensor, has changed my life for the last three years. But Touch Bionics' hand is way above what my old 20 years old designed hand can do. All 5 digits have their own motor (the thumb has two), I can use 24 pre-defined grip patterns and customise 12 more. I can define favorites which I can access using bluetooth chips that I can stick next to my keyboard, my mug, my car keys,... It's not yet a real hand, but this is getting closer and closer.
In a bit more than a week I'll have to hand the hand back (yep, very bad pun, but not everyone can do it, so I did it) until the therapists and doctors following me manage to convince the french social security regulators of the benefit of this bionic hand and be authorised to prescribe me one.
Here is a little video, very badly filmed and edited, displaying a few things I've been doing with +Touch Bionics's iLimb Ultra Revolution only two weeks after having been fitted.

Coding with a hangover is a bad idea. But coding while being drunk can be very very funny. (And you can sometimes come out with great implementations)

Pour la soirée Android Wear de +Cyril Mottier Google nous avait offert une belle montre Android Wear.
On a décidé de la faire gagner, mais pas en faisant appel au Dieu du Random cette fois-ci. On vous lance un challenge. Proposez-nous un un projet de dev pour Android Wear et le projet qui aura reçu le plus de suffrages gagnera la montre (et une présntation de son projet en soirée Code d'Armor).

A vous de jouer!

Appel à projets Android Wear !

Vous avez une idée de dev pour Android Wear mais vous n'avez que l'émulateur pour faire vos tests ? Nous avons peut-être la solution...
Soumettez votre idée en solo, ou par équipe. Les propositions de projets seront soumises à un vote et le projet qui remportera le plus de voix gagnera une montre connectée Android Wear ! Après avoir développé votre projet vous devrez le présenter lors d'une soirée Code d'Armor à la fin de l'année.

Attention, un seul projet par équipe et il ne sera pas possible de modifier votre soumission une fois envoyée ! Les soumissions seront closes le 9 Juin et les votes se feront jusqu'au 16 Juin. Ce concours est réservé aux adhérents de Code d'Armor, alors c'est l'occasion de vous inscrire si ce n'est pas déjà fait :)

I love shell commands, but sometimes a little UI you can clic does it better.
 
Screenshots made easier

If you've ever taken a screenshot or a screen video from an Android phone, there's a good chance you've been copying and pasting shell commands. +Morten Just has made a tool that does all this - including bug reports and your own adb scripts - in one single click, even on multiple devices at the same time.

Gradle Changelog Plugin

At #devoxxFR  last year +Cyril Lakech and Hubert Sablonnière did a talk about power-using #git . During their talk they used conventional changelog syntax for their commit logs. I instantly fell in love with this commit convention and started using it on my projects, at work or at home. My git logs where now neatly organised, full of feat:, fix:, refactor: prefixes, ready for a nice understandable changelog.
I'm an Android developper, I use IntelliJ IDEA or Android Studio, so I didn't feel comfortable using the conventional-changelog npm plugin nor the Grunt conventional-changelog tools. I like web dev, but I didn't like adding web related stuff to my nice Android ecosystem.
So I looked for a #Gradle  plugin which could do the same trick. I found one on Github which did the basics, but didn't cut the mustard the way I wanted to cut it. So I forked the project and did my own version.

Feel free to fork it, tune it, do whatever you want with it! Please give me feedback so I can improve it and make it matches as many needs as possible!

Terminapop, work in progress

Next week I'll be fitted on my current arm socket a new myoelectric hand, an amazing iLimb Ultra Revolution [1], the state of the Art in myoelectric hands. My current myoelectric hand, a SensorHand Speed [2] is a hand I was already fitted with 23 years ago. Things have evolved a lot during this time.
Within the coming months, we'll be designing a new socket for my new hand. With the prosthetic team we've decided to have fun and take this sleek carbon fiber arm socket to another level. Being a developper and tinkerer, great fan of Terminator, Cylons esthetics and the Robocop 2014 cyborg design (not fan of the film, mind you, just the design of the suit), I've decided to play a bit with Arduino Trinklets and RGB strips and more DIY galore.

Stay tuned for more Terminapop WIP...

La lumière ne se déplaçant pas uniformément à la même vitesse, les substitieux ne voient la vérité qu'après les autres. Enfin, ça c'est sur Discworld, je ne sais pas ce qu'il se passe ailleurs qu'à l'ombre de Cori Cellesti, n'ayant jamais été voir, de peur de tomber du bord du monde.

Robopop™
Introduction
For a living I'm a Software Engineer at Orange Labs. I work in a research lab focusing mainly on interpersonnal communications where we mix psycho-sociology, design and coding and watch people in small rooms with lots of cameras and microphones.

With a bunch of friends we have created a non-profit organisation aiming to get developers from our region meet around tech-talks. I'm the secretary of the GDG Code d'Armor.

I've committed myself to a weekly early bird wednesday morning photo shot, taking pictures of the coast where I live before going to work.

The rest of the time, I'm Robopop™, cyber-father and husband, half flesh and bones, half carbon fiber and steel.
