Hi, I'm Sylvain Abélard

Tomorrow is full of wonders!

My take on the "now page movement" & my general directions. If you have cool projects I might join in!

Ruby, Web, tech community

Focused on the Ruby or dev community:
ParisRB, live video stream & Slack,
RailsGirls Paris & Women on Rails,
plus some we have to try: Book Club, & Architecture Katas.

Le Ruby Nouveau

The FRuby-cast project shipped and became lerubynouveau.fr, a weekly french podcast about Ruby, Rails, the Web and Tech worlds.

Zen Metaphor

Teaching taught me that some basics just need simple analogies to grasp them quickly. That's what zenm4.net did: 18 episodes in French. Currently on hiatus but I still have many ideas for the next ones.

The Codeless Code

I translated many Codeless Code cases in french.
I made a best of here, but you should read them all!
They inspired me, and you can find some of my humble attempts in English & French.


Of course my code projects are on my GitHub: mostly Jekyll-related stuff, collaborative texts and translations.


The most likely projects to come out next are a few boardgames I want to design, or suggest redesigns of games I love.


Reviewing, formatting, publishing as PDF & eBook French HPMOR translation @ FanFiction.net by AdrienH. Now on GitHub for easier reviews & collaboration.

Many more...

I should translate The Sagan Series someday.
