SnowCamp 2017, it still rocks nuts!


Like the last year, I attended the SnowCamp, but this time, in its version 2.0: SnowCamp 2017. This very nice event whose the principles were already presented in this post is scheduled in Grenoble, in the Alps in France, by a team who is passionated about the computer sciences, the technologies of the Web and programming.

As I have the chance to work with one of them, Miguel Moquillon, I felt really I have to write a feedback about these extremely enriching 3 days, from Wednesday February 8 to Friday February 10! The event even lasted for 4 days for those that were interested to ski for a one full-skying day was planned Saturday in the Chamrousse ressort that overhangs Grenoble.

SnowCamp 2017, ça envoie toujours de la noix !


Comme l'année dernière, j'ai assisté au SnowCamp, mais ce coup-ci, dans sa version 2.0 : SnowCamp 2017.
Cet événement fort sympathique, dont les principes sont déjà bien expliqués dans ce billet, est organisé sur Grenoble, en France, par une équipe de passionnés autour des Sciences, des technologies du Web et du Coding.
Comme j'ai en plus la chance de travailler quotidiennement avec l'un d'entre eux, Miguel Moquillon pour ne pas le nommer (bisous mon coeur), je me devais de faire un petit retour sur ces 3 jours, du mercredi 8 au vendredi 10 février, qui ont été très enrichissants !
Pour certains, cela a même duré 4 jours puisqu'était organisé sur le samedi 11 février, pour les intéréssés, une journée entière consacrée aux descentes des pistes proposées par la station de Chamrousse qui surplombe Grenoble.

Short review of the SnowCamp 2016

Sticker_SnowCamp_2016_-_CommitStrip.png The SnowCamp 2016 has occurred the penultimate week of January (from Wednesday 20 to Saturday 23) in Grenoble, France, and Silverpeas was an important partner to this event. What has done the SnowCamp a particular event is firstly to open his doors not only to the coders but also to the PhD and Computer Scientists in order to facilitate the sharing of knowledge and to set a nearly place for encounters between the universitary world and the software industry, and secondly to plan a day of skiing with the speakers and the attendees. The SnowCamp was divided into three periods, Wednesday was for the University, Thursday and Friday was for the Conferences, and Saturday was for the Unconference, a day of skiing in the near mountains surrounding Grenoble.

Feedback of my use of IntelliJ IDEA

When I began to work for Silverpeas in 2012, I used to use Eclipse as IDE for my everyday work. Some of the staff were working with others IDEs, among them NetBeans and IntelliJ IDEA. Because the life-cycle of the Silverpeas build is based upon Maven, we can choose any IDE that fits our habits and our needs. But one day, in the case of the development of a transverse functionality implying important impacts on the code base, I needed an IDE that provides me strong debugging and refactoring capabilities while maintaining a good pace of productivity. That's why I ended up using IntelliJ IDEA after being arched by some other IDEs. Silverpeas being an Open-Source project covered by the AGPLv3 Free Software license, our team has a free license for the Ultimate Edition of IntelliJ IDEA; without it, I would have probably never given a try to this IDE. Now, after using IntelliJ IDEA for 2 years, with this post, I can give you my own feedback divided into several sections, each of them covering a part of IntelliJ I like.
