My name is Emmanuel Frank Ngankam Padjinou, borned and raised in Cameroon, a french and english speaking country in the center of Africa.
I do enjoy a couple of topics :
I have been coding in many programming languages using different technologies. I do consider myself to be the strongest at java programming but don't have any particular preference for a particular framework . I believe it is important to be agile enough to adapt and embrace new technologies given that they do solve your issue in an optimum manner.
My passion for programming mainly comes from the joy of conceptualizing, designing and implementing things from scratch. There is not that many things providing me with the same feeling.
I did find out about the open source community as I was getting deeper into java which is together with python the pioneer of open source coding. I have been using Linux both professionally and personally.
Currently running only Linux computers home, I don't imagine myself getting back to windows / mac os . I believe they are both fairly competent systems, they just miss the freedom that I am running after and which makes the appeal of Linux for me. I am also a lot more efficient working with Linux being able to automatize things and navigating faster thanks to tile window managers.
One can not speak about the Linux without mentioning the plethora of server and tools available to the mass through utilities like docker, snap, flatpak, appImage.
We all need something to stress off and mine is dancing. It prevents my brain to think as I am extremely pensive as a person and often in my thoughts. Dancing allows me to let it go and shutdown for a couple of hours, very glad I did find out about it.
I have an interest for a pair dance from Africa, more specifically Angola called Kizomba.
I am still experimenting with it, I like to consume information in form of video. I do believe it is easier for me to recall things that way as I can see stuffs while they are being done, That is where the interest for recording videos where I do discuss a variety of topics came to my mind.
I am still trying to find my way in this youtuber world, don't believe I am great at it but it is a pretty enjoyable side activity when the pressure is off from anything else.
