The author

Hi, I'm Nsukami, you're actually browsing my personal website. I fix problems and get things done using free software.

I've been paid for the first time around 2008, to build a software component in Java. I started seriously accepting contract work as a freelance programmer in late 2011. Since then, I have been employed by various companies to work on various projects. I would like to mention that I've never been outside of Africa and I've never written code for a company inside Africa. The following is some of the projects I've worked on:

I was a PyCon speaker during the first ever panafrican PyCon. The PyCon Africa (The 2019 edition)

I do have many years of practical experience, both small and medium sized projects. I've led small teams of developers, as well as provided support to clients. I've worked with both technical and non-technical people. When it comes to building backend web applications I have one or two things to say about relevant things: architecture, security, database, infrastructure, etc...

What I'm looking for:

Ideally I'm looking for some place where I can put my experience to work. Being able to continually take on and learn new things. A real balance between work and life. Places where saying "I don't know" is okay. I've never worked for a company inside Africa and I've never been outside of Africa. So, working remotely should be an option.

I have been working remotely well before the pandemic, I never knew anything else. And unless really not possible, I prefer continuing to do so. Finally, if possible, I really want to work on and to work with free software.

The author again

Born and raised in Gabon, coming from Democratic Republic of Congo, living in Dakar Senegal, and wandering around West Africa, I work as a freelance.

The reason for this space

This space will be an attempt to share, what in my humble opinion, could be interesting – whatever I am thinking about or working on. Hopefully, somebody will find these posts helpful. At least, it will be a way for me to keep notes, to have something to refer to later. It will also be a way for me to open the conversation, and to learn from you. As long as they're on topic, emails are welcome.

The tools

Browsing this page would not be possible without free/open source software, and some great services.

The shoulders of giants I'm standing on

My servers, my laptop, the software components I develop, everything is written/done/configured using free software. That is possible because of the hard work of thousands of free software developers around the world.

I am convinced, a simple thank you goes a long way. I would like to take one moment, to send gigantic hugs to all of the authors, maintainers, and all the actors contributing to free software all over the universe.

Special thanks and hugs sent to all the contributors of:

You made my life better. Thank you very much.

Let's talk
