Expertise

Software Developer *trying* to make cool stuff

Programming

Whether it is for classic PCs, embedded systems or mobile devices, I'm naturally going towards those languages.

For Fun

Because programming is a passion, here are some cool/fun languages I use to develop side projects.

Web

Being a noob web programmer, I nevertheless have some notions on client and server side web languages.

Platforms

Mainly developing on Apple platforms, I also know how to develop on Android and have some useful knowledge on various Linux platforms

Tools

xcode

Editors and tools depend on preferences and targeted platforms, however I really like Xcode for iOS, Vim for everything and IntelliJ editors for Java and Python.

Hacking

terminal hopper charles

I love to modify/hack stuff and understand how things work whether it is by using Terminal, looking at assembly using Hopper or listening to the network using Charles.

  • System wide notifications events
  • Big variety of notifications

Another tweak that allowed you to receive a notification whenever a specific background event happened while using your phone like an app just installed, or you joined a 4G zone.
