I am Raphaël Lemaitre, and it appears you landed on my website.

It's me!

According to my twitter bio, I am

CTO of @adventori; pragmatic coder; software craftsman; data lover; tech, soccer, golf, food and music enthusiast; proud dad

This sums up well who am I, but I’ll detail a bit more.

I’m a programmer (mainly using JVM languages but not only) living in the Paris area, France. I started working in 2000 and have worked mainly for software vendors. You can look at my LinkedIn profile for more details.

Writing this page, I find that my twitter bio misses something: I love learning. This is one of the main reasons I made this website (with its blog) : I found writing and sharing are the best way to learn. To quote Andrew Hunt in The Pragmatic Programmer: From Journeyman to Master:

An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.
