Clinical Pharmacy AND Programming were, and still are, my life's passion. Children suffering from cancer has been my cause since 1998. I chose to "focus" on Children with Brain Tumors, as it is -till this day- one of the most challenging pediatric malignancies. Throughout my professional career, i learnt a lot of stuff to help me help children with cancer. Working with those under privileged kids also required me to have a deeper knowledge of Pediatric Oncology, Patient Education and cancer supportive care. I got training in different fields -not only- Clinical Pharmacy, but also Fundraising, Clinical Informatics and Web Development !

To make it short I'm an IT trainer specialized in the .Net ecosystem (framework, C#, WPF, Excel addins...).
(I'm available in France and bordering countries, and I only teach in french.)

I like to learn new things, particularly to understand what happens under the hood, and I do my best to share my humble knowledge with others by direct teaching, by posting articles on my blog (pragmateek.com), or by answering questions on forums.
