WEBOPS // IT MANAGER // PM

Make it Solid Secure Agile

About Me

Hi, let me introduce myself, my name is Séb and i like to discover new things and use all the new technologies availables on the web. Passionate by this world, i’m currently working at Groupe Pichet, one fo the greatest real estate French company in the heart Bordeaux as an IT & Delivry Manager.

In this place, i will expose all my personal works done since many year. I want to share my experience with anyone interested in.

Obviously, most of this projects fit to a certain tech age. All of them has teached me a lot of things and was a good experience but they, off course, doesn’t reflect my actual skills.

Agility

Since i have beginning my first projects, the way i have lead and answer my clients needs have changed. Agility is more than a project management philosophy, for me, it’s making sense that your initial purpose could change and a functionnal brief can evolve. Even if you start creating a project in V cycle, small iterrations with a perputal review by the customer is a only way to drive succesfully your goals.

Scrum, Kanban, Sprint, Backlog, Functional and technical brief are just tools like a swiss knife for a good project manager adapting his method according to his environment.

To be both the listen of your project’s team and your client’s expectations is an interesting exercise. I see my work like a bridge creator between the operational and the profession in the same objectif; to make an original idea to be ready for the “Time to market”

Ops

The devOps culture is not a method, it is much more a philosophy. Time consuming applications to build and deploy reduce the cycle of new features . A continuious delivery with code coverage, scalable environnements on an open environment can make the difference against the market.

My vision is that a devOps is not and old system administrator knowing how to deploy an application in a cloud computing platform. It is more an engineer able to optimize continualy the applicative bricks and find always new way to deliver the service much faster and secure.

At the moment, i’m interested by a lot of tools including Gitlab CI, Docker, ELK Stack, Ansible, Capistrano, Chef, Sentry, Grafana, Prometheus …
