First English post

I have finally decided to write in English instead of French. Among other motives is the fact that I am soon going to the USA for a 6 month internship. I will leave in February for Centreville (just south of Washington DC) to work on a Service Oriented Architecture. I can’t wait, both to work on a SOA and to live in the USA.

You may have also noticed that I haven’t written any post since quite a long time. I hope I will be able to post more often in the future.

I haven’t had (neither did I took it) to write post because I have been involved in time consuming projects lately.
  • An Instant Messaging Protocol and a .net client for this protocol. This protocol offers some interesting (well, at least, so I Hope) features. It’s a server less protocol with automatic discovery of chat partners on the LAN. It also (we are on working on it) implement security features (symmetric and asymmetric encryption with AES and RSA). A java client is also being developed by a friend mine. This project is open-source. A .net library is available for those who want to create quickly a new client without worrying for network programming. No file release has yet been made ( I plan to do one in a few days) but you can check the protocol definition and the source code at : http://sourceforge.net/projects/chat4lann/
  • I am working on a new website to host this blog. The blog you are currently reading is hosted by blogger.com, the design blogger’s as well. My new website will host two blog (personal and professional) along with a place to publish my articles. I am currently working on the look of this website, and then I will work on the database. I plan to buy a domain name for this website but I am still looking for a good DN. What about joesspot.com ?
