From Montpellier to San Francisco

Pilot : a front-end developer in America

Objective California : San Francisco

In the land of the burgers’ eaters, time plays tricks on me. One day, I’m dreaming. The next, my dream’s becoming reality.

Fascinated since my childhood by the USA, more particularly the big cities, I am finally able to realize my project and to embark, for months, towards the work destination of my dreams. San Francisco, here I am !

Hello San Francisco

I arrived in San Francisco at the beginning of the evening. By the way, I haven’t landed in an unknown place because I’ve already travelled in California in 2013. But it’s always a surprise to see the jungle of skyscraper, the crowded streets.

Montpellier - San Francisco

I’m a french guy and I come from Montpellier, a small city compared to Sacramento, even if it’s a state capital.

Montpellier is a city in southern France. It is the capital of the Languedoc-Roussillon region, as well as the Hérault department. Montpellier is the 8th largest city of France, and is also the fastest growing city in the country over the past 25 years. Nearly one third of the population is students from 3 universities and 3 higher education institutions that are outside the university framework in the city. Located on the south coast of France on the Mediterranean Sea, it is the third-largest French city on the Mediterranean coast after Marseille and Nice.


Web development project

Why am I here in California ?

I’ve decided to come here in the United States to follow my dreams and also to work in the web development domain. As you can see in my bio page, I am a front-end developer specialized in the JavaScript language.


I have many objectives in my career in San Francisco.

  • To improve my English,
  • to become a full-part member of a JavaScript community,
  • to discover another culture and enjoy life

I really aim to focus on teaching in the future, to share knowledge about development or about different domains.

JavaScript community

As I said before, I am a front-end developer, even a JavaScript full stack developer. You can discover my projects on my Github page.

I hate enumerate all the frameworks or library I’ve used or I excelled in but I can say that I’m able to develop the back-end and also the front-end part of a website or web application.

I’ve chosen to focus to meteor because I like the isomorphic principle. I often develop with node.js as a back-end and Angular as a front-end framework. I also love to create small prototypes in a few days with so many possibilities.

I love to integrate the fact that all developers should learn concepts, not languages.
