Since May 2005, I’m MySQL Core and MySQL Pro Certified


Since January 2003, I’m a RedHat Certified Engineer, my certificate number is 807303400507160.


Since November 2002, I’m member of The La Louvière Linux User Group. I’m currently the President of this association.
3LUG is present on into the #3LUG channel.

I deeply value the diversity of MySQL developers, users, community and my blog readers. I cannot agree the suffering, oppression, and systemic racism the Black community faces every day. Black lives matter.
