Hello

Dear anonymous visitor

My name is Olivier Giulieri (username Evoluteur).

I live in the San Francisco Bay Area with my lovely cat Neige. I work in Tech. I'm French.

I hope you will find this page a more fun and personal way to meet me than my LinkedIn and GitHub profiles.

Code

I like to code (mostly Javascript and CSS, sometimes SQL). I usually build user interfaces for startups.

I am very interested in metadata and model-driven architecture (usually found in code generators, low-code platforms, and data visualization). I experiment with my open-source project Evolutility model-driven UI and backend, as well as other side-projects.

Lately, I'm looking at the network emerging from these projects as they get stars and forks on GitHub.

My favorite quote about programming is "Smart data structures and dumb code works a lot better than the other way around." - Eric S. Raymond in The Cathedral and the Bazaar.

Cooking

I like to cook (and eat), especially desserts. My specialties are crèmes brûlées, pear cream tart, and madeleines.

I sometimes experiment with salty madeleines. Salty madeleines with duck prosciutto are really good, but I still prefer the sweet madeleines with lemon zest and pine nuts.

I'm learning to make cannelés. They are good but it may take a few more trials for the perfect consistency.

Inspiration

I like to look at fractals (where Math becomes visual art) and to think about morphic resonance.

I also like visual art made by humans... and it often contains fractals or the golden number.

Sometimes I try things like carving a book.

My favorite game is the game of Go. I mostly play online. With very few rules, and a lot of possible moves each turn, Go is more of an art than a calculation game.

Graphic Novels

I like to read and collect graphic novels, mostly sci-fi and fantasy, usually in French.

... and sometimes in English.

Movies

I like to watch sci-fi movies and anime but I do not own a TV.

I'm patiently waiting for Dune and Matrix 4.

Of course, I also enjoy French movies.

Meditation

I like to meditate and to make Chakras charms.

I'm (slowly) learning to play the handpan.

Try something fun and different today:
What are your numerology numbers... and how does my friend Sally interpret them?
I'm a

Maybe treat yourself with some of my favorite european graphic novels. You can now find them on Amazon (compiled into single books and translated to English).
