Hello,

Me

My name is Olivier Giulieri (username Evoluteur). I'm French, in my late 40s. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area with my lovely cat Neige.

Code

I like to code (mostly Javascript and CSS, sometimes SQL). I usually build user interfaces for startups. I also play with open source projects and I occasionally post about it.

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.

I really enjoy metadata, so I am very interested in model-driven architecture, low-code platforms, and data visualization. I experiment with my own project Evolutility CRUD framework since 2002.

Cooking

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

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

Inspiration

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

I also like visual art made by humans.

By the way, some of these paintings use fractals.

Graphic Novels

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

... and sometimes in English.

If you are into comics, or curious about European graphic novels, several great ones are now compiled into single books and translated to English.

Movies

I like to watch sci-fi movies.

Meditation

I like to meditate and to make chakras charms.

You could design your own chakras charm too.
