Learning to program is not a simple thing. And computer science is a young science, we lack the back for how to transmit it.

Imagining that learning a language (or languages) can be closer to learning a foreign language, then use free software to learn to program could match the immersion trip.

Back to the first experiment conducted from September to April and presentation of ideas to explore a new training / school of developper that will open soon.

Yannick François
Developer for more than 15 years, convinced by the FreeSoftware since 2001. At first users, then contributor, and more recently formative.

My other pillars are Agility due to these values of respect for the people, and open Web, that advocated by Mozilla, the one who allows all to become better.

I like working to return the more useful computing for our society.
