👋 Hey, greetings fellow developer!

I'm Nicolas, a web developer living in Montréal, Canada 🍁
I created and organize the Software Crafters Montréal meetups there.

I've been dealing with Legacy codebases in different environments—from government agencies to successful start-ups. I define Legacy Code as profitable code you're afraid to change 🤠

Aside from my daily job, I develop tools to help devs (myself included) deal with that! I also talk and teach about it. I believe it's a combination of tools & techniques that will make YOU more efficient and productive.

👨‍💻 I use VS Code for many things, including presenting talks at conferences. I've coded in different languages, but these past years were mostly JS/TS (usually a mix of those).

🙏 If you use Abracadabra, Slides, or any of my other projects, a monthly contribution would be A HUGE RECOGNITION for me. With your help, I might step out of my daily job and focus on making people more productive with Legacy code.

My main projects are:

Your sponsoring also helps me sustain other initiatives like:

  • My blog understandlegacycode.com
  • Its weekly newsletter, where I share tips & tricks on dealing with Legacy systems
  • Organize Software Crafters meetups
  • Sponsor other maintainers who make MY work easier every day

💖 Thank you, and take care out there!
