Hey there! I'm Sébastien Dubois 👋
I wear many hats: father, husband, author, software crafter, CTO, solution architect, mentor, coach, entrepreneur, indie hacker, bootstrapper, thinker, geek, gamer. I'm also the founder of DeveloPassion, a software development company located in Belgium.
I've been working for 15+ years in the IT industry . Since day one (and actually long before that), I have always been passionate about IT, software development, IT security, code quality, the open Web, and open-source software. I write about knowledge management, software development, entrepreneurship, indie hacking, bootstrapping, management, leadership, and more. Subscribe to my newsletter if you're interested in those subjects.
I grew up when the world was waking up to the World Wide Web. I started playing with computers when I was 8, and never stopped since. I also have a few other passions like photography, board games, piano, and errr... well too many other things ;-) I could tell you more, but you'll have to ask ;-)
Back in 2019, I wrote a book called "Learn TypeScript by Building Web Applications" about TypeScript, a wonderful programming language.
Currently, I'm busy writing a collection of 12 books called Dev Concepts, which explains a gazillion concepts around software development. The goal of that collection is to explain what the software craft is all about, and help those interested on their way to become full-stack developers.
Next to that, I'm working on an app called focusd. It is an infinite outliner with a strong calendar integration. With it, people will be able to take notes, easily introduce time-blocking in their lives (a super useful productivity technique), and focus on what really matters.
Finally, I've had a strong strong interest in personal organization, and Knowledge Management in general and Personal Knowledge Management (PKM) in particular. Throughout 2021, I've spent countless hours researching the PKM space in order to prepare for a startup project, but also to improve my writing and note-taking skills. I've regrouped all the information in a Notion space that you can find here
If you're curious, I wrote a page about the stuff I use.
- and more.. ;-)
