I'm a Software Developer with 12+ years of experience. I'm actually the technical lead for the Individual Retirement Account (CIR) project at the French Ministry of Finance.

I'm passionate about IT and Open Source so I contribute to Open Source projects (Asciidoctor, JBoss Forge, Struts...) in different ways (coding, speaking...)

I wrote a French book about Apache Maven 3 in 2011 and, as a technical reviewer, I'm actually reviewing a book about Java EE 7 and WildFly 8. I'm speaker at conferences on Java, Web and Cloud technologies like DevNation and DevFest. I blog about all those technologies on his personal website :

Write in AsciiDoc, Publish Everywhere!


By using AsciiDoc, you're already following one of the best practices we recommend. You can write once and publish everywhere!

AsciiDoc takes a lot of the pain out of writing documentation and keeps it DRY. As with any tool, you need to learn the best practices to use it effectively, such as:

  • How to organize your documentation
  • How to make your documentation approachable to contributors
  • How to make your documentation easy to maintain
  • What tools to use to simplify collaboration & maximize reuse

I'll address some of the challenges we've come across writing documentation in AsciiDoc, offer a set of tips and recommendations that have helped us improve our writing flow and provide advice about how to keep presentation from leaking into your content...and why it matters.
