My (re)introduction post

What ?!? I don't write any #introduceyourself post !?! In fact, I've already made this post, but before HIVE (4 years before), and .. it's been awhile... so it's time to write a new introduction ! ## About Me I'm 34 (near 35) years old at this time, I'm call Florent. I'm from France but I've crossed the border to live in Belgium one year ago. ![The latest picture of me](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/bambukah/23vhsZAw5ZkWbRqnmRTfhkWMgZuKGzJWjBuSh6v1F9GTcYQdTUyYYa4fiPuxtkWe154FU.jpg) I'm a freelance Full-stack web/App/Embedded developer. iI learn some basic dev skills at 7 years old and i can't stop... it's a passion from my childhood :) In my young years, I've worked to [Paris Observatory](https://www.observatoiredeparis.psl.eu/?lang=fr), *Pierre & Marie Curie* University (from [Sorbonne Université](https://www.sorbonne-universite.fr/en)). After that, I've became entrepreneur and with 2 friends, I've founded *Decovery* (bought by big press group, L'Express-Roularta, after one year of hard work). I've also create an electronic centralized access system for a chain of clothing stores. Now I work for many small entrepreneurs for new retail store concepts (with French agency [Uditek](https://www.uditek.fr/)), French deluxe Store fitting agency called [RBI](http://www.rbi-agencement.fr/). I also have 2 personnal projects (one of them is HIVE-Related ;) ) Behind this beautiful geeky life, is something more difficult : I have a genetic and orphan disease... ## About my disease I don't want to make you cry, don't worry. I have a rare disease called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (aka EDS), which is very rare. As [Wikipedia](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ehlers%E2%80%93Danlos_syndromes#Kyphoscoliosis_EDS) says : > **Ehlers–Danlos syndromes** (EDS) are a group of [genetic](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genetic_disorders) [connective-tissue disorders](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Connective_tissue_disease).[[1\]](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ehlers–Danlos_syndromes#cite_note-NIHGHR2016-1) Symptoms may include loose [joints](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joint), joint pain, stretchy velvety skin, and abnormal [scar](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scar) formation.[[1\]](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ehlers–Danlos_syndromes#cite_note-NIHGHR2016-1) These can be noticed at birth or in early childhood.[[2\]](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ehlers–Danlos_syndromes#cite_note-Net2012-2) Complications may include [aortic dissection](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aortic_dissection), [joint dislocations](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joint_dislocations), [scoliosis](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scoliosis), [chronic pain](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chronic_pain), or early [osteoarthritis](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osteoarthritis).[[1\]](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ehlers–Danlos_syndromes#cite_note-NIHGHR2016-1)[[3\]](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ehlers–Danlos_syndromes#cite_note-Law2005-3) ![Rainbow DNA from Pixabay - https://pixabay.com/fr/illustrations/adn-science-m%c3%a9dical-arc-en-ciel-2358911/](https://cdn.pixabay.com/photo/2017/05/31/03/04/dna-2358911_960_720.jpg) I have the Kyphoscoliosis type (aka kEDS) which is VERY rare, I'm a hyper-extensible man :D To be serious, I have many symptoms like very thin skin, joint hyper-mobility, Long slender fingers, low bone density, and more... you can find more information abut this type on the [NIH-GARD website](https://rarediseases.info.nih.gov/diseases/2083/kyphoscoliotic-ehlers-danlos-syndrome). I live with it everyday since i was born. Today, it's difficult but not impossible to live with. ## About my projects Anyway, that's why I'm a freelance, i can work despite the disease :) And what a work ! Many great projects for and with many great people, and it's so great for me ! Besides the work for my customers, I have two professional projects, and HIVE is inside one of them :) ### HIVE-Related Some of you know me from my **SuperHive** project but for the others, it's like WordPress but fully HIVE-based, and more easier to use, more powerful, faster, with build-in improvements, and many more things... some people call it "The WordPress Killer". ![SuperHive new logo](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/bambukah/23uEqqBWmWf7Qqb5vTYGg3uMZekfETFL2bR4ak9doB93wJu8TcWhTFnM1ihPJBWQjPXUr.png) It's in Alpha / Beta stage but I already use it on my [personnal blog](https://blog.florent-kosmala.fr/) and it's also already used by [BSChain France](https://bschain.fr/). Of course, SuperHive is Open-source and you can find it on the [GitHub repository](https://github.com/fkosmala/superhive). Stay tuned for many updates :) ### non-HIVE projects Outside HIVE, with my partner KC, we want to make a medical project to help patients with chronic diseases (like mine). This projects is really great and we are at the concept level, but I already start to develop an usable Alpha version :) I will talk about this project here in a near future. Also, i have another projects like an (crypto) mini-display to stay on desk or in your small retail (to show followers, local information, HIVE price, ..). I work on an NFT art gallery (with some improvements) too. I play with laser engrave on wood and metal (I'll try on Denim and bicycle inner tube for a small project) and 3D print (with my Creality Ender 3 Pro) ![My homemade Working desk to make all of these projects](https://images.hive.blog/DQmRGxBwCScWQaFssAsDyHhTjtQPRLA98sMHNDHH6uWu1DD/Web-Setup.jpg) And to finish, I work with a small belgium entrepreneurs team to make easier the entrepreneur work in Belgium (with some events / tools / ..) ## Other things about myself - I have a cat - I like beer, burgers and pizzas - I listen too much music (in plenty different styles) - I don't have the driver licence but I work on it If you have another questions or feedback, leave me a comment. Have a great day and see you soon on HIVE ;)

C'est bien que tu sois revenu, il aurait sûrement été impossible de tomber sur ta première présentation il y a quatre ans, j'explore juste HIVE j'aime de quoi il s'agit et je ne publie que récemment j'essaie de faire de mon mieux dans chacun d'entre eux, j'ai été choqué par votre activité depuis l'âge de sept ans, à cet âge je courais et jouais encore, je viens du Venezuela d'un état du sud appelé Apure, dont la principale caractéristique est la chaleur, l'agriculture et l'élevage pour moi ce que j'aime le le plus c'est lire et étudier, je suis enseignant et avocat, la description que tu fais avec l'université et l'observatoire en plus des autres projets a retenu mon attention. Sûrement qu'ils nous ont croisés ici sur Hive plusieurs fois, bien sûr mettez le traducteur pour comprendre ce que vous disiez, vous êtes le premier français que je lis sur Hive, gardez à l'esprit que je continuerai à lire vos messages. Je ne peux pas ne pas mentionner la partie médicale, mais je comprends que vous êtes persévérant et cherchez le succès dans votre travail, merci de m'avoir écrit, cela m'a aidé à apprendre et m'a encouragé à continuer, sûrement avec le temps je pourrai obtenez autant de publications réussies qui vous seront utiles à ma fille en héritage. # Que hace feliz que te presentaste nuevamente, de seguro tropezar por casualidad con tu primera presentación hace cuatro años hubiera Sido imposible, apenas estoy explorando HIVE me gusta lo que representa y solo llevo poco haciendo publicaciones, trato de dar lo mejor de mi en cada una de ellas, me llamo la atención lo activo que fuiste desde los siete años, yo a esa edad aún corría y jugaba, yo soy de Venezuela de un estado al sur de nombre apure, característica principal el calor, la agricultura y ganadería a mí me gusta más es leer y estudiar, soy maestra y abogada, me llamo la atención la descripción que haces de la universidad y el observatorio además de los otros proyectos. Seguro nos tropezaron en muchos momentos aquí en hive por supuesto coloque el traductor para entender lo que decías, eres el primer francés que leo en Hive, cuenta que seguiré leyendo tus publicaciones. No puedo dejar de mencionar la parte médica, pero entiendo que eres persistente y buscas cosechar éxitos en tu trabajo, gracias por escribir, me sirvió para aprender y para animarme a seguir haciéndolo de seguro con el tiempo podré obtener tantas publicaciones con éxito que le servirán a mi hija como un legado.
