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 ;)
