Passionate Software Engineer 🎉 An Agile S.O.L.I.D. Clean Coder 🤖 &Code Smells Fighter 🥊

I'm Pierre-Henry. A cool Software Engineer 😊 I created pH7CMS a while ago and also work on some other exciting open source projects.
I love programming and developing new skills with pro-activity, rigorously and methodically.
Passion for writing secure, testable and scalable applications with clean and maintainable code.
High test coverage (TDD/BDD as well!) are very important to me. Enjoy solving problems and fixing (complex) issues/bugs.
Always want to do my best with best practices and Clean Code! Love also the business world, growth hacking, Web Marketing (but not the old-school one!) and Psychology!

Always thirsty to learn and undertake new exciting things and thrilling challenges.
Extremely passionate and motivated in what I'm doing.
I always want to push a lot of energy, determination, focus and knowledge from myself in order to accomplish as best as I can a new project or mission from scratch 🚀
I like productivity such as the 80/20 rule and Parkinson's law in order to do more, faster and always better! 💪

Open-minded, team player and honest, always want to share knowledge and help others.
Want to see some of my open source software/projects I did (with lots of love):

Everyday-learning, coding, eating fruits and doing sport are my fuel to keep myself happy and great. And I can speak for the whole night about programming and IT, for anyone who wishes 😊

🍓Product Owner / Developer / Founder 🍍
2018 / 2020

Lifyzer Healthy Food Solution™ is a social-food mobile app that aims for transparency and opinions between customers. It allows users to share their feedback on food items and rate them.

Thanks to its clever OCR and barcode scanning technologies (using Google Mobile Vision and Firebase), it also instantly gives the health score and useful details about items you regularly eat or purchase.

In order to give the most reliable data available on the different continents, Lifyzer partially uses OpenFoodFacts, Foodrepo.org, and the US FoodData Central (FDC), which are the biggest open-source nutrition databases.

Available on iOS (a native app built with Swift):

As well as on Android (natively coded in Java):
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.lifyzer

The apps use a simple REST API built on top of PHP 7.2 and using MySQL database.

Finally, I’m currently working on a food search engine, based on Algolia 🚀

Lifyzer is 100% transparent with its users. That’s why the project is 100% open source 💪
