Given how passionate I am about Personal Knowledge Management (PKM). I often publish articles on this topic, but I have also launched various initiatives and products, such as:

I also offer coaching sessions for those who want to take the fast lane.

As an author, blogger, knowledge worker, and entrepreneur, I needed solutions to store and organize an enormous amount of information.Over the years, I’ve explored, used, and advocated many tools. I have settled on Obsidian, but the techniques I rely on can be applied to many other tools as well. I’ve spent months refining and perfecting my Personal Knowledge Management (PKM) system, and have spent countless hours tweaking my approach. I’ve published various articles to share some ideas about this. My system combines the Zettelkasten approach, the PARA method, the Johnny decimal system, and other ideas to create a solid basis for my work as an author, blogger, and content creator.I am very involved in the Personal Knowledge Management community, for which I’m building products, communities, and creating content to help newcomers as well as more advanced users get further. I have created the Obsidian Starter Kit, the Personal Knowledge Management Library, the PKM Journal, the PKM sub-reddit, the PKM Slack community, etc.I’ve decided to dedicate more of my time to coaching PKM enthusiasts and share what I’ve learned so far.During the coaching session(s):We will explore the concepts, techniques, and best practices that I rely on daily and recommendI will guide you through what I consider to be a well-structured, scalable and maintainable Personal Knowledge Management systemI will explain my workflows and processes to youI will (try to) answer all the questions you might haveI will remain available after our session if you have questions, need advice, or helpAfter the coaching sessions, I will remain available to answer additional questions.Testimonials”Sébastien thinks everything from first principles, the systems and ideas we discussed are well thought from multiple angles and I’m going to integrate them in my own specific setup”— Adrian Craciun (via mail)

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. I also have a few other passions such as knowledge management, writing, photography, board games, piano, and errr... well too many other things ;-)

I've been working for 18+ 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.

Back in 2019, I wrote a book called "Learn TypeScript by Building Web Applications" about TypeScript, and Web development frameworks (e.g., React, Angular, etc).

I'm then started working on a collection of 12 books called Dev Concepts, which explains a gazillion concepts around software development. I decided to put that project on hold because of the time it required to finish, and preferred focusing on Knowledge Management instead. I will certainly go back to that project later on, as I have a ton of knowledge and insights to share about IT.

I have also created a community for Software Crafters; artisans of code. I have also created another one dedicated to Zen productivity.
