Marc’s Dev Blog

Hello there! 👋

Welcome on Marc’s Dev Blog! My name is Marc-Andre Lavigne. I work as a Web Developer and I’m located in Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada. Family father and Nature Lover, I write about a broader aspect of development. Less code, more philosophical thinking and experience sharing.
