I am Jean Forget, wargamer since 1978, hobbyist programmer in the evenings since the early 1980's (Github even has a trace of my activity in 1983), professional programmer in the daytime since 1985.
I began programming in Perl (as a hobbyist, not a professional) in 1998 and I joined the Paris.PM group when it was created in 1999. I am a member of Les Mongueurs de Perl since its beginning in December 2001.
I started programming in Raku (then Perl 6) in 2018 with a project directly in line with my wargaming inclinations.
