After several years of experience in computer science, I had the opportunity to acquire solid bases in multiple fields including the web. This field is vast and evolving day by day, so it will allow me to learn constantly and never get bored. I chose this specialization because in the working world if there is one thing important, it is to love what you do.
My passions are also related to computer science, from devouring TV shows to video games and following the e-sport scene and new technologies.

Part 2 : Adding Flavour

At the moment we only have the business-class-model part, we need to add the relation with our datas. To do so, we will create our “resource models”.
