French articles (some under Creative Commons)

This is just a collection of resources I have written over the years...

Similar projects worth following
I have written my first article in 1995 (which later became the subject of my Master's thesis) then started contributing to the french GLMF (GNU/Linux Magazine France) in 1999.

I have lost track of the number of pages that were published but it's "well over 300". I have written more than 60 articles., often more than 10 pages long. I have tried to keep records on my personal web site but you know how organised I am...

This project should supplement or even replace but the primary goal is to advertise the articles that have been released later under the Creative Commons licence, because I believe them to be meaningful and important !

This page serves 2 purposes :

  • share the resources I have created for all those articles (because and are not the most convenient)
  • maintain a somewhat not-too-inaccurate bibliography (since the editor's site often lags and/or misses a thing or two)

I also try to track those articles I asked the editor to publish under CC (and which he forgot).

Some files are available on the web (without the publisher's approval), I provide the links for the sake of completeness.

The publisher maintains its own list at
