Interview: Nexialys

Nexialys is wellknown around the vBulletin community. He runs http://vbenhancer.com, where he offers some outstanding products/add ons and instructions on how to enhance your vBulletin installation. But, what a lot of people don't realise is that vBulletin isn't the only area that benefits from his coding skills. We caught up with Nexia over the past week and asked him a few questions, which he kindly took the time out to answer. Thanks Nex for an intriguing insight.

Will you share a little background information on the person behind the username - Nexialys?;)

There is not much to say, i'm a working at home father, named Jean-Pierre Michaud, but if you ask in the industry, nobody knows that guy, they know nexialys, nobody else... ;)

actually it's not a username, but a pen name, as everywhere i go, i use it... it's also my branding, as my business is named to it.. :)

i'm not english speaking, i'm french with a babelfish in the head... so most of the english people say i need to learn english before chatting on a forum... personally i think i work my english pretty well compared to all these teen who write english like a chinese cow.... ;)

i've been active on the internet for so long, and for so much projects, it's easier to search for me on google than ask me to list all the things i've been into... i do not remember everything myself... rofl

in the last years i've been involved in vBulletin, but also IPB, phpBB, Wordpress in the late. That's in the code development, but i'm implicated in a lot of sites projects and web management as well... i'm a web-architect after all, more than a coder or a designer, i build plans based on the client needs and we find the best solutions to fit each clients needs, which make me play with a lot of things and usually customizing everything myself.

now i'm half-retired... working for the RedCross again, after more than 15 years of dedication and with this new crisis in Hati, here in Qubec they needed someone who can manage the projects here locally, as we're sending people and goods/medics etc... we're negociating with the governments to bring more people to regroup their families -- half of the diasporas of Hati are in Quebec, and we are the best population that can interact with them right now, as the americans and british are good in militaries but know nothing of the languages and the society... we are a bridge between the population there and the...

You sound like an interesting guy, Nex (I don't care if that's not your real name, you'll always be Nex or Nexia to me). You certainly have your fingers into a lot more than I realized... I don't know how you do everything with just 24 hours in the day!

If there isn't, there ought to be.


Entertaining, as always, Nexi!
