About Patrick Chanezon

Posted by pat 511 days ago


This is Patrick Chanezon's blog, an online place where I share thoughts, code, and a few haikus.

I'm 37, married to Dorothee Chabas, a brilliant neurologist specialized in Multiple Sclerosis. We have 3 great kids: Eliette (), Simon () and Charlotte ().


I work with Google, as Adwords API evangelist.

Before that I was software architect in the Portal group at Sun, where I worked remotely from Paris, France between 2001 and 2005, with teams located in the US and India.

In 2004 I helped launch blogs.sun.com and co-created the ROME (Rss and atOM utilitiEs) project, an open source library designed to make writing syndication applications in java simpler.

I ported Sun ONE Portal Server to Sun, IBM and BEA application servers. I am now working on collaboration in Sun Portal.

My resume is at P@ Resume and this is my most current blog.

Blog History

Over the past few years I have played with various blogging software. My old blogs can be found:

These days I do most of my personal hacking in Ruby, and Ruby On Rails, which is why this blog is powered by the excellent Typo.


I love traveling: here are a few maps of places I've been:


create your own visited country map or write about it on the open travel guide


create your personalized map of europe or write about it on the open travel guide


create your own personalized map of the USA or write about it on the open travel guide
