Cats Who Code

Position: Owner at Web Development Studio



Cats Who Code is a website dedicated to those who create and maintain websites : web developers, web designers, webmasters, and so on.
Our aim is to make web development easier and more fun by providing high quality resources and useful tutorials to our readers.

The website has been founded in June 2008. The name “Cats Who Code” came from the founder’s immoderate love for these sweet, friendly and funny animals (And also because domains like were already taken).


My name is Jean and I’m a 34 years old web developer and professional blogger. I was born and raised in Paris, France and I now live in Finland with my wonderful wife. I first used the internet in 1998, built my first website in 2001 and finally started to work as a professional web developer in 2005. In 2010, I left my job and created my own web development studio.

I have blogged several times on Smashing Magazine and also own a WordPress hacks site
