I have been in computer science and software engineering for a long time now. I fell into computers, internet and the web around the age of twelve. Since then computers and their capabilities.
I have dual background as both a researcher with a Phd in my pocket and a software architect, 6+ years of experience as such. I have many specialties among which all that is related to data processing, search engines, recommendation engines, data analytics (whether big or small it can always get tough to make it talk), and more. I also have a growing interest for internet of things.
With an entrepreneurial spirit, I am interested in making software solving real people’s problems (not just tech for tech). Complex technology can be useful and change our lives if done well but is not necessarily always the answer. (We don’t know what will be the outcome of the current big buzz word “Big Data”, but tomorrow it may just confirm things we already know or very highly suppose today, and not get us more advanced…). But there are cases where existing technological solutions or scientific know-how are highly underused. That’s my sweet spot: empowering existing business needs with technology capable of bringing those needs with a better response. After a first startup experience, I strongly believe in a lean business development. I offer my services to startups as a freelance to help build their services in such a way, putting hi-level tech only where it makes a real difference and keeping the rest simple. I am working on a project in which, we bring startups the right level of tech for the right needs… but more soon.
During my time in Lyon, I have been an active member of the eco-system there and have actively taken part in the organization of different events:
- I lead the organization of an Internet of things workshop (Atelier Objets Connectés)
- I was ambassador for Lyon of the Hello Tomorrow Challenge (for which with Thomas Guillory we organized an event in Lyon).
- I was part organization team of the 6th Startup Weekend in Lyon
- I as member of the jury of the 2nd fHACKtory hackathon
I am currently working as a senior software developer for SIX Group in their Biel offices. I am also the founder and owner of Boot-Start to help startups in developing the software behind their products and services.
