Antoine Augusti

Hello World, I'm Antoine Augusti

Cool facts about me

I am a passionate software engineer. I'm comfortable around and interested by distributed systems, API design, automated testing tools, machine learning algorithms, system administration, recruiting tech profiles and laws (regulations, public sector transparency, data privacy). I have been involved at different levels in a lot of sectors: Internet service provider, car rental, sea rescue operations, customer service, fraud detection, inspiring quotes for teenagers, gaming servers, equity crowdfunding, mobility services... Did I mention that I'm French? Sorry, I don't live in Paris — but I've been there and you should too.
I love to learn. I'm a Freelance Tech Lead at, working for the French national access point to transport data. Previously, I worked at the Canadian Digital Service, in the federal government of Canada and Etalab, in charge of the French government data policy and data-driven transformation for public administrations. I studied at the INSA Rouen and the University of Rouen with majors in software engineering, machine learning and data mining. My day job is spent on open-source projects and open data resources. I also tried to wakeboard, but I'd rather not discuss that.


I taught classes about web technologies and numerical arts at Sciences Po Paris and Reims. Topics covered are: algorithms, HTML, CSS, Internet architecture, history of the Web, writing small programs and web pages.
I mentored students in the Polytechnique-HEC entrepreneurship program. I helped them navigate the tech sector, how to start a startup, how to hire talents, understand technologies and costs.
I taught classes about relational and NoSQL databases and mentored end-of-year projects related to real-time transport systems.
I taught classes about NoSQL databases versus relational databases and practicals session in networking about packet switching, bridges, VLANs, DNS and DHCP to engineering students in their fourth year.
I mentored online students in order to help them obtain certifications and diplomas. I helped them learn the following technologies: HTML5, CSS3, PHP, relational databases, object oriented design, web server administration and basic networking.
I helped non-technical employees discover databases and learn some bits of SQL to help them get the data they need to answer questions. This was also an opportunity to show what are the various components behind a typical web application.

Open source projects

I write and contribute to projects on GitHub. My main languages are Elixir, Python, Golang, PHP and HTML/CSS/JavaScript. I write most of my professional and personal code with open source licenses.

I have been in the top 100 of the most active open source contributors on GitHub in France every year since 2019.
