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 (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, bioinformatics... 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 Senior Software Engineer 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. I discover new things and keep me up-to-date by reading books and technical articles. 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.

Personal projects

Teen Quotes

Teen Quotes lets teenagers share their daily thoughts and feelings. With more than 4M followers on Twitter and 2.5M visitors on the website since the beginning, Teen Quotes is quite popular.

I'm the founder of the website. For this project, I implemented the responsive website and the API. The entire source code is available on GitHub. I also moderate quotes so if you want to know what a 15 year-old teenager thinks, ask me!

Quantic Télécom

Quantic Télécom is an Internet Service Provider for students. At the beginning in 2011, I took part of the implementation of our network in datacenters and residences by installing some servers and antennas. Today, Quantic Telecom is now an established company.

As part of a three-member team we developed a complete public website and some advanced administration tools: billing, support, statistics, security.

Open source projects

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

I have been the #62 most active open source contributor on GitHub in France in November 2019.

Latest articles

I write articles on my blog, every now and then, approximately once a month. I blog about technical topics in PHP, Golang or Python. I also talk about data-related subjects: collecting, transforming and publishing data. Finally, I write about laws around transparency and data protection.
