I love to learn. I'm a data engineer at Drivy, the leading car rental platform in Europe. I studied at the INSA Rouen and the University of Rouen with majors in software engineering, machine learning and data mining. In my free time I take classes on Coursera to discover new things. I try to keep my brain busy in my free time with code katas and read a lot of technical books or articles. I also tried to wakeboard but you really don't want to know that.


I prepared and gave a class about NoSQL databases versus relational databases and did practicals session in networking about packet switching, bridges, VLANs, DNS and DHCP to engineering students in their fourth year.
I am mentoring Premium students in order to help them obtain certifications and diplomas. I am mentoring around the following technologies: HTML5, CSS3, PHP, relational databases, object oriented design, web server administration and basic networking.

Open source projects

In my free time I write and contribute to open source software. That's my way to say thank you to contributors around the world that are building the amazing tools I use everyday.

And countless other projects I have used and where I have just sent 1 or 2 pull requests. Many thanks to all the amazing open source contributors and projects. I owe you.

Latest articles

I try to write an article every month or so. If I don't respect this, it means that I'm usually busy with an interesting project, worth a blog post at the end of the day.
