🤝 Pleased to meet you too!
On a day to day basis, I am involved in coding, product strategy, and team organization. I have developed an obcession about company culture over the years.
I've worked with various technologies in my career, but I found that common challenges appear in all of them:
Yeeld back-end stack uses Spring Boot with Kotlin, PostgreSQL, Kafka, Elixir, Go + some Node.js and Python. Almost everything runs on our self-managed Kubernetes Cluster in AWS. PostgreSQL is provided by RDS and our Kafka Cluster is self-managed.
Our mobile app uses React Native and Typescript. It's consuming a GraphQL API using the Apollo client. We use the awesome apollo-tooling to generate TypeScript interfaces out of our GraphQL queries.
Eventmaker is an event management software I joined from 2010 to 2017 as the CTO and co-founder. It's a boostrapped, profitable and growing Company, and it's still very healthy as of december 2020 😍.
The stack if mostly Ruby On Rails and MongoDB. It uses React.js in the front-end and after building our own Heroku style inernal PaaS that served production from 2012 to 2016, we finally adopted Kubernetes and the team is still using it today.
I orginially graduated from the Ecole Polytechnique in France with majors in Applied Maths and Economics. I then studied at the London School of Economics for a MCs in Operational Research.
My first job was in Operational Reasearch departement at Air France. During my time at Air France, I was with a team of fantastic engineers whose role was to design and code optimization algorithms in C++. Folks from this team strong sense of business as well as very technical aspects, which was usual in 2008.
During that time, I worked a few personal projects. Those help me understand the broad set of technologies that was available:
