Hey! I'm Thibaud, technology nerd and dreamer of adventure.
It seems that you do not use an AdBlocker, I think you should! Ads are bad for our brains and the web doesn't need them. You can download uBlock here.
Who am I?
I'm an engineering student at INSA of Rouen, specialized in computer science and more precisely data mining. I'm currently carrying my last internship before my diploma!
I started to build websites 9 years ago, mostly for non-profit organizations, but also prototypes for my numerous ideas. I daily use PHP, Laravel and Git.
I'm a big fan of fantasy and science fiction. I read a lot of Tolkien, Bradley, Hobbs… I also play and organize role-playing games frequently.
I founded my company with some friends one year ago after working as a non-profit organization during 3 years. Quantic Telecom is an internet service provider that respects net neutrality and works for people who have been forgotten by the large national operators.
I'm currently working on our new information system with the Laravel framework. It manages a lot of useful tools (subscriptions, support, payment…) to improve our productivity. Unfortunately, the source code isn't released under an open source license, but it will be soon. I love to use beautiful patterns and great architectures.
Last summer, I carried a 3-month internship at Adludio, a London-based startup working on the next generation of mobile advertising. I enjoy working with modern tools like AWS and Docker.
During this period, I've developed a software in Python to clean data thanks to anomaly detection and played with D3.js for some visualizations. I've also handled the change from their old Event Store NoSQL database to a new architecture involving Amazon Kinesis and Amazon S3. I designed an interface for either batch (S3) or real time (Kinesis) analysis in NodeJS.
Libon is a mobile service designed to improve the communication we have with the people who matter. I've worked in a team of 5 students 22 hours a week during one year for their data scientist team.
We built a prototype using Apache Spark and GraphX to discover communities in their social network. I learned Scala and I develop a strong interest in functional programming and distributed algorithms. We've also used Zeppelin to visualize data.
I'm not a free software fanatic but I try to keep an eye on my personal data. I started with Ubuntu 4 years ago, I'm now working on Archlinux. I quit Facebook two years ago and I try to keep my distance with Google (but it's really hard!). Except when it's absolutely required, I prefer self-hosted solution than cloud computing.
I love to discover new technologies: I tried ReactJS, HHVM, Twister, Rust and a lot more. I'm always looking for new skills to learn.
