I'm a 31 year old French backend engineer, currently employed as a Data Reliability Team Lead at Datadog.
I have fierce self-learning and communication skills, and I am a heavy user and promoter of free software. I enjoy designing and working on distributed systems. My favorite language is Python, but I enjoy using other languages as well, such as Go.
I have a strong grasp of what’s behind the scene of a distributed application : from development, testing, monitoring, load balancing, automatic deployment, server administration, emergency intervention, post-mortems and customer-facing communication. I try to be as polyvalent as possible. I’m deeply influenced by the Site Reliability Engineering book, by Google, as I do my best to build resilient and autonomous systems.
I like to talk. A lot. So much, that sometimes, I put it to good use, and give talks and tutorials. I focus on introductory talks (about a language, a system, a framework, a library, etc), as I strongly feel that the technical world needs more diversity. I'm happy to try changing that at my humble level by helping people jump the bridge.
I also enjoy tinkering, cycling, cooking, baking, music (playing as much as listening), reading nerdy books and French classics, as well as watching the entire Doctor Who series backwards (all that time travel makes it surprisingly possible).
