What do I believe in?

What is my expertise?

Hard skills


Development

Let me code.

I love programming.
I have years of experience on critical business applications deployed worldwide. I know how to code safely, quickly and in a team. My speciality is server side C#.

Quality improvement

With an Agile developer's mind...

Everyone agree now on the importance of unit tests and refactoring. To decrease troubleshooting and thus delivery times, the key is to keep builds short and trigger them on commit.

Performance and Memory optimisation

Profile and optimise.

The first step in improving your application is proper measurement in order to identify where improvements are needed. Knowing the right tools and how to use them efficiently is what you can expect from a world class developer.

Soft skills


Communication

Working together to achieve something bigger.

The art of software development isn't all about your coding skills. The secret is to invest time understanding your clients and collaborating with your colleagues. If you are not, you're only doing half of your job.

Dynamism

You want to gets Things Done!

There something special about London. You cannot stay in the world’s most competitive market by chance. You have to keep your skills sharp enough to be able to challenge the bests. It is expected from you to be reactive to any difficulties met on your project.

Multi-cultural

In a world always changing...

Even if I am used to work in English, I speak as well French and Spanish.

You have questions? You have ideas? I am always interested in chatting with smart people. As I am nomad and always working on one or two projects, I could take time to answer sometimes.
