I grew up in Grenoble, France, where there’s a lot research labs, so I wanted to be a Physics researcher.
It took me a while, after getting my Physics degree, to realize that I wasn’t suited for this, and that CS was my stuff.
I barely programmed before that, just a bit of C, and learnt by myself.
IT conferences are great chances to meet people and share ideas. VoxxedDays Belgrade is a bit special for me, because I’ll finally get the chance to meet some super cool developers I’ve been in touch for some time, such as Igor Spasic from Jodd. I can’t wait for it!
Growing my own open source project, Gatling. It started as a hobby, I first released 4 years ago and I was super excited the software was downloaded 15 times. Now, it’s downloaded about 15.000 times per month and used all over the world, I get the chance to speak at conferences and meet great and passionate people.
