Mikelangelo a Horizon 2020 European research project centered around ScyllaDB, OSv, and virtualization technologies. Flew to SF, Herzliya, and worked with the EU project members in Haifa, Ajdovščina, and Brussel.
QEMU contributor Open source freelancer for Outscale: designed and wrote new QEMU block drivers and subsystems. Contribute them with an upstream-first policy to the QEMU community. Contributed patches on various OSS projects. Created Packetgraph a library designed to process packets with high speed, and low latencies using the DPDK. Flew to Germany and Spain a couple of time to see QEMU contributors and maintainers. Choose my replacement from Igalia.
TV over IP For a French telecom operator cleaned up a Linux kernel module used for the RTSP cryptographic decoding part of the STB’s SOC. Writing of a UPnP port remote opener for the STB, and co-work on a real-time video transcoder targeting Apple’s HLS player.
Dental Healthcare Software Swiss-Army knife developer. Mostly in-charge of the code and infrastructure that shipped the software on Debian machines. Optimized an imagery filter by displacing a costly calculation out of a loop and vectorizing the rest of it with MMX assembly. Never lost any data thanks to Rsync and Chronodisk.
Gentle Operator From N00bL4nd For a Web-Agency: scripted accounts creations, verifications, and removal with BASH and Cursel. Cleaned-up dirty mechanical mouses wheels and bought boiling-hot AMD/VIA computers for designers and staff. Proudly never spied on any user email. Wrapped OpenSSH sftp.c in a C PHP extension then lost the code. Fearlessly replaced Windows NT™ with a Debian running Samba, then enabled opportunistic-locking on it, which I suspect corrupted the Sage™ accounting software database. Enabled roaming profiles in Samba and saw immediately the boss user profile squashed at next login due to clock skew. Ran a backup script from home while being sick, just to found the following day that the underlying source hard-drive died overnight. Got help from a Pick System veteran to escape from vi the first time.
Telco operating a pager network Over skilled dropout in charge of switching tapes then launching the backups and batches scripts in the evenings, monitoring them and never, never do anything as root on the empty, idling PA-RISC servers. Quote from the DBA from Quebec: ‘SQL tu n’as que quatre commandes à apprendre INSERT, UPDATE, SELECT, DELETE et, éventuellement GRANT et CREATE si tu fait comme moi !‘.
