About Me

I'm Damien Laureaux, French, 40 years old and 20 years of experience as Backend/Frontend Developer, Mobile Developer, DevOps and Cloud Engineer working in and for small to large companies.

Self-taught, effective problem solver who enjoys participating in the automation of everything to reduce manual processes, cost and improve the quality of the releases with a predilection for mobile app and cloud projects.

A constant learner, always in search of new challenges, enjoying sharing skills and experiences with people, I use my free time to contribute to the Open-Source community when I'm not attending a Meetup :)
