Public appearances :-P

Today is PR day ;) I've been invited to talk at two very cool technical events in Paris happening in the next weeks.

The first one is the "CTO Crunch" event organized by France Digitale on February 24. where I will talk about the challenges faced by fast-growing teams & platforms, how to detect them early and how to fix them, aka CTO lessons from the trenches :) Only a few seats left, act fast if you're interested.

The second one is the AWS Startup day, where I will giving a keynote speech on how we're currently moving Viadeo to the AWS cloud. Registration is open as well.

If you're in Paris area, please consider dropping by. Happy to meet and maybe have a beer or two :)

Viadeo @ Devoxx France 2015


Working at Viadeo (www.viadeo.com) now. The Aldebaran adventure didn't work out as planned: details in this Rude Baguette post, which feels to me like a pretty accurate description of what happened.

Anyway, I'm super happy to announce that my team will be giving two technical talks at the upcoming Devoxx France conference in Paris (April 8-10).

The first talk is entitled "Un News Feed temps réel personnalisé pour 65 millions d’utilisateurs" and will present how we rebuilt the Viadeo newsfeed, how we deliver in real-time personalized content to our users, why we love Elastic Search, etc.

The second talk is entitled "Toute la stack technique de Viadeo sur un poste de développement avec Docker" and will present how a Viadeo developer can run all of our stack on his own machine by launching a simple Docker script !

If you're attending Devoxx France, don't miss these sessions and please drop by to say hi!
