About Me

Hi, I am a Nicolas, a software developer from France, currently living in Poland.

Python is my go to language but I also develop in Rust and Lua from time to time. The Open Source software I write and contribute to is shown in my GitHub profile.

Freelance Work

I help companies like Open Tender build and scale their integrated platform for restaurants or Form Energy improve their ETL pipeline to develop the next generation of batteries.

With ten years of experience in the industry, my domains of expertise include:

  • Backend development: Django, Flask, REST APIs...
  • System administration: Debian, Ansible, Docker...
  • Database administration: PostgreSQL, SQLite, Redis and MySQL
  • Cloud infrastructure: AWS, GCP, OVH...
  • Hardware & Networking

I enjoy developing software and managing the infrastructure that runs it. Doing both gives access to the full picture which is invaluable when building reliable systems.

I am available for contract work, you can contact me by email at nicolas@<domain of this website>.fr.

Background

Before starting as a freelancer I was writing backend code at Growbots, a Polish Startup, and managing servers at OVH, a French cloud provider.

I studied Engineering in Network and Telecommunication at the UTT in France. During my studies I had the opportunity to discover many countries like Canada, Estonia and Poland. They were amazing experiences that developed my taste for living abroad.
