Service Description

I have a wide range of programming skills with a focus on open-source technologies and dynamic scripting languages such as Python and Ruby. I also have significant experience with Java as well as good C++ programming skills on Unix platforms. I have worked on web applications (Ruby on Rails, Django, etc.) as well as graphical user interfaces (Swing, Qt) and server-side components. I always try to take advantage of the latest best practices. Early adopter of MVC, a pattern later brought to the masses by Ruby on Rails, I also use TDD (Test-Driven Development) as a way to minimize risks and time involved in developing and modifying software.

My native language is French but I have worked and lived for several years in English-speaking environments (Canada and England). I have been praised for my ability to write and communicate in English. I also have basic communication skills in Japanese. I understand the importance of communicating accurately and efficiently when working on a software project.
