Meet the Team: Vianney
31 years old
“The ‘Yes We Can’ Mindset”
Vianney is the Senior Software Engineer guru within the team! Whether in digital photography or at work writing code in Python or C, Vianney pays extremely close attention to detail. He strives to consistently achieve outstanding results and he quotes:
Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away. – Antoine de St Exupery.
Vianney is a hiking and photography addict. He enjoys exploring the Alps to shoot natural landscapes and wildlife with his Nikon D750. His passion takes him to extreme locations in night or day conditions, to capture the most magical features in nature. You might have seen his 500px gallery. His next challenge will be to climb a 4,000-metre summit within the next 12 months! No doubt, we will request a picture to let us know he was there!
True to his word, and ready to share his passion, he is a free software enthusiast. He is also funding collaborative projects on Ulule and actively supporting organizations for wildlife conservation.
Vianney has a ‘Yes we can’ mindset, and is totally committed to doing what’s right for each project and our customers.
I like writing code in Python for its flexibility, but I prefer C when the need is to deploy the most efficient and time-critical applications.
He isn’t slowing down. He’s a detail man, with self-taught abilities from an early age. As a child, Vianney wrote his first internet application to play with Smileys!
I’m a science addict: I enjoy spending time on YouTube and Wikipedia to discover new topics about physics, space, biology, rationalism and applied sciences in general, and going deeper with books and conferences. Knowledge has a purpose, and I want to use this knowledge to achieve great things.
