Who I am

Hi! My name’s David, I live in Lyon, France, and I'm a developer. After working for nine years at Booking.com, I decided to take the plunge and fly solo. Try and explore new things, and put my experience to good use in data engineering, architecture design, training, process improvement, etc. I like getting things done.

What I do

Big Data

Hadoop, Hive, Oozie and all the rest. My daily lot for the last four years. Love/hate relationship with a big stack that changes so many things in computing, data, and the real world.

Development

I don’t know how the dev method I’ve worked with is called. A bit of scrum, then devops, I suppose. Flexible goals. Cut the right corners. Communicate. Think a little longer to save time.

Perl

Perl’s dead, of course -for everyone except for those who use it all day and don’t talk about it so much. Because they’re busy making tons of stuff that run and get the job done.
