Where are you from + where are you located currently?
I’m from France, but I now live in Canada. More specifically, I’m from Nantes, which is a mid-sized city close to the west coast of France. And I now live in Montréal, Québec.
When did you first join Lynk Remote Technologies?

I’d self-describe as a continuous integration and continuous development geek.
Favorite TV Shows or Movies pertaining to your position?
My recommendation would be Expert C Programming: Deep C Secrets from Peter Van Der Linen. This is a must for anyone that needs to navigate large, legacy C code bases. Also, Martin Reddy’s API Design for C++ is a great book, full of very good advice for people that are getting started in library development.
