About Phil

Developer of all sorts

I got into computer science by learning about the Linux kernel and administrating servers.

After high school, I became a student at Epitech and learned to tackle technical concepts and apply them quickly by working on small projects.

During my studies at Epitech, I had the opportunity to be a teacher. My role was to assist students with technical problems in their projects.

Now I have experience in software engineering, full-stack web and mobile development, system administration and CI/CD, as well as embedded development.

My goal is to use my knowledge and experience to make software helping its users accomplish their needs.
