You can find me usually under the usernames philippeloctaux or x4m3.


I got into tech by learning system administration and setting up servers.

Then got interest into programming by tinkering my linux machine and learning about the kernel and low-level programming.

I started the Epitech computer science school and learned how to solve solutions quickly by working on small projects, each tackling a technical concept.

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

When I feel like it, I write on my blog and upload videos.

Almost always working while listening to music or podcasts.

I speak English, French 🇫🇷 and Russian 🇷🇺.


Most of what I do is not listed here, usually I hack in something quickly or learn for personal research.

vim plugins

I use vim as my text editor of choice, so I learned Vimscript and wrote plugins to make my life easier.


Giving small talks helps me reduce my fear of public speaking, and I get to share what I know.
