Hi, I’m Philippe, but I prefer to go by Phil.

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 to tackle technical concepts and applying them quickly by working on small projects.
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.
I also like to play Counter-Strike or Rocket League when I have some free time.
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.

I created and maintained a timelapse of a virtual canvas where people place colored pixels to make art. (April 2017 - January 2020)
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.
