My name is Adrien. I’m a French guy who currently lives in Montreuil, Paris area, France.
As a software engineer, I develop full-stack web products: notably a crawler for Algolia. I’ve also maintained several side projects, mostly free to use and/or open source, including:
- Next Step for Trello, a Chrome extension I wrote to progress more efficiently on my projects;
- Startup Tour, a French MOOC co-authored with David Wise on how to create a Lean Startup company, from 0 to 1;
- and Openwhyd, a social music discovery platform that I developed in my ex-startup and open-sourced in 2016.
I enjoy sharing what I learn: by teaching, giving talks, writing articles, research publications and by replying to questions on Quora, occasionally. In the past, I organized Angelhack and fHACKtory hackathons, in Paris and Lyon.
Last but not least, I love playing drums with my band Harissa and during jam sessions. Previously, I recorded an album with Man Is Not A Bird (my previous band), among other musical adventures.
You can read what I’m doing now, listen to my musical discoveries on Openwhyd and follow my updates on twitter: @adrienjoly.
