About me

PERSONNAL PATH

I am a computer science enthusiast. Also fond of space exploration and virtual reality. I love sharing passions and debates with new people. In my spare time I code and create games and applications using Unity3D. I also write a blog about 3D printing and I go on mountain walks in the Alps. I like to discover new cultures and connect with strangers.

Public VR Room

Project pitch (2 min)
Read the PDF (french)

I am leading this project within the University of Grenoble since December 2018. I finally raised 5000€ and a dedicated room for the project! This project involves the installation of state-of-the-art virtual reality equipment in a room at the Joseph Fourier University Library. (Featuring Both Oculus Rift S and Valve Index) Access is free of charge and upon reservation. Such a room allow students to become aware of the potential of virtual reality, both through playful discovery and by helping learning in their field of study. This equipment can also serve as a working support for study projects. The purpose of this project is to share one of my passions and to make Grenoble students actors rather than spectators of VR innovation and future society transformations.

With a friend, we participated at the Startup weekend Hackathon. We joined for 72 hours the existing Phoenix Mobility team that aim at converting gasoline cars to Electric Vehicules, to faster the transition to renewable energy. The four co-founders of the project has already made a successfull conversion of an electric vehicule and now have an exiting prototype in Grenoble !

Labyrinth game of speed and agility developed with unity3d and C#.
Your goal in this game is to finish all the 4 levels as fast as possible, and try to beat Jojo's personnal best time. Find the key and the door before the time runs out. Quite simple. Gamepad compatible. You can finish the game in minutes, or even in a few tens of seconds if you're agile enough! For me it's always a pleasure to use the Unity game engine.

Online python Uno game

Date: December 2018
Open on Github

Online UNO game coded with standard python libraries with the Socket library for the netcode. Application also multi-threaded.
Although it does not have fancy graphics, this application is probably the one that took me the most time. Maybe because it was very dense in new knowledge, and because we coded it from scratch.

Entrepreneurship
