Focus on one of our jurors: Quentin (Développeur Libre)

"A few years ago, I entered a computer science engineering school in Caen (ENSICAEN) without really knowing what the daily life of a developer is like. So I learnt different subjects like algorithms, artificial intelligence, and web development. But I missed one subject: iOS development. So I decided to learn this skill on my own and I launched my YouTube channel at the same time to share my learning.

Very quickly, I saw that the craze was there and I decided to create my first digital trainings to learn how to code iOS applications. A few years later, when I passed my last exams at ENSICAEN, I decided to look for an internship in the field I like: mobile development. I spent 6 months in a company in Paris whose specialty was in the mobile development field. This internship showed me one thing: iOS development IS made for me.

With my degree and my YouTube channel -which was starting to gather quite a few people- I decided to devote myself full time to creating educational videos and transmitting knowledge in the field of programming and entrepreneurship
