An old and wise adage in the IT world is that you can never have enough talented Software Developers. And that’s why today it’s my pleasure to introduce you to the newest member of our Software Development team: please give a warm Devolutions welcome to Luc Fauvel!
I recently had the chance to chat with Luc and learn more about his background, his role here at Devolutions, and his hobbies.
Here’s a look at our conversation:
Can you tell me a bit about your background?
Growing up, I was surrounded by tech all the time, and I was always in a hurry to get back to my computer and other devices to continue my projects. From an early age, I fully knew that I wanted to be a Software Developer, and so I oriented myself academically to finish school as quickly as possible. By the time I was 19, I had two degrees in computer and software engineering, along with 2 years of work experience in the software development field. Over the last winter, I finished my final internship here at Devolutions, and obtained my Diploma of College Studies in software development.
What would you say is your biggest achievement?
My biggest achievement was creating an AI that analyzed cryptocurrencies and notified users based on trends in cryptocurrency stocks. It was very useful during the cryptocurrency boom, and a couple of my friends used it during that time.
What was it about Devolutions that made you want to work here?
Good software development jobs away from big city centers are scarce, and usually when you do find those jobs, they are not very challenging. Devolutions has an amazing work culture, the work is challenging, and it’s far from a big city center — all of which makes it a wonderful workplace.
What would you say are your top three strengths at work?
One of my top strengths is that I’m a fast learner. I’m also very open minded to other people’s ideas, and I’m very efficient.
What tasks do you carry out in your job, and what are some of the tools you use?
I’m currently a part of the Lucid team and working on several proxies for adding location data and passing data between applications and web browsers. Mostly, I work in Rust, and I use CLion with Rust integration.
What is your impression of working here?
Working here feels very cozy. Everyone here is friendly and ready to help if you need it. It feels like one big family.
What goals would you like to achieve at Devolutions?
I have a lot of ideas, and my biggest goal is to have an idea that can help my team and our applications go as far as possible.
On a personal note, what are some of your hobbies and interests?
I’m really into video games from pretty much every genre. Currently, I’m even helping with the development of an open source voxel RPG. I’m also really into movies, and I write reviews as well.
Please share a few words with our community of IT pros:
I’m extremely happy to be part of the IT world, and I hope my contributions here at Devolutions will help as many people as possible in the IT industry.
