Hi, I'm Jacques.

Technology addict and horses lover

About

My profile picture.

I am a full time professor in telecommunications at the “Haute école d’ingénierie et d’architecture” of Fribourg. In my free time, I continue to write code, learn things and tinker with technology, but once a week, I go out with my horse for a long ride in the forrest.

My favorite programming language is go and I also like to code in Python and Kotlin. I am teaching Java for the students in the first year (Introduction to programming) and C and ARM assembler for the students in the second year (Embedded systems). I also give a lecture on Operating Systems.

I am passionate about programming and I love to share my passion with others. This is why, with Lucy Linder and Damien Goetschi, I founded the GDG Fribourg (Google Developer Group). I am also the president of the “Passeport vacances Fribourg” and I organize several workshops for the children.
