Hi everybody!

I’m Peter Villani, very happy to join Algolia as Technical Writer!

Happy because I get to ask lots of questions and learn from top-level engineers and designers how to build great software - from engine to front-end.

I started out as a developer, developing desktop and real-time systems, and then web applications. All during this time, I was documenting everything I coded. Eventually I closed the IDE and wrote full-time.

You can spot me on the net with my handle @codeharmonics

Hi everyone !

I’m Jonathan, Software Engineer at Algolia, and I work on the community project Places, so I can’t wait to see what amazing stuff you’ll create using it.

I love coding in Javascript/ES6+, with React/Redux being my go to framework for front-end dev, in the back-end you’ll see me use Node.JS, Python or Java.

You can find me on github here.

My name is Sergio and I’m a SRE in the Foundation Squad. I’m very excited to be here :slight_smile:

I’m originally from Spain but many people think I look Irish aye !! I worked in the Telco industry for some years but I decided to switch my career.

One of the things I started learning outside work was coding in Go, hopefully I can learn more here. However I also built an AWS cli in bash when AWS tools required Java, long time ago…

If you need something just ping me.

Hey guys!
I’m Tobi and I recently started at Algolia as a Solutions Engineer based in the Paris Office.
Originally from Toronto, I’ve been working as a frontend developer in Paris for the past 3 years. I love CSS and JS. Lately I’ve been playing around with React, making mini apps mostly on Codepen, while using modern CSS layouts…:hocho: to floats, :heart: to grid.

Disclaimer: I already introduced myself here with my personal account, so I’m redoing this with my Algolia account now :slight_smile:

Hi! I’m Adrien, code lover since I was 6 y.o. Started to program in JavaScript back in 2002, when webviews were powered by Internet Explorer, and slow routines were coded in C++ and embedded as ActiveX DLLs. :sweat_smile:

I’ve built too many products, as a startup employee, freelance developer, and indie hacker. I mostly use node.js, express and vanilla/DOM JavaScript. I also used Meteor at some point but got tired of it. (I attended the last Meteor Paris meetup at Algolia HQ, tho!)

My first contact with Algolia was when they kindly sponsored my hackathon: fHACKtory, back in 2012! Then we used Algolia in my ex-startup (Whyd, now Openwhyd), to replace our buggy ElasticSearch configuration.

Now, I’m working at Algolia, building the Custom Website Crawler in Node.js! :nerd_face:

Cheers! :beers:

Hi there Algolia-peeps,

I am Stéphanie, founder of modaResa, a web-app backed by the Family. The journey has just started, and I am looking for some tech-savvy interns in web developpement, and a CTO (long shot, but throwing it out there). If you know someone that could fit, let me know.
It’s a supercool and automated real-time scheduling tool, based on several specific constraints. I have done usertests with major potential clients, and not one single company has said no to use and pay for it in the future.

I spoke to Olivier at Algolia, who suggested I’d post it here.
Thanks in advance!
