Mathieu Mourez's Summary

I began programming in BASIC and LOGO in grade school. By my teenage years I was running my own BBS and experimented with Linux before the 1.0 release. We hacked our way on the Internet before commercial ISPs. I started working full time in IT in 1997 as front-line phone support technician for a dial-up provider, wrote all software installers and documentation and ended up in charge of all computer systems there within a couple of years. Since then, I've accumulated experience in half a dozen of small to mid-sized companies and as a freelancer, setting up and maintaing office network infrastructures, simultaneously acting as webmaster, database administrator and project manager. I'm well known for my obsession with following standards and writing proper documentation. I've also sucessfully lead squad-sized programming teams, and been in charge of all IT purchases, hires, team-management and long-term planning.
