My work for Ubuntu

After almost 3 years working on deployment of Ubuntu in education and on LTSP at Revolution Linux, I joined Canonical to focus on Ubuntu even more. I'm now working as a Foundations team member on installer issues, networking (mostly IPv6), containers (LXC, arkose) and the installer (ubiquity, d-i). Recently I've also been involved in upstart and its related projects (libnih and mountall). I'm also one of the two main Edubuntu contributors and an upstream developer of quite a few tools that we ship in Edubuntu (including LTSP).

Other than that I'm active in a few other teams as listed above.

An up to date list of projects I'm working on (most of them outside of my day to day work) can be found at:


When it comes to computer science I've got pretty varied interests and knowledges. I'm initially a network guy who's been managing some pretty complex networks (think IPv6, BGP, IPSEC, dual-stack firewalls, high availability and clustering) but I've also been doing quite a lot of development over the years and am upstream to quite a few software.

I can just as well work on relatively low level stuff (plumbing) than on GUI (gtk/qt mostly) or web interfaces. A good example of a big mix of all of that is WebLive as it's a service to offer full desktops over the network using containers, NX, custom GUIs and a service managing all the accounts and offering an API while having to scale quite well.

Over the last 3 years I grew an interest for application and system containers, initially using OpenVZ and then becoming involved with the LXC guys and working on tools to make them easier to use (arkose).

I also have quite a bit of interest for the use of Ubuntu in education through the work I do in maintaining Edubuntu and other tools that are heavily used in education such as LTSP and iTalc.

What else ?

I'm 23 (in 2013, in case I forget to update the page :)), living since August 2008 in Sherbrooke, QC, CA. I used to live in Bevaix, NE, CH and did my studies there before moving for work to Canada.
