Hi, I'm Cyril Lacote

a French Java developer

I do software for a living. I live in Saint-Étienne (France) (the Brooklyn of the Silicosis Valley), with my family, and work remotely for Adyen as a Principal Software Engineer.

My girlfriend is Agnès Crépet, she works for Fairphone as Head of Software Longevity & IT.
We have two sons: Marius and Lucien.

Before that, we lived in Amsterdam (The Netherlands) for three years. We still share our time between home and Amsterdam, where we go regularly by train.

Before that, I had been working in Lyon, France where I co-founded the collaborative software company Ninja Squad (I was CEO, Chief Emoji Officer), and the tech conference MiXiT.

Before having kids, we had the chance to travel the world and meet other developers. We reported about this experience in a talk (in French).
