Passionate Full Stack Developer - Paris, FRANCE.


François Gaillard


Passionate, I build my projects from start to finish, including choosing the hardware, setting up the system, developing and deployment of applications. I always keep in mind simplicity, performance and adaptability. While working @PrestaShop I discovered the Open-Source, its community and all of its benefits. Now, I work for a French daily morning newspaper with different approaches and more elaborated projects.

Lead Developer

Various kinds of websites: e-commerce, corporate, voluntary activities, blogging and I also made some basic designs & graphics.



As a web developer most of my projects run Laravel or Symfony, I also enjoy developing on cool other frameworks such as Vue.js. I am convinced that SOA & API centric architectures are the keys to building and running powerful and robust applications.
