About This Blog

To put you in context, I found myself searching the web to find informations or programming solutions in order to solve problems that I already encountered. So I thought "Hey, I could create a blog to store any bug or code that I believe could be useful in the future for me or somebody else!" Take a look inside and share if you liked anything in this blog!

My name is Olivier Dugas. I’m a junior software engineer that graduated from Laval University in Quebec City in 2012. I’ve also a Masters in Computer Science. My specialisation is probabilistic robotics. I chose this path for three main reason.

  • Since computer science and software engineering is considered as the same in my city, I wanted to specialize in order to look a bit more appealing for companies.
  • I enjoy working with robots and doing researches. I love to solve hard challenges and I hate to be tought as “yet another programmer”
  • My greatest weakness at school was probabilities, so I told myself: “Hey, why don’t you master this science, since you find it difficult”

Also, I’m a software professional. By professional, I mean that I worship code quality. By code quality, I mean code that read like well written prose, which is fully covered by tests, and which is structured in a clean architecture.

What I can do for a company:

  • I am good in solving problems
  • I code clean as I learned from the bests (Elapse Technologies)
  • I know many languages. Name it, I can program it. Otherwise, give me a week and you will be impressed, I mean it
  • I prefer to work with the Agile/Scrum methodology. That said, I can adapt to anything very fast
  • I prefer research jobs, technical jobs and training jobs over project management jobs, but I have solid experience in all of these domains
