Fabien Warniez Software Engineer

I am a Software Engineer with 10 years of experience. The bulk of my experience is around designing and implementing web-based applications in PHP and .NET. I have significant experience in both front-end and back-end implementations but am more interested in back-ends, namely distributed data management and real-time data processing.

My recent accomplishments include contributing to the delivery of the site TheSims.com (1 year, PHP / Symfony), as well as successfully leading a team of 7 to the delivery of CineCoup.com (1 year, PHP) — a new social-media powered platform for financing indie films.
