Since we didn’t reached end-January yet, I wish you a very happy 2020 to you and your loved ones!

Who am I?
I currently leave in Paris but I come from Pau, in the South West of France, close to the Pyrenées.
Currently I am one of the Engineering Lead for SAP Intelligent Robotic Process Automation.

I am a father of 2 girls and except me at home everybody has English as mother tongue.

If you were 20 again, what would you study?
Clearly Data Science.
Now working in SAP, we have the opportunity to learn in parallel to our daily job, and I have just successfully completed a one year diploma at X on Data Science!
