My name Julien Lengrand-Lambert, and I am a french 35 year old guy living in Utrecht, the Netherlands. I live there for over 10 years with my girlfriend our cat, and our two lovely daughters. They're the best that happened to us!

My purpose is to build islands where knowledge turns into value, and nerds are the heroes.

I work at Adyen during the day as a Lead Developer Advocate of the Developer Relations team. I love building and nurturing communities. I host several meetups such as the weekly Virtual Kotlin User Group or the Amsterdam DevRel Salon meetups. I love to create opportunities for techies to shine, and feed others with their energy.

I am an international Speaker, a Google Developer Expert in Kotlin and a Gitpod Hero.

I am originally an Image Processing engineer, and I used to develop low footprint algorithms on embedded platforms. I also worked in automatic sea mine detection in the past and published papers in conferences. I love to create value through human interaction and technical solutions, from the devOps to the front-end side.
During my free time, you can find me coding, bouldering or doing Krav Maga.

I write blog posts regularly, and am active on Twitter as well.

I love solving real problems, and am always searching for the next challenge. So feel free to contact me, I'd be glad to have a word with you.
