My name Julien Lengrand-Lambert, and I am a french 31 year old guy living in Utrecht, the Netherlands. I live there for 6 years with my girlfriend and our cat. And at the end of September 2016, I became the father of a little thing that keeps us awake at night and brings us all of the love in the world.

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

I work at ING during the day as a Full-Stack developer and community developer. I love building and nurturing communities. I host several meetups such as the weekly Coffee, Code and Chat or the Elm Netherlands meetups. I love to create opportunities for techies to shine, and feed others with their energy.
At ING, I am for example ar the origin of the ING Tech Blog, or the monthly Lunchspirations.

This fall, I became a speaker at a conference for the first time, and I loved it!

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; but I must admit that I usually prefer building stuff!

Some of my projects include :

  • SkyAI, a startup that aims at generating sustainability insights for businesses, municipalities and countries using satellite imagery.
  • Computer Vision companies, an evergrowing list that I curate for almost 10 years. I get a lot of emails about it :).
  • OpenCVPlanet, a twitter account that gathers blog posts from famous computer vision experts.

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.
