Hi, I am Florent Lamoureux

I am a french JavaScript engineer, currently working as a front-end engineer at Yahoo! on Flickr, in
San Francisco, California.
I have a lot of areas of interest, including photography, music, traveling, politics, international affairs, journalism.
I lived and worked before in
Vancouver and


web & mobile technologies

I have been working since 2009 in consumer and enteprise SaaS startups, as a front-end web or mobile developer. I specialized for a few years in mobile web technologies, did 10+ apps as a freelance and wrote a book on the HTML5/JavaScript framework Sencha Touch. I was also giving training sessions for startups on mobile web technologies such as PhoneGap, Sencha Touch, jQuery Mobile, Appcelerator Titanium... I now work mostly with Angular, Ember, and node.

I also worked a lot on the Chrome platform for extensions and apps, and really enjoyed it. I built a test sequence recorder chrome extension when I worked at BugBuster and continue to work on small chrome projects.

integration testing, continuous delivery, agile workflows

Working on enterprise software has made my interests move to continuous integration, software design, product development strategies and code quality/build tools. I am working in continuous environments where shipping code is just as important as maintaining features avaibility through agile processes, high testing coverage, and data driven development.

open source

I work mostly with emberjs, angular, node, chrome apps, phantomjs. I really ♥ these projects and what they brought to the community .

I have a few open source projects that you can check out too.

master degree in computer science

I finished my Master's Degree in Computer Science from SUPINFO International University in 2013, after studiying both in France and in Canada.



Master degree thesis

I wrote my master thesis on how SaaS startups building enterprise apps can refactor their products' front-end while keeping shipping features.

Sencha Touch 2 book

I've co-written with a coworker a book in French on Sencha Touch to help developers getting started and understand its architecture and philosophy.


Discovering new countries, cities and cultures is one of my long-time passions. I have been an expat since 2011, and each time took time to travel around where I was living, such as western European countries and North American US & Canada cities.
