Professional Profile

I'm an experienced Full-Stack developer, with strong creative skills and a strong experience within the finance industry.
My most significant mission allowed me to design, implement and maintain a Quantitative Analysis and Document Management tool that is now used by 50+ multi-management analysts around the world, in London, Boston, Paris, Germany and South Africa.
I also had the opportunity to create my own software company, Everydev, in France a few years ago.

I'm also the author of a few open-source projects, one of which is an Agile Retrospective board (www.retrospected.com).

Full-Stack Developer, Architect

BNP Paribas - FundQuest UK, Full-Time

  • ASP.NET
  • C#
  • NHibernate
  • MySQL
http://www.invms.co.uk

Design, implementation and maintenance of a Quantitative, Document Management and Trading Web Application.
The system is a complete architectural redesign of an existing intranet, after assessment of its flaws.
This Web Application serves 3 main purposes, and 3 categories of people:

  • Quantitative analysis tool (for Quants) (Performance reports, custom graphs, funds management, peer groups, statistics)
  • Document management (meeting and research notes, attachments, full text search on content, complex search facilities)
  • Trading system (Management of all FundQuest UK trading, reports, portfolio valuations, links with some electronic trading systems (EMX)) These are some of the areas of the system that I've been designing:
  • Core architecture: I brought NHibernate for the Data Access Layer, and pushed for the use of a source control tool (SVN), along with a Unit Testing tool (NUnit)
  • Performance: The most challenging aspect of the application: all the calculations are made on the fly, using a combination of caching, high-performance stored procedure, and pre-fetching of information
  • Charting: I've introduced Dundas Chart, and implemented most of the pages using this library
  • Web Pages: I've introduced the use of master pages, as the previous project was using frames
  • Security: I made most of the pages viewable in a "read-only" mode, with a combination of techniques I designed
  • Documents: All documents can be linked to any entity (funds, users, universes...), and all their content are indexed

The Silverlight based software is used around the globe to manage RBS and its subsidiaries contracts and allows netting calculations.

  • The client is based on Silverlight
  • The server is C# 4 based
  • The communication between the client and the server is based on WCF (binary serialisation)
  • The data access layer is using NHibernate, with attribute-based mapping
  • The changes in the database schema are managed by Migrator.NET
  • Entities to DTOs mapping is done using AutoMapper
  • The Dependency Injection framework is AutoFac
  • The Silverlight UI is using Infragistics for the ribbon and other controls

Aspect oriented programming (AOP) is also used to manage NHibernate sessions (transactions), using the PostSharp framework.

The development environment is based on a stack of well-known open source products such as:

  • CruiseControl.NET and NAnt for the continuous integration
  • NUnit for unit testing
  • log4net for logging
  • Rhino Mocks for unit test mocking

The Agile methodology was used throughout the life time of the project, with a 10 minutes stand-up meeting every morning, regular retrospective meetings, Test Driven Development (TDD) was also enforced and code reviews were done before each commit.
I have also scored 100th percentile (worldwide) on the Brain Bench test while applying for this contract.

Over 5,000 unit tests have been written for this application, using frameworks such as NUnit, Moq, SpecFlow and Selenium.
