About Olivier Laviale

Olivier works at HelloFresh as Backend Chapter Lead for the customer retention tribes. That's a bit of mentoring, technical excellence, best practices, and communication.

Olivier is a veteran software engineer, with more than 25 years of experience in software design, development, and architecture. Self-taught, he started programming at age 14, copying lines of BASIC on his cousin's 6128. At age 18 he bought an Amiga 1200, that changed his life forever. He created LotanLibs to extend BasicBlitz2; and Feelin to create and maintain system applications and their UI. Building Feelin's website he discovered PHP and a brand new world to explore.

Since then he created ICanBoogie, a super fast micro-framework; Brickrouge a collection of libraries to create and animate HTML elements; IDependOnYou, a super tiny AMD implementation; Icybee, a buzzing CMS; and a bunch of little things… As a firm open-source believer, he also contributed to multiple projects such as MooTools, Bootstrap, MacDown, gfm_viewer, html5please, ApiGen, and Composer.
