Meet Sylvain Milan, Software Engineer @ Linkurious

The Linkurious team is growing and we are glad to welcome a new member. Sylvain Milan is joining us a a Software Engineer. Welcome Sylvain!


Who are you?

I’ve just graduated from EPITA after spending one year in Dublin. I’m quite happy for having been hired at Linkurious: small team, nice environment, not much constraints, precisely what I was looking for. Apart from that, I think I perfectly match the definition of “hardcore gamer”: I play a lot, and competition is what motivates me. Sometimes I wish I was born a bit later so I could have a bigger opportunity to become a pro gamer…

Can you tell us about the technologies you love?

My favorite technologies are without a doubt Javascript and C++. I love Javascript for the flexibility, the ease of use, and the fact you can use it for about everything (client side, server side, any OS, etc). C++ is more mitigated, I hate a lot of thing about it (dependencies management, verbosity), but at the same time it really allows to make the most performant applications. I really have the feeling to switch to “hard mode” when using C++, and that’s great.

What do you expect to learn at Linkurious?

Some WebGL. I have the feeling it’s part of the future. Also, how to build and run a start-up.

Which super hero or fictional character would you be?

Probably not very known, but I would say Mashiro or Takagi from Bakuman. I have the deepest respect for people who give their 100% to live on something they love on their own, especially when they are young.

What is one thing few people know about you?

I LOVE plushes 😀
