Étienne Fortier-Dubois

Programmer and writer based in 📍 Montreal, Quebec

I am a generalist at heart. Over the years I’ve been involved in scientific research in evolutionary biology, cancer care data, fiction and blog writing, and natural language software.

I been programming less than I would have liked in the last year or two, so I’m now looking for work in a tech company with fun people. My main work experience in tech is macOS development and iOS development, which I enjoy and would be glad to work on in a professional setting. I would also be happy to branch out to other kinds of software engineering, particularly natural language processing. I’m currently following the fastAI course to refresh my knowledge of machine learning and deep learning.
