This cowgirl turned wannabe-European spent the first 5 years after university working and traveling through Asia and Africa before discovering her love of Southern Europe – Portugal in particular. Shannon’s professional focus was mainly marketing and business development, but entering Lisbon’s startup scene has changed her tune. She is now warming up her tech muscles while pursuing her own startup dreams and mobilizing Portugal's inspired-entrepreneurs to bootstrap and build “it” themselves.
When Cyrille realised it was time to drop out of his 5-year "engineering school" in Lyon, France, it was to join the startup scene and learn how to code properly by hands-on work. After France, he moved to Vancouver then later on to Berlin sharpening his back-end development skills. In 2015, he decided to devote his time to teaching and specifically to dev-bootcamps as they reflect exactly his idea of education for a fast-paced, high-tech and innovative world.
Back when he was 19, Jad founded eTobb, a startup that connects patients & doctors in the middle east. Since then, he's been on a mission to inspire developers, by presenting advanced topics & best practices at conferences around the world. He's also passionate about open source and loves teaching at Le Wagon.
