Tommy Lacroix

I am a web development entrepreneur living in Montreal, QC, Canada.

I learnt programming at the age of 9 when me dad showed my all he knew about it : print and input commands in Basic language. 9 months later, I had exhausted my PET 7KB memory, then it was a TRS-80 model 100, then a i8086. I bought my first computer at 15, an awesome AMD K5, and had fun on the demo scene coding over-optimized video drivers and game-like effects in 586 and 686 assembler.

At the age of 16, I had the chance to meet Benoît Leroux and Martin Langlois, who gave me my first shot as a web programmer to code the first search engine for Go! Montreal, a now deceased web directory devoted to Montreal web sites.

I later worked as a technical support agent for TotalNet (bought by BCE Emergis at the end of the 90) and CAM Internet (now named Cooptel), where I became network operator, then IT operations director. I briefly worked for Zero Knowledge Systems (now named Radial Point) as well.

In 1998, I founded a web development/programming company called Quantik Solutions, and partnered with Frédéric Trudeau in 2006. We’ve had 3 full time employees, and many big and smaller customers. In 2008, we merged with orangetango, a communication agency, to become their web division.

I left the company in April 2009, and I now run a web development and consulting agency called Nuage Lab, specializing in content management systems, web and mobile application architecture and large-scale cloud-based deployment.

I have great interest in programming (PHP, C#, Javascript, node.js, etc.), usability, marketing, artificial intelligence, statistics, software architecture, fitness, rock climbing and bouldering.
