Hello, my name is Philippe Creux.
I am a Software Developer based in Vancouver, BC. I deeply care about shipping software that’s simple, robust and cost-effective.
I build healthy software at Zipline.
I’ve been sharing my learnings and practices on various blog posts and built several open source projects.
