About me

Picture of Boris 'billiob' Faure

Hi, I'm Boris Faure, aka billiob. I'm a 27 years old software engineer living in Paris, France.

You can consult here some of my works or take a look at my Curriculum Vitæ.

I'm actually working at Scality.

Here are some projects I work on my free time:

You can also find other projects I contribute to on or on github.


“Enlightenment is not just a window manager for Linux/X11 and others, but also a whole suite of libraries to help you create beautiful user interfaces with much less work than doing it the old fashioned way and fighting with traditional toolkits, not to mention a traditional window manager. It covers uses from small mobile devices like phones all the way to powerful multi-core desktops (which are the primary development environment).”

I have worked on some of the python bindings (mainly python-elementary) since they are used in aMSN2, but have hacked various bits on both the libraries and the window manager. I also wrote a tiling module for e17. My current involvement on enlightenment is focused on Terminology, a terminal emulator written with the Enlightenment Foundation Libraries.
