Clément Blanco Clément Blanco Full Stack Web & Mobile Developer Hey, I'm Clem, a French software developer.
Currently Technical Lead at cyber-duck.co.uk.
You can feed me with cheese and wine. Obviously.

Hey, I'm Clem.

I’m a passionate software developer producing efficient applications for web and mobile, using best practices and innovative technologies.

I strive for maintainable products, clean and efficient codebases, and well organised teams where standards, tools, and processes smooth the development to deployment journey.

Naturally curious, I work to maintain a broad range of skills, from web and mobile tech, to DevOps, to team development.

Ultimately, I enjoy producing solid, meaningful products.
