My name is Remi Martel, I am a software engineering student at the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM). I am interested in web programming, game developping and DevOps. I currently work part-time remotly for Nightborn a Digital Application Agency based in Brussels, Belgium as a back-end programmer in Dotnet Core and Node.Js.
To this day, I have worked at UQAM, at the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) and at Les Pros de la Photo in Montreal. At the CSA I learned how to work with the Unity engine and AR tech. I implemented voice and gesture commands for the International Space Station simulator on Microsoft's Hololens. In my other work experiences, I have mostly used C# and the ASP.NET core framework to do web development.
Each year, I like to volunteer at various video game related events. Since 2016, I have been the LAN director at Otakuthon where I manage a team of volunteers and organise every aspect of the LAN gaming department. After starting at Otakuthon, I also started volunteering for Dreamhack Montreal and LAN ETS. For both events, I help setup the various installations before and I am part of the tech support crew during them. I also started helping with the logistics department for Dreamhack.
In 2018, I successfully received my technical DEC in computer science from Champlain College Saint-Lambert. I then started university by studying software engineering at ETS. A year later, I realised that the ETS's program wasn't technical enough for me, so I changed to the software and computer engineering program offered by UQAM. Currently, I should be graduating in May 2022.
