Max’s Introduction

Max Froumentin · June 4, 2010

Max FroumentinHaving joined the Foundation earlier this month, I thought I’d introduce myself to the readers of this blog.
My name is Max Froumentin. I come from France, where I was educated in the ways of computer science. Later I joined the W3C, helping to design various Web standards, and learning a lot about Web technology. Then, I jumped the fence that separates standards design and standards adoption and became engineer at Joost, then a video-on-the Web startup, whose software architecture relied on many technologies created at W3C. Later I jumped another fence and moved on to work for Opera where I learned about yet another aspect of Web technology: making browsers.

When I was lucky to be given the opportunity to join the Foundation, I realised that it would be the best possible way to put what I had learned to use. Now that I am on board, I’m hoping that I can apply that knowledge where it can help the most. In particular I expect that the specific know-how I acquired on mobile, voice, and crowdsourcing technologies will be useful to the work of the Foundation. Watch this space to find out.
