He was the product manager for YouTube's video classification team.He has authored a WiFi book, a C++ book, and taught CS in French engineering schools. A few personal fun facts: Aurelien grew up in France, Nigeria, New Zealand, and the U.S. (Berkeley). He studied microbiology and evolutionary genetics before going into software engineering. He was the singer in a rock band, has 2 turtles and 3 hens, has scuba dived with 10-foot sharks, taught his 5-year-old son to count in binary on his fingers (up to 1023), and his parachute didn't open on the 2nd jump.
