Meet Our Team

Michaël Hoste

« I've been a Rails developer since 2010. Before that, I was having fun programming algorithms in C++ and was repelled by the whole idea of the garbage collector: I was obsessive about every bit of allocated memory (back then, Valgrind was my best friend).

Now, I use my spare time to develop in-browser games using CoffeeScript, and I simply don't care anymore 😄 »

Interests

Watching movies, biking, running, reading, programming, brewing (Belgian) beers.

Pet projects

sokoban-game.com (GitHub), XMoto.io (GitHub, Blog), PonGL (old!)

           

Aurélien Malisart

« I've been working with Ruby and Rails since 2006 and I've been speaking HTML fluently since my teenage years. As far as I remember, it seems I've always been doing Web projects.

My preference in development goes to backend stuff, the code that is behind the scene. I like architecturing APIs, ensuring communications with the other parts of the system.

I've been self-employed since 2009, and I like it! »

Interests

Music, drums, woodworking, biking, barbecues, genealogy.

Pet projects

VAT number validation for ActiveModel, RubyGem for Geni, Standing Desk Building

           

Didier Toussaint

« As a language enthusiast, I studied translation (English and Russian to French) and worked as a freelance translator for several years.

I've been versed in web development since the early 2000s and could not resist the urge to move my career in that direction.

Joining the Translation.io team has allowed me to combine my love for languages and development! »

Interests

Cycling, reading, gardening, studying languages.
