Paris, France

Web and mobile expert, JoliCode


After graduating from École Nationale Supérieure de Sciences Appliquées et de Technologie and Télécom Paris, I began to work professionally on web projects in 2005. In March 2012, I co-founded JoliCode, a Web- and Mobile- expertise company, which focuses on improving the quality of Web projects.

I am the author of several translations of Recommendations of the W3C, and I master the problems of inter-operability and accessibility of Web applications. More generally, my approach to computing leverages the methods and techniques that promote a long-term development of Web architectures.

I am particularly interested in technologies related to PHP frameworks - for example, I am the author of several plugins for the Symfony PHP5 framework - and the Semantic Web. These are issues on which I regularly publish in international magazines. My areas of expertise include the development, project management, training, and consulting. Since February 2012, I am the President of AFUP, the French Association of PHP Users.

Xavier Lacot is a member of the community since August 2006.
