BOOKS i'm reading
My name is Olivier Langlois and I am a full time Online Entrepreneur. I live in Montreal,Canada and I graduated in electrical engineering at E.T.S. I have spent 15 years as a Software developer including the last three years as an incorporated consultant.
I have been in the telecommunication industry doing, among other things, embedded protocol stacks. I have also worked for the FAA to develop the next generation oceanic ATM system. I was in charge of ATM protocols. After a while, I needed new challenges so I made a jump for a short period of time in the video game industry by working for Quazal, an online multiplayer middleware provider for PCs and video game consoles such as the Xbox, the Xbox360, the PlayStation 2, 3 and Portable. I have worked at StreamTheWorld doing Internet audio/video streaming for 3 years. I have touched the financial industry by working at Morgan Stanley for 18 months.
During my whole software development career, I had a burning desire to push forward my career and by doing so, I have encountered several challenges in career management. Be it seeking the dream job, convincing employers at job interviews, getting a promotion, negotiating with peers, management and clients. I had quit my software development career to share my experience and wisdom acquired with others. My main thrust is to help an average employee to get the job of his dream, empower himself, and become admired.
The tutorials found on this page have been written mostly during the early stage of my career. For some time, I have been a hardcore Windows developer until I made a serious 180 and decided to focus my effort and energy to learn and master Linux. My newer writings can be found on my blogs and in the form of articles on my ebook website. That being said, I cannot deny that period of my career and these tutorials are still visited so keeping them online is my contribution to keep a trace of a distant past. Please enjoy them if they can help you.
