Aurélien's Room

About me

My name is Aurélien Gâteau, I am a French software engineer currently living in a small village near Paris with my wife and children.

When I was a child, I wanted to be a cartoonist. That was before I stumbled on this strange plastic thing they call a computer. I met my first one when I was 9 year old. It was an Amstrad CPC464 and it changed my life. From this day on, I knew I would be a developer. I never stopped writing code since then. I started with game development, then switched to work on applications when I graduated.

I still enjoy drawing, even if I lack the time to create real compositions nowadays. I guess the combination of these two passions is what got me interested in user experience, design and imaging.

I mostly work on Qt and KDE software these days, but another part of me is currently getting back to what got me into development: games. You can learn more on my other site:
