Bonjour! 👋

I’m Thomas Gauvin, a software engineering student focused on building products that people ❤️️.

Let's connect on LinkedIn!

Who am I?
I’m currently in my final year of my Software Engineering Bachelor's degree at Concordia University. I've been actively involved in student life.

As a kid, I always said that I wanted to be an inventor. Nowadays, I use software to build products that people love.

I’m interested in startups, teaching and urban mobility. To de-stress, I like to play tennis, cycle and go camping. 🎾 🚲 🏕️

inspiration
Having used Khan Academy throughout my academic path, I've been amazed by what Sal Khan has been able to build, from a small tutoring hobby to a global vision of free world-class education for everyone.
I read this book within a few days. I was glued to it. An inspiring journey, where Phil Knight went from accountant to starting a small shoe company. You may have heard of it, it's called Nike.
