Through its 1000mercis Impacts initiative, Numberly has been actively working with tech and non tech associations over the years for social, environmental and educational causes.

As part of these commitments, we want to hand over the stage of this talk to some of our close partners.
> Margaux from Latitudes.cc will introduce you to the various ways technology can be used for general interest.
> Brieuc from Code Phoenix will share his great experience in coding teaching in prisons to help rehabilitation.
> Souad from Descodeuses will explain how her association drives more women from disadvantaged neighborhoods in tech jobs.

This talk is for all of you who are curious to know how to use your skills for a greater good. Join us to hear and share about Tech for Good!

Numberly

CTO at Numberly, Open-Source contributor, Gentoo Linux developer, PSF contributing member.

I’ve been giving talks for a few years now, mostly to share my experience on architecture design, distributed systems, fault tolerance and scaling Python.

Numberly is a Marketing Technologist that helps its customers leverage the value of their data using all the digital communication channels available. We own and operate our infrastructure and are working on building large scale and highly available global architectures and applications. Our main development language to achieve this in all this variety of use cases is Python!

As a Gentoo Linux developer I focus mainly on clustering and NoSQL related packages. I'm a packager of various Open Source projects such as uwsgi, mongodb, consul, rabbitmq, keepalived, scylla...

Latitudes

Always looking for new challenges, it was during my university studies in Canada that I developed my interest for social entrepreneurship. Attracted by the ambition and the values of Latitudes, a collective movement of tech actors working to create a committed and responsible technology, I decided to join the adventure in March 2018. Over the past 4 years, this movement has reached 10,000 people and enabled the realization of 500 tech projects for the common good !

CodePhenix

I co-founded CodePhenix in 2017 with the goal of using digital as a lever for vocational reintegration for former inmates.
Stubborn and optimistic, we succeeded in 2019 in setting up the 1st web development training in a French prison. We also installed a web agency there, so that our learners can build a portfolio during their time in prison and, in so doing, increase their chances of finding a job that is stable and well-paid
