Hi! My name is Cedric Spalvieri.

I live in the beautifull city of Lyon 🇫🇷, with a wonderful wife and two amazing terrors daughters.
As far as I remember, I’ve always loved tweaking computer related stuff. 🤓

This natural curiosity toward computer behavior led me to coding, and I’ve done it in a professional context for more than ten years now. These years spent coding in teams of various shapes made me realise than more thant the code itself, its quality lies in the people who write it.

I’m now CTO at Novaway, where I try to make the most of my interest for behavioral psychology to enhance processes and practices, keeping the empowerment of the people I work with as a priority.

Mr Robot was one of the most exciting TV show this summer. Its plot was well structured, the work on images and music was executed perfectly, and, as many programmers noted, the tech was (for once) pretty accurate.

As a matter of fact, it was so accurate that most of the hacking process in the show is not technical at all, but psychological.



I’m quite new in the talk game. Nevertheless, I enjoy it because so far it has been a great opportunity to learn new things, meet wonderfull people and have fun.
Here are the talks I’ve already given.
They are in french, but I can translate them if you are really interested in the subject.
Of course, I can also discuss the subject with french speaking people.
