Julien Lecomte
Senior Frontend Software Engineer, Yahoo!


I am currently an engineer on Yahoo!‘s DHTML Evangelist team, a group that provides architectural assistance to Yahoo! developers on the design and implementation of rich interactions in the browser, working alongside the famous Douglas Crockford and Iain Lamb (co-founder of OddPost) Among other things, I have worked extensively on Yahoo!’s new Mail application, and I am the author of the YUI Browser History Manager and the YUI Compressor. I have also contributed to many different projects including Yahoo! Search and Yahoo! Calendar.

Prior to working at Yahoo, I was a Senior Software Engineer at Scalix (now part of Xandros), where I spent a couple of years developing their web client. Prior to joining Scalix, I was a software engineer at easyplanet where I worked on a consumer VoIP application based on the OpenH323 library.

During my spare time, I like to run on trails, practice amateur astronomy, work on my hobby operating system — Simplix — enjoy some good wine and foods, and travel to exotic destinations with my beautiful wife.

In 2001, I obtained a Master’s degree in computer science from Supelec, a leading engineering institute in France.
