Greetings everyone! :facepunch: I’m Eliot, proudly serving as the Chief Technology Officer at AnchorLess.

  • Where I come from: I come from Paris, the city of all the possibilities where I grew up with my Family for as long as I can remember.
  • Where I live now: I’m now living in Alcantara, a pleasant small neighbourhood of Lisboa. I moved here at the same time as the rest of the AnchorLess team.
