About Me

You should pretty much understand who I am by reading this.

The course of my life (curriculum vitae)

swapmesh.com (2012-2018) [DEAD]

Swapmesh was a social network I made just after turning 17. The original idea was to build a place where people could put small widgets of things they enjoy, and have a kind of hub where they have everything they love. It ended up being a social network where your personal page was called the “interface”, you were able to drag and drop content (status, link, post, images) on your interface.


I made it using HTML, CSS, javascript and PHP. Hosted it on a shared hosting plan, pushing files using FTP.

It had about 100 users. It was fun, I thought I was so cool. Spaghetti code, but it worked.

Version 2 (2014) [UNFINISHED]

I worked on a second version, with a nicer UI. I built a WYSIWYG editor in js, to let users write post with colors, bold, italic, code snippets, link and images. It was a little bit buggy.

jarvis console - chatbot before chatbots [DEAD]

To prevent having too many buttons, I decided to make a sort of console to let people navigate on the website, ask to perform actions (post something, send a message, find someone). Like a chatbot before chatbot. I was using RegEx, and thought it was so cool that I decided to do the same but for computer. I wanted to build an app to help automate

Japp (2015?) - Trying to solve unsolved CS problems [abandoned]

Too much thinking, not enough Object Oriented design experience and knowledge Too big project.

knowledge [FOREVER GOING]

Knowledge is not really a project, and is private. It is a collection of notes, cheatsheet, articles on a lot of different things I’ve studied through the years. As 2019, there is 43 directories and a total of 360 files. I didn’t push it on github to prevent copyright issues.

Quantasks.com (2016-still up in 2019) - the perfectionnist idiot

Prototype Beautiful code, properly designed, but some tricky unsolved problems

Quantasks was just a small part of a mastermind plan. Quantasks is a todo list that let you split tasks into minimal actionable tasks: quantasks (because quata are the smallest particles). The idea was to then learn how to split tasks into actions that I could implement, so I could then build a virtual assistant able to break down requests into actions it can take.

For some reason I kept it secret for 2 years, and showed it to a couple of people. I wanted to make a subscription plan and market it as a new productivity method, I started an instagram page where I posted motivational/productivity quotes. But I never did it, because I felt like it wasn’t good enough, it didn’t provide enough value to be able to ask for money.

Now, I realize that I should have known better. Keeping a project secret is dumb. Trying to launch a perfect product is dumb. I am a dummy dum.

What’s next ?

Idk man, survive I guess

Who am I ? just a bunch of facts about me

My name is Arthur Garreau (it’s written in giant up there), I study Computer Science, Electronics, Artificial Intelligence, Data… and I am French. (idk if someone really cares)

I wrote my first line of code when I was 12yo, but got serious about it when I was 15. I made a couple of interesting projects, but I shared a very few of them, because I didn’t want to share them, or I never finished them, or they were not really interesting, u kno wat im sayin.

I have a licence (french equivalent of a bachelor, but not really) in Electronics, Electrical Energy, and automatic.

I study computer science and electrical engineering at ESEO. I studied at the Pierre and Marie Curie University in Paris, and the University of Nantes.

I talk French, English, C, C++, PHP, Java, Javascript, SQL (MySQL, postgreSQl), bash, python (numpy, matplotlib), HTML & CSS. I enjoy Mathematics and AI. I know stuffs about Machine Learning and deep learning.

I like to build stuffs, I love memes, I play the piano.
