Team 42 came to the Hackathon to build a Scality S3 Server-based collaboration tool. Its web-based interface enables administrators to set roles and rights for shared projects, and sends notifications by email and text when a shared task progresses, that is, when someone pushes something on S3 Server. They’ve had issues with other tools—that was their inspiration.
All three of the members of Team 42 came to the Silicon Valley from France to start-up the first U.S. branch of the Paris-based 42 in Fremont.
Henri Dumas completed a bachelor’s degree in law before joining 42. After one year at 42, he went to business school. He’s here in the Bay Area now for six months, doing an internship. He learned about this Hackathon when he was at a Scality bootcamp in Paris.
Antoine Bungert graduated from business school in Paris last year, then started 42 after working for 6 months in Africa. He’s excited to be one of the students selected to be in the first class of the U.S.-based 42.
Lou Guenier, who had to head to Paris, so is not in the photo, has been working for 42 for a couple of years. He holds the role of pedagogical director for the Fremont school.
