A brief introduction

I’m Victor Guyard, a French-American student whose favorite food is Escalope de veau milanaise (I don’t know the English name). My favorite things to do are skiing (slalom skiing specifically but powder is close behind), surfing (w/ wetsuit because I haven’t been to warm enough spots), learning languages, reading, and programming!

I have lived half my life in France, and the other in the US. Currently I am in Atlanta, GA, studying Computer Science at Georgia Tech. I have been programming since I was 13/14 (thank you Khan Academy). I have lots of experience in Frontend development (even jQuery and AngularJS! —> “old stuff” y’a know), but have been branching out to other domains, such as desktop apps with Rust, Java (school), PHP (internships & jobs), Python (Machine learning and web scraping - a must) and a few other things.

When I am not programming or doing assignments, I enjoy reading or studying a language. When I do want to continue staring at a screen during a break, I’ll usually look up videos about Frontend development, History and Geopolitics/Conflicts around the world.

Currently, I’m learning Korean, but I’d like to get back into Italian, and maybe later Spanish, but that’ll easier to pick up again.



Here are some key bullet points that I’ll format as questions that I’ve been asked (They have never been asked)

What do you hate most about frontend development?

Styling. CSS is hard. Tailwind flickers. UI libraries are too limiting. SCSS is the best solution so far, while using tailwind in dev and then copying the code over to SCSS files.

As of November 30th, 2023, I have worked a lot with Tailwind for a startup I helped develop (Nutrivend). There, using Tailwind was very enjoyable, as it made it easy for anyone (especially those unfamiliar with CSS) to quickly make good enough designs. I now recommend it.

However, my personal website is fully made with SCSS, and will stay that way, as I do not feel the need to change the styles. I did bite the bullet of being confused in my own .scss files and my classnames, but I am happy with the design and have no need to redoing everything in TailwindCSS.


Yarn/NPM/pnpm?

Yarn pnpm.


Why Rust?

Wannabe low-level guy. C++ is hard. Tauri > Electron. I <3 Tauri.


What font do you like the most?

Jetbrains Mono

// Just look at this beauty
const makeLoadingFaster = (braincells: number) => {
  if (braincells < 100) {
    return downloadMoarRam();
  }
};
# Just look at this beauty
def posOrNeg(number: int) -> str:
  if number > 0:
    return "Positive"
  return "Negative"

What tech stack does this website use?

This was an opportunity to experiment with Astro. More on the tech stack can be found on the project page that I wrote about this website.


Omg can I meet you in person?

I guess? I walk around Georgia Tech’s campus a lot, so either say hi there, DM me on whatever, or just shoot me an email.
