About the author
I started to build ImSmart when I saw that there was no flexible tool to harness the full power of IFTTT and be able to extend automation to what it should be.
My professional life has been devoted to building tools that can be expanded and that have few limitations. In a sense I always built tools to automate my work
or the work of others. Make tools and applications that save time and money is what I do best. I'll do what I can so you do not lose time with repetitive stuff.
My job today is focused on enterprise architecture in a software company.
Before my current job, I was busy for 15 years building the first Internet provider in my hometown (Quebec City). I built different applications (ecommerce platform, RADIUS-based invoice manager, internal time sheets and many others) as well as building and maintaining the architecture.
Before that, I tried a bunch of different things on my Vic-20,
128 and Atari ST.
I hope you find ImSmart helpful.
