Welcome in my world
My name is Félix Desjardins and I am a student in tourism management, as well as a developer and a transport enthusiast.
TechnologiesI have always loved technology, I love to follow its evolution and be on the lookout for the latest news, and also to use my knowledge to provide applications for all.
TourismThis is the field where I study and where I am currently working in. I love being able to create experiences that make people happy.
TransportsSince I was young, I learned to take the train, the bus and the metro. This passion has stayed, as I continue to discover more about transportation all over the world.
What I am good at
Graphic designUsing my creativity and my knowledge, I am able to create a ton of visuals involving graphic design. I have worked on park maps, signage system and more.
GTFS - General Transit Feed SpecificationThanks to my projects, I have been able to develop a good skill with the GTFS specification, in analysis and compilation of raw data. This data is used by public transport companies around the world to share planned schedules and real time about their agency.
An overview of the public transportation network for several major Canadian cities
By combining open data from several public transit agencies across the country, Transit Tracker allows you to see several hundred or even several thousand vehicles on a single map or in the same list. This is my biggest project to date, in development since November 2018.
An open-source manager of links and QR codes for companies
This project was born from a lack of an easy and free solution to manage links and QR codes. LinksDB allows the management of links and QR codes, while keeping basic statistics on visits. The application is based on serverless technology, which allows rapid and free (or inexpensive) deployment.
A collaborative platform to find all the STM's "secret" trips
The STM publishes a static GTFS dataset containing the planned timetables for most of its lines, but industrial lines or schools are excluded. Using real-time data and the collaboration of several transport enthusiasts, it is possible to create a complete static game very quickly!
