Arnaud Coomans

Arnaud Coomans is a software engineer and a social and mobile applications developer. And one with a healthy dose of flair. His biggest coup took place in 2013 when he managed to reverse engineer Instagram as part of his "Upstagram" project. This hack allowed him to post live pictures on the social network while flying over Paris in a small house inspired by the animated movie Up. Shortly after this hack, he ended up joining Facebook, where he worked on Instagram for iOS and developed the Instagram Apple Watch application. Arnaud now manages a mobile infrastructure team at Instagram in New York.
