Michel Buffa

Associate Professor the computer engineering department of the University of Nice/France. Member of the Kewi research group at I3S lab, Ph.D. in Informatics and Computer Science.

I mainly teach web technologies at the University of Nice and object oriented programming but in the past I gave many different courses (Unix, C/C++, Open GL, etc.)

I have an old personal web page that is one of the oldest in the history of the web. It has been created in 1993, not updated since 1999; it contains links to WWW courses from 1994 ;-)
