Julien Barbier is the CEO and co-founder of Holberton, a revolutionary new type of software engineering school that has no teachers, no lectures, and no up-front tuition. His innovative educational model is supported by tech leaders Jeff Weiner (executive chairman at LinkedIn), Jerry Yang (founder of Yahoo!), Solomon Hykes (founder of Docker), R&B singer Ne-Yo, and actor, producer, and social activist Priyanka Chopra. Being a father to his five-year-old son and three-year-old daughter has also informed Julien’s views on gender equality both in the world and our educational system. Inclusivity and equality are baked into the DNA of Holberton School with a blind admissions process and Income Share Agreements that allow anyone, regardless of financial ability, to attend the school. Previously, Julien was the head of marketing and community at Docker, arguably one of the fastest-growing products for software developers over the last few years, now heavily used by companies such as Google, Uber, Spotify, Yelp, eBay, PayPal, Microsoft, Amazon, and IBM. His innovative community approach is one of the key factors that led the company from a zero to more than a $1 billion valuation. Julien was listed on Vanity Fair’s Future Innovator Index 2018 and was the winner of the EdTech Leadership Award 2017 for School Leader. You can connect with Julien on Twitter: @julienbarbier42
