About Julien Barbier
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 upfront tuition. His innovative educational model is supported by tech leaders Jeff Weiner (Executive Chairman at LinkedIn), Jerry Yang (founder of Yahoo!), and Solomon Hykes (founder of Docker), as well as R&B singer Ne-Yo and actor, producer, and social activist Priyanka Chopra.
Being a father to his 5-year-old son and 3-year-old daughter has also informed Julien’s views on gender equality both in the world and in 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, IBM, etc… His innovative approach to community has been one of the key factors that led the company from a $0 to a $1B+ valuation.
Julien has been listed on Vanity Fair’s Future Innovator Index 2018 and was the winner of the EdTech Leadership Award 2017 for School Leader.
