From microcontroller to mainframe

Even though I mostly concentrate on embedded Linux systems, I have also worked with small 8bit and 16bit microcontrollers running no OS at all, and although IBM mainframes aren’t exactly embedded systems I did Linux kernel development on them as well.

Free and Open Source Software
Free and Open Source Software is an important part of my daily business, be it paid projects like Linux kernel development at IBM or projects I work on in the little spare time I have. Some of those projects can be found under the FOSS menu, they include projects like RTEMS, RTAI, libmpc8xx and Wireshark.

Stagecraft
Stage lighting and related technologies always interested me, and under the Stagecraft menu entry there are several stagecraft-related projects I work on. Those projects are mostly communication protocol based like libraries and Wireshark dissectors for Art-Net, ACN and DMX.

Today I had the privilege to meetup with R1-Sjaak Lucassen. Most of you will probably not know R1-Sjaak, unless you’re a biker. Because if you are a biker, and most certainly if you are a Dutch biker, you should know R1-Sjaak. He made bike trips that dwarf most of our normal bike trips, including my [...]
