Two Decades in Linux & Embedded Systems
Hi, I'm a solo software consultant with over 20 years of experience in providing software solutions with focus on embedded systems. I have extensive experience in using C++, C, Python and Linux to create efficient and reliable software solutions for a wide range of applications, like IoT devices or industrial control systems.
What I do
- Consulting: I work closely with your team to understand your needs, design a robust software architecture that meets your requirements, and devise a plan to bring it into reality.
- Development: As a specialist in creating adept software solutions, I use modern C++ within embedded Linux systems to ensure efficiency and reliability in every line of code.
- Optimization: I help you optimize your existing code to improve both performance and resource usage, focusing on two important aspects. The first is runtime performance, which affects user experience. The second is development efficiency (speed and ease of development), which influences time to market and adaptability to future changes.
My Approach and What It Means to You
In essence, my methodology boils down to two fundamental words: communication and pragmatism.
Communication is the key to achieving project success. I'm committed to an open dialogue, ensuring that our objectives and strategies are aligned. This not only saves costs but also reduces the risk of creating something that deviates from your actual needs, sharpening our focus on the essential elements.
Pragmatism in development, from my perspective, involves finding a balance between simplicity and over-engineering. Avoiding excessive shortcuts is important; it prevents the creation of software that becomes a mystery and a challenge to maintain due to missing necessary abstractions. On the other hand, too many abstractions can lead to bloated code, increasing time and costs.
Over time, navigating through these extremes, I've developed an intuitive sense of what it means to be truly pragmatic in this field.
