I am a technologist with experience working with mobile 3G/4G telecommunications infrastructure, electronic equities trading systems, and satellite communications systems. I have worked on very low level aspects, such as designing circuit boards and writing firmware for FPGAs, DSPs, and embedded processors. I have also worked at the other end of the spectrum writing user-mode software in Linux and Windows.
The constant in my life is C++. I started learning C++ in 1996 and have been using it ever since! I’m currently working towards my Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering in the evenings while I work full time, my coursework focus is on VLSI design, both digital and analog.
My technical interests include, but are not limited to, the following:
- C++ software development on Linux/UNIX
- Computer networks and TCP/IP Networking
- Cellular technology and networks: GSM, UMTS, LTE
- Statistical modeling and applied math
- Erlang and functional programming in general
I’m interested in building things more than anything, and this is my notebook for jotting down ideas or streaming thoughts about technology that I encounter while trying to build systems. Hopefully some of my entries will be useful to someone out there!
