Hey there! Welcome to my little corner of the internet! I am an Open source entusiast and I like to tinker with Embedded Operating Systems. This blog is a mixture of tutorials, experience, findings from experiments and discussions about the projects that I do. I Currently work with RTEMS[] as a Student Developer, for those who're confused what 'student developer' means, It's quite simple, I'm sometimes a developer and contribute code but mostly a student and learn a lot from the very experienced and helpful community ;-). If you'd like to connect with me, don't hesitate to choose any of the options at the top. I'm always up for some project discussions, experiments and feedback.
