Sean has worked on firmware various embedded Linux platforms, ranging from the chumby One to the Novena open-source laptop. He specializes in drivers and low-level programming, occasionally reaching for an oscilloscope probe or a soldering iron. He also works with factories to make products repeatable. This includes figuring out how to load code into newly-built hardware, and how to verify that hardware has been correctly assembled.
He occasionally finds himself thinking that C is a language that is too high-level, but most of the time it is exactly what is needed.
Lately, he has found an interest in very low-power systems, particularly mesh networking.
In his spare time, Sean paddles around Singapore in an outrigger canoe.
