About the Author

Gert Boddaert
Technical Lead rtos.be
Belgium Belgium
Gert Boddaert is an experienced embedded software architect and driver developer who worked for companies such as Agfa Gevaert, KBC, Xircom, Intel, Niko, (Thomson) Technicolor, Punch Powertrain, Fifthplay, Cisco and Barco. For more obscure details, please take a look at his LinkedIn profile. Anyway, he started out as a Commercial Engineer – option “Management Informatics”, but was converted to the code-for-food religion by sheer luck. After writing higher level software for a few years, he descended to the lower levels of software, and eventually landed on the bottom of embedded hell… and apparently still likes it down there.
 
His favourite motto: “Think hard, experiment and prototype, think again, write (easy and maintainable) code”,
 
favourite quote: “If you think it’s expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur.” – by Red Adair,
