q3k's portfolio of silly things

Hi there!

As you may have noticed, this is my homepage. The main reason behind its existence is to serve as a collection of information about me and my work - some people might call that a portfolio.
If you want to contact me, to ask about something or just to chat, you can use the contact information to the right.

career & experience

I am currently employed as a full-time software developer, but am free for occasional contract work - be it software/hardware development or security related. I have experience in the following fields:

  • Software Engineering (C, C++, Python)
  • Penetration testing and security analysis (various software stacks and network architectures)
  • Network software development (including protocol and architecture design)
  • Kernel and low-level development (x86, x86-64, ARM)
  • Modern OpenGL graphics programming (programmable pipeline, shadery goodness)
  • Software, hardware and network protocol reverse engineering (x86, ARM, JVM)
  • Digital electronics engineering (design and implementation, microcontrollers, system modules)
  • Linux and BSD server administration, network engineering, LAN and WAN-scale routing.

personal projects

Due to being permanently busy with „real” work, most of my personal projects are a never-ending story of work in progress and/or abandonment...

  • TAM3517 linux port - boardfile for the TAM3517 family of SoM
  • The q3kcopter, an overengineered (ARM9260 Linux SoC + Spartan6 FPGA) and obscenely overcomplicated quadrocopter (WIP, and needs a writeup...)
  • The hacklock, a Linux-powered embedded door lock mechanism for the Warsaw Hackerspace (WIP, will have a writeup...)
  • Cucumber, a hobby OS microkernel, a longterm project. It runs Lua! (WIP)
  • Rhubarb, the start of a OpenGL-bnased graphics framework, some day will be rewritten to support deferred lighting (WIP)
  • And a whole bunch of minor tools and proofs of concept...
