I have been working with embedded systems for over 30 years - completed my BSEE in 1989. I specialize in embedded systems software design and implementation, including linux-based systems. In 2001 I started my own consulting/contracting firm, High Impact Services, Inc. I have provided solutions to Medical, Automotive, Defense, Consumer and Manufacturing organizations. I have developed custom training for clients on topics such as Embedded Systems Programming, Testing Embedded Systems Software, Safety Analysis for Small Embedded Systems. I have spoken at the Embedded Systems Conference, the International System Safety Conference and the Software Test Automation Conference. I have published four articles in various trade magazine (see https://www.highimpactservices.com/resources/publications-and-presentations/ for specifics). Here is an article I recently self-published on a recent embedded linux project: https://www.highimpactservices.com/simple-real-time-scheduler-for-embedded-linux/.
