My name is Alexandru Laz─âr. I'm an engineer, and this is my little corner of the Internet.

What I do. I write the low-level code that makes various pieces of mission-critical equipment work and, occasionally, I lend a hand with designing some of the hardware, too. My focus is on kernel and OS development, security, and reliability engineering. I worked on things that help push packets in some of the world's largest datacenters, and on medical machinery that helps surgeons improve the quality of life for thousands of people around the world.

What else I do. I'm enough of a retrocomputing nerd that my age is frequently called into question. I can also annoy my neighbours by playing the drums. They appreciated the practice chanter even less, though, so I never learned to play the bagpipes.
