Being fascinated by computers and electronics since getting my first 386SX at age 13 and spent several years investigating the development world with GW-BASIC until my university, during which i continue developing as a freelance developer and advanced to the final during IBM Scholar Challenge 2002 with the software i developed, based on Embedded Linux.
