Speaker Interview: Marek Vasut

Q: Could you please introduce yourself and tell us a little about your background?

A: Hi! I'm Marek Vasut and I work as a contractor for some years already, mostly for DENX S.E. GmbH in Germany. I do U-Boot/Linux/OpenEmbeeded work for living and I actively participate in those projects even outside of my work. I play around with FPGAs in my free time a lot, but it's nothing big and professional :) I'd love to talk about any of these things to whoever is interested, so please do come and talk to me anytime!

Speaker Interview: Peter Czanik

Q: Could you please introduce yourself and tell us a little about your background?

A: I am a system engineer working as community manager at Balabit, the company behind the syslog-ng logging daemon. I help distributions maintain the syslog-ng package, follow bug trackers, help syslog-ng users and talk regularly at conferences (SCALE, FOSDEM, Libre Software Meeting, LOADays, and so on). In my limited free time I am interested in non-x86 architectures, and work on one of my PPC or ARM machines.
