Geert Uytterhoeven became involved with Linux 2 decades ago, when he started hacking the Linux kernel to make it work better on his Amiga. This paved the way for a long string of contributions to Linux.
Geert may be most known as maintainer of Linux on the old m68k architecture, and as former maintainer of the Linux frame buffer device subsystem, but he has touched kernel code all over the place.
In 2013, Geert founded Glider bvba (http://glider.be/), to build upon the (embedded) Linux (kernel) expertise he gained while pursuing his passion for Linux, computers, and programming.
Previously he worked as a Software Engineer/Architect at Sony, and as a Researcher at K.U.Leuven, where he obtained a Ph.D. in Computer Science.
Geert spoke about the Linux Frame Buffer Device Subsystem at Linux Expo and Linux-Kongreß, and about Device Tree practices at Embedded Linux Conference.
