About

Introduction

My name is Zoltán Puskás and this site is my personal corner of the Internet. I have MSc degrees in Electrical Engineering and Biomedical Engineering from the Budapest University of Technology and Economics and did R&D mostly on embedded systems and medical instrumentation in the past decade. I have experience in the industries of telecommunications, automotive and medical nuclear imaging. Currently I’m exploring the field of big data and distributed computer systems.

In my free time I enjoy working on OSS and other projects, thus this site. My aim is to share information here that is novel, hard to find or otherwise might be of interest to others. I hope it will be useful to my readers and can serve not only as a reference, but also can contribute to the advancement and betterment of human welfare.
