João joined our team at our Lyon office at the end of November 2023. After a double degree from ENSICAEN in France and Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Norte in Brazil, João started his professionnal career in Brazil, and then moved to France where he worked for Witekio and Alstom. Thanks to his past experiences, João brings relevant expertise in embedded Linux, and especially Yocto integration. And for João, joining Bootlin is actually come back, as he did one of his internships at Bootlin in 2020, during which he wrote and contributed to upstream U-Boot the support for the SquashFS filesystem.
Bastien joined our team at our Toulouse office at the beginning of January 2024. After graduating from INSA Lyon in 2016, Bastien spent a short time at Texas Instruments and then moved to Scalian, where he has been involved in numerous embedded Linux and Linux kernel projects, but also in VHDL development for FPGAs. Bastien is well-versed in build system management, having overseen the development of custom Linux firmwares based on Yocto, applied to platforms like iMX6 or Zynq Ultrascale+. Bastien will be helping our team handle more Linux kernel and low-level development projects for our customers.
Welcome João and Bastien!
