Hi, my name is Kobus

I am a passionate engineer who loves working on electronics, programming, and building intelligent systems. On this website you can find out more about what I do, as well as a blog where I sometimes write about some of the more interesting things that I’m working on.

I enjoy working on challenging electronics and programming projects (bonus points if it involves both). My interests include just about anything that runs on electricity. I’m a keen Linux user and a firm believer in the open-source philosophy.

I want to make an impact by building things that can help other people, even if it is something small. I try to share as many of my work as possible and I’m always willing to lend a helping hand.

In my free time I enjoy working on various projects with the aim of always learning something new. I’m slowly building myself an electronics lab and I’m already the owner of a (small) server homelab where I maintain multiple projects that I use on a daily basis.

Feel free to get in touch with me using any of the platforms listed on this website, I’d love to hear your feedback.
