Björn Fahller is a senior developer at Net Insight, and has been developing software for a living since 1994, mostly embedded programming for communications devices. Björn learned C++ from usenet and the ARM (Annotated Reference Manual) which was the standard before there was a standard. On a hobby basis, Björn likes to find silly solutions to non-problems and to explore effects of programming constructs. Outside of programming, Björn is a member of a small group thet brews beer together, and is also a member of a volunteer organization of aviators who help with things like search and rescue operations, forest fire monitoring, and storm damage assessment.
Björn works for Net Insight, where he wears many hats, including mentor trainer, troubleshooter, networking protocol designer, software architect, and programmer, and he is continuously pushing the codebase to increasingly modern C++. Programming has been his full-time profession since graduating from University in 1994, mostly writing embedded software for networking equipment. Björn first experienced programming when home computers be came popular in the early 80s, and it quickly became a permanent interest of his.
Occasionally Björn has been seen tinkering with unorthodox software constructs, pondering “what can be done with this?” He lives in Stockholm.
