Hi everyone, I'm Julian (@blitz) 👋. I'm a low-level Rust and C++ developer with 10+ years of experience. I've worked on hypervisors, firmware code, operating systems including microkernels, drivers, and more. In the dark past, I also enjoyed writing Common Lisp.

I have a blog about weird x86 details (and other things that interest me). I co-host the syslog podcast about operating system topics (but it's sleeping right now). I occasionally talk at FOSDEM (1, 2).

Lately, I enjoy building systems with Nix and help with bringing UEFI Secure Boot to NixOS.

I'm happy to collaborate on anything regarding operating systems, Rust, RISC-V, ... I'm eager to learn about quality software engineering and the social side of engineering.

If you want to chat with me, ping me on:
