About me

I'm Patrik Fimml, a Computer Engineering student at Vienna University of Technology, and here's some random stuff I decided to put on the web. You can reach me at patrik@fimml.at (also using encrypted mail).


Anything close to the hardware-software boundary, such as systems programming and embedded systems engineering. How to break complex systems into simple components.

Non-exhaustive list of software I wrote. Since there is so much PHP, I feel obliged to say non-representative as well.
