Hi, I’m Lukasz Skalski and I live in Gdansk (Poland). I’m open source enthusiast and guy who lives and breathes all things related to IT (especially Linux and embedded systems). While you are here, I hope you can find something interesting. Please feel free to contact me.
Who am I
My name is Lukasz Skalski. I was born in 1988. I spent my whole childhood in a small, but very charming town – Izbica Kujawska. In 2008, I graduated from the Complex of Electronic Schools in Wloclawek. Then I started studying at Gdansk University of Technology – Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications and Informatics (major: Computer Electronic Systems). In 2012, I was awarded a title of Electronics Engineer. My thesis was Bioimpedance Measurements. The two publications below are the results of my work (I am one of the authors of these texts):
“Monitoring of a bathing person” (published in Journal of Medical Imaging and Health Informatics)
“Detection of person presence and its activity in the bathtub” (XV International Conference on Electrical Bio-Impedance – ICEBI)
Furthermore in 2012, I published my first book about Linux for embedded systems – “Linux. Podstawy i aplikacje dla systemów embedded” as a result of my cooperation with Wydawnictwo BTC. The book is a guide on hardware (GPIO, I2C, 1-Wire, RS232, etc.) and software (Linux kernel, u-boot bootloader) aspects of using Linux on ARM architecture.
In 2013, I gained a Master’s Degree. You can find more info about my Master’s Degree Thesis here – Virtual Impedance Meter. Since graduation I’ve worked as a (Junior, Mid and Senior) Software Engineer at Samsung Electronics (Samsung R&D Institute Poland). In 2017, I started my own business – Skalski Embedded Technologies – to pursue the work and projects I love.
What about my hobby? I’m interested in everything, but I don’t have too much time to fulfill all my plans, projects, etc. I spend all my free time on designing various devices with small microcontrollers and creating software. My particular interest is Linux for embedded systems, open-source software and hardware-software interfaces. You can find some of my hobby projects in this blog. Character traits? Stubborn and tenacious in achieving my goals.
This is only a brief summary of myself. If you are interested in getting to know me better (my publications, work experience, awards, etc.) please visit my Resume page. Please feel free to contact me.
