My name is Benjamin Mezger1, and I am one of the countless software engineers lost in a world of code and numbers. I have worked with a diverse number of technologies – from operating system development to web development. This experience with several computing abstractions has taught me how to quickly adapt, learn and contribute to different project environments. I have an interest in backend development, computer architecture, and operating systems.
I am doing my Master’s degree at the University of Vale do Itajaí, investigating fault-tolerant software at the operating system level on RISC-V architectures.
I tend to reflect when asked, “where are you from” because it’s a long and confusing story. But here is a TL;DR: I was born in Milan, I have Brazillian, Dutch, and German citizenship, but I’m not Italian due to Jus Sanguinis. I moved and lived in Italy, Portugal, United Kingdom, Channel Islands, The Netherlands, and Brazil.
You can call me Ben too! ↩︎
