Blog posts and open-source work

Henk is our embedded Rust expert. He has worked on IoT products like an industrial tracking sensor and a heart rate monitoring device for Glanum Medical. He started at TG as a back-end developer, but his heart was always in embedded. The more he could tinker, the better.

It has proven a challenge to satiate Henk's thirst for knowledge and so now, he does what many curious people aspire to do: he teaches, for example workshops on (embedded) Rust. Currently Henk is developing and teaching Rust 101, an open-source university course to introduce the language to students of Computer Science.

It's a wonder Henk has any spare time, having chosen to combine his newfound teaching career and his embedded developer job with going back to school himself. He likes to ride his motorcycle when he can, or tinker on it when he can´t (he's recently made a plan on how to have at least one piece of Rust software running on his bike...). When he's done teaching himself, or us, or our clients, he somehow has heaps of energy left for his kids too.

And whenever he has trouble sleeping? Henk enjoys reading articles about Rust, as many as he can find.

In 2009 Rust was a new language. In 2022 that isn't true anymore. Nor does Rust have anything to prove. It's made it to the Linux Kernel, and Microsoft have dubbed it "the Industry’s Best Chance at Safe Systems Programming".
Welcome to the age of communication. It's 2021 and technology has come a long way. People, large machines and small devices communicate more intensively than ever before, and many technologies to enable them to do so have been developed. Some of those technologies use physical pathways like fibreglass to reach their receivers, others use radio signals to send messages. It's these wireless communication technologies that spark the imagination the most.
Rust is nice for a lot of things. At Tweede golf we've been using the language primarily for high-performance web applications. But that's not all Rust can do. Rust can be used to write embedded applications as well.
