- Backend developer
Yes really, a second Marlon. And a very special one at that. Marlon likes a challenge. He functions best in a close-knit team where the bar is set high. Collaboration is very important to him and he wants to continue to develop in this area. He also wants to deepen his knowledge on a technical level.
For the optimal gaming experience, he has a PC couch gaming setup at home via a Raspberry Pi; but he is not behind it 24/7. He also enjoys going to festivals, traveling and playing bass guitar.
If one person at Tweede golf is a Rustacean, it’s definitely Wouter. Whether it’s about web, embedded, or even games: he tried it. And probably not just tried it, but prototyped, created, documented, presented, and nailed it. Just take a look at Wouter’s GitHub page. He’s also engaged in the Rust community as an organizer of RustFest, member of the Dutch Rust foundation, and as maintainer of several open-source crates. He believes that Rust is well on its way to perfection.
ntpd-rs is an open-source implementation of the Network Time Protocol completely written in Rust, with a focus on exposing a minimal attack surface. This video explains how ntpd-rs brings NTP into the modern era.
The project was initially funded by ISRG's Prossimo, as part of their mission to achieve memory safety for the Internet's most critical infrastructure. The NTP initiative page on Prossimo's website tells the story.
Statime is an initiative of Tweede golf, an open-source implementation of the Precision Time Protocol (PTP) in Rust.
High-precision timing is part of crucial networking infrastructure. With Statime we provide a memory-safe alternative for existing implementations.
The first milestones of the project were kindly co-funded by the NLnet Foundation.
