- Software Engineer
Ruben can rightfully be called a full stack developer, with many years of experience. He knows a lot (a lot!) about many different techniques. He watches over the architecture of applications and does not accept half-baked solutions. He always makes his strong opinion heard.
Ruben studied computer science at the RU and previously embarked on the entrepreneurial path together with Marlon. In his spare time, he enjoys playing tabletop games and cycling through the beautiful surroundings of Nijmegen.
ntpd-rs is an implementation of NTP completely written in Rust, with a focus on exposing a minimal attack surface. In this blog post the process of implementing a new open-source version of the Network Time Protocol is explained.
The project originates from ISRG's Prossimo, as part of their mission to achieve memory safety for the Internet's most critical infrastructure. Prossimo funded the initial development of the NTP client and server, and NTS support. The NTP initiative page on Prossimo's website tells the story.
ntpd-rs is part of Project Pendulum.
Statime is an initiative of Tweede golf, a work-in-progress implementation of the Precision Time Protocol (PTP) in Rust.
High-precision timing is part of crucial networking infrastructure. With Statime we aim to provide a memory-safe alternative for existing implementations.
The first milestones of the project were kindly co-funded by the NLnet Foundation.
Statime is part of Project Pendulum.
