Hans Passant
I've developed control systems used in industrial automation for the past 20 years, mostly used in glass, steel and aluminum manufacturing and processing.  If you live in the Americas, you'll use a product made with my software every day.  Ranging from the glass in your windows and doors, the window in your oven range, the rearview mirror in your car, the perforations in sanitary paper, the top of your soda can and the wings of a Boeing 747.  And your kitchen sink.  Automation demands almost military specs with time-between-boots measured in months and utmost regard to safety.  I specialize in real-time programming, communication protocols, optimization algorithms, JIT manufacturing system design, database design and statistical analysis.
