MCTS - Windows Embedded CE 6.0 Developer
If it can run software, you can hack it.
Valter works at Toradex AG in Horw, Switzerland, developing BSPs and drivers. He spends most of his working time writing C/C++ code and trying to learn new things about Windows CE and IoT systems. When he's not putting bugs in his own code or trying to find them, he provides support for customers worldwide. He's a Windows CE and Windows Embedded Standard trainer and thinks that explain concepts to other people is the best way to check if you understood them clearly. He's trying to figure out what "Internet of Things" really mean and how to split the technical stuff from the marketing noise around this subject. He did many sessions and demo showing how to connect embedded devices to Azure and other cloud-based services. He wrote a book (in Italian) about the Raspberry Pi: "Raspberry Pi, guida all'uso". If he's not close to a PC or and embedded device, you may find him playing or watching basketball or traveling around the world with his wife, taking pictures that he'll proudly display on his blog posts.
