Working as a software engineer, in both contract and permanent roles, since 1987 but with an interest in computers since the 1970s I have mostly worked designing, developing, maintaining, researching, training & testing in the embedded & safety critical industries including:
Flight Simulation (PL/M-86/286/489, C, FORTRAN, Assembler)
Telecommunications & Cable TV (C++, C, Pascal)
Defense (C, C++, Corel-66, FORTRAN, BASIC)
Avionics (Java, C, XML, XSL, CSS, HTML, Test Scripting, Python, Assembler, Test Scripting)
Sonar (Python, C, Pascal, Delphi, PL/M-286, DSP)
Rail Infrastructure (C, Assembler)
Oil & Gas (Python, Jupyter, C, C++, VB6, Assembler)
I am familiar with target & development systems ranging from those with no OS (bare metal), through those that need to be booted from paper tape, desktop machines and mainframes - from single chips to pipelines & clusters with 100s of processors.
I am an occasional conference attendee at PyConUK & EuroPython.
