Since 1993, Robert Berger gathered practical and managerial experience in software design and development for embedded systems with and without hard real-time requirements.

Since the beginning of the 21st century, he has used GNU/Linux on desktop and server class machines, but mainly for embedded practices (automotive, industrial control, robotics, telecoms, consumer electronics, etc.). Robert regularly attends international events such as "Embedded World", "Embedded Software Engineering Congress", "Embedded Systems Conference", and "Embedded Linux Conference" as an expert and lecturer. His speciality is mainly training, but also consulting (in German or English) worldwide. Robert's expertise ranges from the smallest real-time systems (FreeRTOS) to set-ups with multiple processors/cores and embedded GNU/Linux (user-, kernel-space, device drivers, hardware interfacing, debugging, multi-core, Yocto Project) with a focus on free and open source software. Robert is a globe-trotter. He is CEO & Embedded Software Specialist at Reliable Embedded Systems which is based in St. Barbara, Austria, and when not travelling, lives with his family in Athens, Greece.
