Hello, my name is Nicolai Shlapunov.
I got my first computer and started studying Basic when I was 10 years old. I have been interested in technology ever since then. Several year later being a 9-grade student I studied x86 assembler and wrote my first programs for MS-DOS. I graduated from Minsk Radioengineering College in Microelectronics as well as received both my Bachelor (Software Engineering) and Master of Science degrees from Belarusian State University of Informatics and Radioelectronics.
I have more than 12 years of work experience in software engineering. I worked 10 years for a company producing gambling equipment (slot machines, Jack Pot systems, etc.), and in 2016 I took a decision to move to the United States - a birthplace of almost all hi-tech technologies. Here in the US I have been working for 2 years in medical device production industry. I continuously work on staying well informed of new technologies available. Full of new ideas I also have a lot of projects of my own, starting from small device development to home improvement. In my spare time (besides enjoying activities with my family, my wife Olga and children Nikita and Michael) I invent various things like this DevBoy project.
In the future I plan to create various add-ons to DevBoy (for instance, a oscilloscope), as well as miscellaneous open hardware modules for different projects, and various open source DevCore software libraries. I hope a large DevBoy community will be established, and I would be very happy to welcome you.
