Who is this?

I’m Gilad Ben Yossef.

I’m a geek, hacker, programmer, entrepreneur, husband and father, in no particular order.

I love technology in general and programming in particular and especially Open Source. Linux on servers and embedded system is my specialty for many years now, lately joined by Android. I’m an active member of the Linux community, presented in several conferences and wrote several articles and papers on various technical issues. I also had the honor of co-authoring the 2nd edition of O’reilly “Building Embedded Linux Systems”.

These days I work as a Principal Software Architect in charge of network processors and multi-core CPUs at Mellanox, following the acquisition of EZChip Semiconductors. I am also the co-founder and previous CTO of Screenovate Technologies ltd. Before that me and my lovely wife ran a now defunct Open Source consulting business called Codefidence. I also worked for SGI, Kagoor Networks (sold to Juniper in 2004) and Gteko (sold to Microsoft in 2008).

On this personal site you can find some of my technical writings, as well as links to other sites I’m active in. You are also welcome to check out my Hebrew language blog, firstpost.org.

Have fun reading it, and if you feel like it, you are more then welcome to contact me.
