JNode is a Java New Operating System Design Effort. The goal is to get an simple to use and install Java operating system for personal use. Any java application should run on it, fast & secure!
I'm member of the JNode-Core team and I'm developing on the L1A optimizing bytecode to x86 compiler.
GNU Classpath
GNU Classpath is a GNU project to create free core class libraries for use with virtual machines and compilers for the java programming language.
I'm website editor of the project.
IIOP.NET is ELCA's opensource implementation of a .NET remoting channel for the IIOP (CORBA) protocol, which allows .NET to provide and access remote objects to other IIOP-based systems (like Java RMI/IIOP)
I supervised the project and wrote tutorials, documentation, and articles.
ELCA's Lean Extensible Architectural Framework for .NET is a framework to provide the necessary tools fast development of n-tier applications.
I designed and implemented the security and logging infrastructure in the framework, and took part in the development of various other parts the framework; I supervised many internships; used the experience acquired for teaching, presentations, and consulting.
Jaos is a Java VM for the Aos system. It is designed to allow language interoperability between Oberon and Java.
I designed and wrote the VM core including loader, linker, one pattern-expansion compiler, one optimizing compiler, and implemented the native methods to bind the Java classes to the underlying Bluebottle-OS.
Paco is an Active Oberon Compiler using active objects (one per scope) to concurrently parse and compile an Active Oberon module.
I wrote the whole compiler front-end and a back-end for Intel processors
Active Oberon Language
The Active Oberon Language is an extension of the Oberon language designed to add active objects (and thus concurrency) in the language. Interfaces are also added to allow modeling of software components.
I co-designed the language and implemented it in the ETH OP2 and Paco Compilers.
Oberon and Native Oberon
The Oberon System is a modern research and teaching operating system.
Project member; maintenance of the compiler, and development of a few drivers.
Hostess is an open source test-suite for Oberon Language Compilers.
Project initiator; I wrote part of the tests and helped design the schedule description format.
Active Oberon.NET
Active Oberon.NET is a port of the Active Oberon language for the .NET platform
Helped to design the mapping of Active Oberon to the CLR.
The Joint Modular Languages Conference 2000 took place in Zurich.
I was the logistic-chairman of the conference.
XOberon is a real-time operating system created at ETH by the Institute of Robotics
I integrated the TCP/IP stack into the system and implemented many distributed services on top of it.
Hybrid III
ETH project to create a car with hybrid engine.
I worked on the software used to control the car operation, in particular to automate the optimal scheduling of the sensor polling.
Cuntrast '94
Cuntrast '94 is the Swiss scout movement's jamboree that took place in july 1994 with over 21'000 participants.
I was co-responsible for the organization and direction of  two restaurants (about 300 places) and for the 18 voluntary workers.
