I am nexos, an open source hobbyist software developer. Here are my coding interests:

- Really, anything low level

- RISC-V assembly

- The Unix shell

- UEFI and ACPI

- Memory manager and scheduler design (implementation, well that is coming soon)

- Fast algorithms

- Unix

- Operating systems

I am currently working on NexNix, a Unix like operating system. It will only work on UEFI systems, and will work on x86_64, AArch64, and RISC-V 64.

My software philosophy is keep it simple. Everything should be made with very little, until more is needed. To quote Einstein: "Everything should be as simple as possible, but not simpler" Also, speed is very important to me. Software is slow nowadays, and people just say "modern CPUs make up for that", which is only so true.

My current very attainable aspiration is to write a heap manager to replace old dlmalloc. I really want to try to make it slab-esque, which should be interesting. Also, I plan on working on EDK2, and perhaps developing my own lightweight UEFI implementation. I definitely am going to write my own ACPI implemtation for my OS.
