Hello, my name is Filipe Laíns and I am an open source developer from Portugal.

I enjoy designing clean and correct solutions to software problems and I am interested in hardware design, analysis and reverse engineering, however I don't have any formal education in electrical engineering.

There are several languages I am proficient at but the main are C and Python.

Over the years, I've contributed to several open source projects and eventually gained maintainership of some of them. In addition to this, I have also authored a few popular projects.

You can find the full list on my Github Profile, but here are some of the most relevant projects I maintain:

Arch Linux
A popular Linux distribution, where I am a packager. You can find a list of the package I maintain on the package search page.
libratbag
A DBus daemon to configure input peripherals.
pypa/build
A Python package builder which implements PEP 517. The project is currently under the umbrella of the Python Packaging Authority.
openinput
A project that provides open source firmware, open hardware, and a open protocol, for input devices (eg. mice, keyboards, etc.).

And some of the most relevant projects I have contributed to:

Linux
Linux is one of the most popular operating system kernels. I have contributed, and actively review patches, to several device drivers in the USB HID subsystem.
Wireshark
Wireshark is the world’s foremost and widely-used network protocol analyzer. I have contributed the initial USB HID report parser code.
CPython
The reference implementation of the Python programming language. I am currently a member of the Python triage team and have contributed many miscelaneous fixes and improvements.
Meson
Meson is a very popular build system. I worked on support for the D language and improving introspection metadata.
