Who is Scott Penrose?

Scott is an expert software developer with over 30 years experience, specialising in education, automation and remote data.

My name is Scott Penrose and I live and work in Melbourne, Australia. You can find out more about me in Category Attributes and About.

My Consulting includes: Hardware integration (embedded systems); Tablet/Phone development (Android and iOS); System development and automation; Web development (servers, backend, database); Large scale integration projects and more. My expertise as a software architect is ideal for projects that cross disciplines, architectures/platforms, programming languages and more. See also Open Source Projects, Consulting and Hobbies.

My first job was working with 6800 embedded CPUs in the early 90s. During the development of our solar powered house in 2000 I knew that the only way to be safe and not damage the batteries would be to fully automate the power and lighting throughout. I have continued hardware hacking on a causal basis, building musical toys, helping with the design and building of a sophisticated glide computer and design and embedded coding for buoys to measure waves in ice in the Antarctic. Although my day job involves programming complicated CPUs, mostly under Linux, I have retained a passion of for simplicity and feel that the Arduino meets those requirements.

Scott's work with NIWA on Sea Ice has been published in Nature. He went to Scott base in Antarctica in November 2014 to test new set of equipment. Fire Fencing
