Hello and welcome to my homepage!

My name is Fotis Loukos and I'm a Ph.D. candidate at the Department of Informatics of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and a Master of Science in Computers, Telecommunications and Networks from the Department of Computer and Communications Engineering of the University of Thessaly.

I am a big Linux fan and my favorite distribution is Debian. I started using Linux at 1996. I still have the Wallnut Creek cdroms with slackware and the Linux Internet Archives by Yggdrasil!

My favorite programming language is C but I believe that there is no such thing as "the best programming language". I use perl a lot when I want to write a small script which may fetch something from the internet and parse it or java when I need to write a program with a nice GUI that will run on many different architectures. Assembly is my big love but unfortunatelly I don't use it a lot. I can program for the x86 and the SPARC architectures and I have used a lot of assembly for the AVR and PIC microcontrollers during the writing of my MSc thesis (porting TinyOS to the SmartIts platform).

I really like ancient Greek philosophy and especially the presocratic philosophers. Most probably I am biased since I am myself Greek but I believe that philosophy started in Greece.

If you search you can find me at many social networking sites, e.g. Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. I like most of them even if many times I find myself wasting valuable time!

You can find more about me, some programs I've written, my (not so frequently updated) blog and other stuff by navigating using the menu at the left side of the page.
