About the PTP guy


Hello, I'm Wojciech Owczarek, the PTP guy. This site was started as a platform to spread knowledge about the Precision Time Protocol and one of its implementations, PTPd, that I develop.

About me?

Self-made time nut, network engineer / architect / R&D guy and wannabe programmer based in London, United Kingdom. Old-school Unix user, no-nonsense technologist if slightly conservative in his views on IT. Polish by birth, Irish by choice and by association. Does not suffer fools gladly. Punk rock, beer and IEEE 1588.
