Carlos Eduardo Seo

My name is Carlos Eduardo Seo. I am a Software Engineer with 10 years of experience in the industry. I am currently an Advisory Software Engineer at IBM, working on the Power architecture toolchain, focused on the Golang compiler. My responsibilities are to enable Power processors on GNU/Linux and optimize compiler and runtime performance. Previously, I was a member of the GLIBC for Power team. Although I don’t formally work on GLIBC anymore, I try to keep a foot in that area, since it interests me. I am also the PAFLib maintainer.

As a software engineer, my main interests are in computer architecture, processor enablement and the Toolchain. I enjoy working on agile and open software development environments and tackling challenging problems. I am recognized as an innovator for my patent applications and contributions to open source software.

As a Product Manager at CIPHER, I created a product development culture with the focus on the user, prioritizing great UI design, usability and performance.

As the former lead of the IBM Advance Toolchain for PowerLinux, I successfully built an A-team while increasing greatly our efficiency. We delivered 23 releases of the product to 20 clients in 5 years, with a near-zero bug count per release. During this period, I filed 5 patent applications, published 4 technical papers and contributed 18 patches to open source software projects.

I previously worked in the telecom industry, as an engineer and researcher specialized in signaling networks and wireless network protocols. I had 3 academic papers published in that period.

I hold both a B.S. and a M.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the State University of Campinas (UNICAMP), Brazil.

I am also a musician and photographer, being a Getty Images contributor. In my spare time I like to travel around the world for photos, and play the piano and the guitar.

Another passion of mine is technology. I am an early adopter of tech and you will find a lot of reviews and writings about the newest gadgets in this website.

I care about projects in the following areas: arts and culture, education, science and technology. I currently back Khan Academy, the New York’s Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) and the São Paulo State Symphony Orchestra (OSESP). Previous donations and contributions include Ubuntu EdgeOmAudio and UCM/NASA’s Cities at Night project.
