Jens Kuhner works for Vallon GmbH in Germany as a principal software developer developing metal detectors and ferrous locators. He creates software for data acquisition and evaluation using the .NET Framework and Compact Framework. Since this software must be incorporated closely with the detectors hardware, an interest in embedded systems was only natural. Jens has been involved with the .NET Micro Framework from the very start, when he saw it presented at MEDC Europe. Since then, he's been an active beta tester of the technology and a regular contributor to Micro Framework forums.
