Hello fellow hackers<ref>http://www.catb.org/jargon/html/introduction.html</ref>, I'm Zach. I joined DMS in July (2014), and I'm currently involved in the following areas:
* Machine Shop * Metal Shop * Amateur Radio SIG (part of Electronics)
A short, woefully incomplete list of my interests:
* Computers (FreeBSD, Mac OS, DOS, CP/M, etc.) * Electronic projects of all kinds * Amateur radio (N0ZGO) * General aviation (PP-SEL, Instrument rated) * Welding/metalworking (Everlast PowerTIG 255EXT is my current toy)
I'm a proponent of open source, and I try to give back to the community with patches and donations when possible. I'm a fairly competent C programmer, so, if you've got a question, ask away!
I currently work for Maxim Integrated Products, more can be found at here
If you'd like to contact me, you can find me on the freenode irc servers as __sbrk.

CAM (implementation) software:
* PyCAM -- haven't used, but have heard good things * OpenSCAM looks very useful for simulation of your program
