Zephyr Ambassadors are individuals who are passionate about the RTOS, recognized for their expertise, and willing to help others learn about it and community. Successful ambassadors are people such as bloggers, influencers, evangelists who are already engaged with a Zephyr project in some way including contributing to forums, online groups, community events, etc.
If you would like an ambassador to speak at your event, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the conference, date and links.
Alexey Brodkin is an engineering manager at Synopsys.
Alexey Brodkin is an engineering manager at Synopsys, where he drives development of low-level run-time software for ARC processors. Alexey has been working with embedded systems for years starting from 8-bit MCUs and gradually shifting to high-performance multi-core 32- & 64-bit CPUs. He is the ARC architecture custodian at U-Boot bootloader, the co-maintainer of Linux kernel port for ARC, as well as a casual contributor to some other open source projects that he uses in his professional affairs. Today, with the increased complexity of deeply embedded systems, which require the use of more complicated software, Alexey applies his knowledge and experience with software tools and Linux development to the Zephyr RTOS.

Carles is a firmware developer at Nordic Semiconductor.
Carles has been a firmware developer at several hardware, semiconductor and software companies for over 20 years, with a focus on microcontrollers. For the last 10 years he has worked at Nordic Semiconductor, where he was part of the team that brought to market Nordic’s first ever Bluetooth Low Energy chip, and has remained a member of the software development team since. During this time at Nordic he has also co-authored a book on Bluetooth LE and contributed to different areas of the software development effort, driving an internal push to contribute an existing proprietary Bluetooth LE Controller implementation as an open source component to the Zephyr project. With the controller now part of the Zephyr codebase, he widened his focus beyond Bluetooth Low Energy, helping ensure that Zephyr becomes the best possible open source all-purpose RTOS available.

Locus Origin Technologies, LLC.
Jonathan Cartrette is a Principal Consultant at Locus Origin Technologies, LLC.
Jonathan Cartrette, Principal, Locus Origin Technologies, LLC. has over fifteen years of pragmatic, hands on IoT development and deployment experience ‘since before we called it that’, most recently serving as Director of Technology, IoT Systems and principal architect at a major manufacturer of smart home and commercial building products. Cartrette has worked on a wide variety of evolving full-stack platform technologies, starting from an embedded EE and firmware emphasis, on to device and platform security strategies for large-scale offline networked commercial lighting systems. His expertise in solving scale problems comes from immersion in real-world deployment challenges including in-field and back office technical customer services positions, as well as product management and strategic leadership with functional market channel expertise. “Locus Origin is an independent venture where I want to seek out category-straddling application ‘hybrids’ likely to evolve in our accelerated innovation economy,” Cartrette said. “The sustainability of product developments begun on Zephyr OS will be a key aspect of client recommendations made by my firm because a connected product must prepare to maintain forward velocity for cybersecurity patching at minimum from well before launch.”
