The Story

My name is Leon Anavi and I am a software engineer. I am passionate about various open source technologies and you might know me from FOSDEM, ELCE, OpenFest, TuxCon or other open source events. I also maintain a YouTube channel and unfashionable old style personal blog where I publish geek videos and tutorials for programming and do it yourself (DIY) devices. I have been a proud Raspberry Pi owner since 2011 and I still enjoy experimenting with the new versions of the board in my spare time.

I have been fascinated by open source for very long time. I have huge experiece with open source software but making hardware is completely different story. In 2016 I started my new exciting journey in the world of the open source hardware. With some help from faithful friends I stared designing hobby add-on boards for Raspberry Pi. My goal is to create open source hardware with free and open source only therefore I use KiCAD. My first hardware prototypes were printed by OSH Park. Shortly after that I decided that I want to do the manufacturing locally in my hometown. Since January 2017 all boards with the brand ANAVI are manufactured here and they proudly wear the sign "Made in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, EU".

Over the years as a software engineer I learned that the major difference between a circuit board and a stone is the software. Without proper drivers and software support any circuit board is useless. My goal is to make developer friendly hardware by providing software support and documentaion with the exact steps how to use it. Suggestion, recommendations and GitHub pull requests are always welcome!
