Kevin Boone has been developing software since the days 16 KB was a RAM upgrade. By the time a MB was starting to feel cramped, he'd worked on projects ranging in scale from heart pacemakers to oil platforms, and was teaching Software Engineering to other people. He earned his PhD at around the time an MB was an only modest memory size for a PDA. These days, Kevin spends most of his time working on server applications that struggle to fit into a GB; nevertheless, he maintains and contributes to a number of open source projects associated with embedded Linux and Android. On those rare occasions when he isn't slumped in front of a computer screen, Kevin enjoys playing the piano, outdoor sports, and being a dad.
Gergely Gati began programming in the mid-eighties on a Commodore 16. One of his first publicly available work was the CP4, a C=+4 emulator for Amiga, written in 90 percent assembly. Over the last ten years, he has gained experience in the embedded communication domain, especially in safety critical vehicle network systems. AUTOSAR is a CAR-OEM-supported open standard, which intended to be an answer to the increasing complexity of in-car networks. Gati played the main role in creating one of the first experimental AUTOSAR 2.1 applications. In his spare time, he works on mobile apps for Java and Android phones. His most popular app is Weather—weather.midlets.eu—which runs on basic Nokia phones to advanced smartphones.
