Tony Wasserka is a freelance software developer based in Berlin, Germany. He works on low-level software like operating systems (kernels and drivers alike) and firmware for embedded systems. His main interest is using strong type-safety and zero-cost abstractions to write software for resource-constrained and timing-sensitive applications with good performance with better robustness and correctness than with other approaches. His tool of choice for this is usually C++, with Rust being an increasingly viable alternative.
Tristan is an independent contractor and C++ enthusiast based in London. He’s particularly interested in standardisation and making C++ an easier language to use and teach. He can be found on Twitter @tristanbrindle and occasionally blogs about C++ at tristanbrindle.com.
Tyler Ang-Wanek has been developing software professionally for the past 3.5 years. He works as a senior developer at Axosoft, on the GitKraken team. His work primarily shifts among developing native node modules for use in GitKraken, architectural work for code and APIs around GitKraken, and developing new features for GitKraken. He is the creator of the node module Node Sentinel File Watcher (NSFW), a native file watcher written for GitKraken that has made its way into Atom and VSCode. One of his major accomplishments includes taking leadership of the open source native node module NodeGit. After much hard work on the NodeGit repo and within the community, Tyler joined the leadership group for LibGit2.
Udit Patidar works in the Developer Products Division of Intel, where he is a product manager for Intel software tools. He was previously a developer working on Intel compilers, focusing on OpenMP parallel programming model for technical and scientific computing workloads. He has extensive experience in high performance computing, both at Intel and previously. Udit holds an MBA in General Management from Cornell University, and a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Houston.
Vadims adventures in programming started with Basic on a 8 bit micro-computer with whopping 4KB of RAM when he was 10 year old in the mid-80s and continued with Pascal, C and, at the beginning of the 90s, discovery of C++, that he has been using since then. What started as a hobby, became a job when, after finishing PhD in mathematical physics in 2002, Vadim founded TT-Solutions company providing support for open source software and, in particular, wxWidgets. Almost 20 years, one marriage and three children later, Vadim still remains enthusiastic about programming in general and open source in particular and tries to contribute to other open source projects whenever possible, even if his primary focus remains on wxWidgets.
Victor Ciura is a Senior Software Engineer at CAPHYON and Technical Lead on the Advanced Installer team. For over a decade, he designed and implemented several core components and libraries of Advanced Installer such as: IIS, Repackager, OS virtualization and others.
He’s a regular guest at Computer Science Department of his Alma Mater, University of Craiova, where he gives student lectures & workshops on “Using C++STL for Competitive Programming and Software Development”.
Currently, he spends most of his time working with his team on improving and extending the repackaging and virtualization technologies in Advanced Installer, helping clients migrate their Win32 desktop apps to the Windows Store (AppX).
