Jeff Atwood lives in Berkeley CA with his wife, two cats, and a whole lot of
computers. He was weaned as a software developer on various
implementations of Microsoft's BASIC in the 80's, starting with his first
microcomputer, the Texas Instruments TI-99/4a. He continued on the PC with
Visual Basic 3.0 and Windows 3.1 in the early 90's, although Jeff also spent
significant time writing Pascal code in the first versions of Delphi. He
considers himself a reasonably experienced Windows software developer with
a particular interest in the human side of software development.
Computers are fascinating machines, but they're mostly a reflection of the
people using them. In the art of software development, studying code isn't
enough: you also have to study the people behind the software. And Jeff is
definitely at the forefront of this.
