Tony van Eerd
Tony Van Eerd almost grew up to be an artist, but instead studied math and physics then stumbled into a career writing software. Which he has now been doing for well over 20 years. And hopefully doing it well for at least some of that. Most of that time has been in the graphics/video/film/broadcast industry, writing low level pixel++ and high level UI libraries. Lots and lots of UI, lots and lots of libraries. He now works at BlackBerry, stewarding the aesthetics of the BlackBerry APIs. He is also the company-wide "C++ guy" writing half of his code in emails and wiki pages.
