James Gosling received a BSc in Computer Science from the
University of Calgary
Canada in 1977. He received a PhD in Computer Science
from Carnegie-Mellon University
1983. The title of his thesis was "The Algebraic Manipulation of Constraints".
He is currently a VP & Fellow at Sun Microsystems
He has built satellite data acquisition systems, a multiprocessor version of Unix,
several compilers, mail systems and window managers. He has also built a WYSIWYG
text editor, a constraint based drawing editor and a text editor called `Emacs'
for Unix systems. At Sun his early activity was as lead engineer of the NeWS
window system. He did the original design of the Java programming language
and implemented its original compiler and virtual machine.
He has recently been a contributor to the Real-Time Specification for Java
and most recently was a researcher at Sun labs
where his primary interest was software development
tools. He is now the Chief Technology Officer of Sun's Developer Products group.
Sun's Executive Vice President for Software, Rich Green, is responsible for the overall operational leadership
of Sun's software division, which has delivered some of the computer industry's most innovative technologies
and business models. Mr. Green oversees the Solaris Enterprise System, including the Solaris Operating System,
the Java Enterprise System suites, N1 management software, Sun Studio and Java Studio developer tools.
In addition, he leads a variety of industry-standards efforts and open source communities.
As Sun's chief Java advocate, Green played an essential role in the company's negotiations
leading to its landmark $1.6 billion settlement and 10-year collaboration agreement with Microsoft.
Green also spearheaded the development of such critical technological advancements
as Java Studio Creator and was instrumental in driving adoption for Sun's Java Virtual Machine software.
Previously, Green served as vice president and general manager of the Solaris products organization.
Sun Senior Staff Engineer Tor Norbye is responsible for the NetBeans Ruby support.
Before that he worked on Java Studio Creator's visual page designer.
