Kate Gregory is in her fourth decade of being paid to program. Her firm, Gregory Consulting Limited, is based in rural Ontario and helps clients adopt new technologies and adjust to the changing business environment. Current work makes heavy use of .NET and Visual C++ along with SharePoint and both web and client development, especially for Windows 7. Managing, mentoring, technical writing, and technical speaking occupy much of her time, but she still writes code every week.
Kate is the author of over a dozen books and speaks at DevTeach, TechEd (USA, Europe, Africa), and TechDays, among others. Kate is a C++ MVP, a founding sponsor of the Toronto .NET Users Group, the founder of the East of Toronto .NET Users group, a member of the INETA speakers bureau, and a member of adjunct faculty at Trent University in Peterborough. Since January 2002 she has been Microsoft Regional Director for Toronto and since January 2004 she has been awarded the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional designation for Visual C++. In June 2005 she won the Regional Director of the year award and in February 2011 she was designated Visual C++ MVP of the year for 2010.
Woody Pewitt has held about every job related to software development - from developer, product manager, to director, and many more in between. What he really enjoys is using cutting edge technologies to make software that wows users, and then sharing the story of how it was built. Woody works as an Developer Advocate at Telerik, an agile international software company, which builds tools for software developers and development teams, including Icenium, a cross-platform mobile development tool.
