Kate Gregory has been using C++ since before Microsoft had a C++ compiler, and has been paid to program since 1979. She loves C++ and believes that software should make our lives easier. That includes making the lives of developers easier! She'll stay up late arguing about deterministic destruction or how C++ 11, 14, and 17 are not the C++ you remember. She has helped thousands of developers to be better at what they do. Kate is a Microsoft Regional Director, a Visual C++ MVP, an Imagine Cup judge and mentor, and an active contributor to StackOverflow and other StackExchange sites. She develops courses for Pluralsight, primarily on C++ and Visual Studio. Since 2014 she has been a speaker and Open Content Chair for CppCon, the largest C++ conference ever held.
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.
