Vicki Brown (firstname.lastname@example.org) has been using Unix (and variants thereof) for nearly 15 years; she began programming in awk and sh almost from the beginning. Vicki has also been working with Macs for 11 years, both in the employ of Apple Computer, and in her personal life. The Mac OS is her second favorite operating system and favorite user interface.
Vicki started using MacPerl in 1995, when she needed to crunch a large quantity of spreadsheet data. Resisting the idea of learning Excel macros, she leaped into MacPerl. She soon discovered that Perl allowed her to perform almost any programming task on the (shell-less, awk-less) Macintosh. Vicki lives in San Bruno, California with her spouse, Rich Morin, several cats, and many computers, including multiple Macintoshes.
Chris Nandor (email@example.com) is the webmaster and head web developer for Peterson's, an educational publishing company in Princeton, NJ. A 1995 Journalism graduate of Biola University, Chris now telecommutes full-time from his home in Carver, MA.
Chris has been working with Macs for 10 years and MacPerl for two years. He has spent much of his time over the last year working with MacPerl and Apple Events and has written an article on the subject for The Perl Journal (December, 1997) and was invited to speak at the second annual Perl Conference (August, 1998).
