After having lots of fun using computers for theatrical lighting, Bob migrated into enterprise computing. For the past sixteen years he’s done enterprise OO using Smalltalk, Java, and more recently Ruby. His interest in native-language object persistence eventually brought him to GemStone, where he¹s worn as many hats as days in the week: qa guy, engineer, architect, trainer, consultant, performance-tuner and project manager.
