Greg Watson is a software engineer at IBM Research and project leader for the Eclipse Parallel Tools Platform Project. He has worked in some strange places, such as Los Alamos National Laboratory, because his research interests focus on tools for parallel computers, program debugging, distributed computing and operating systems. He has contributed to the award winning Clustermatic software suite, a Linux-based cluster management system, and is maintainer of the PPC port of the open-source LinuxBIOS project.
Beth Tibbitts is a veteran of software development in IBM, including APL and LISP, both underdog languages and environments, and eventually C++ and Java, amongst many others. Beth has developed tools for Expert Systems, debuggers, education, ADHD children, and for making web sites more accessible to persons with disabilities. She became a fan of Eclipse several years ago and has more recently written tools for programmers and users including tools for porting C and C++ programs to Linux. She is a committer on the Parallel Tools Platform Project and now develops tools for high performance computing users, primarily aiding in the development and analysis of parallel programs to increase productivity, making heavy use of the APIs in the CDT.
