Hobson Bullman: My background is natural science, with a PhD in Physics from the University of Cambridge, but I migrated into the embedded space in 1996, when I joined ARM. In ARM, I have worked on embedded software development tools for 10 years, starting in development, and moving into technical leadership roles and later engineering management. In this time I have been the author and maintainer of the RDI 1.5.1 debug protocol, and have led a toolkit development team. My interest in Eclipse began two years ago, and I am now the partner manager for Eclipse inside ARM.
