Steve is currently a "Software Design Expert" (whatever that means) at Amdocs BCM division, working primarily on the integration of a mature suite of business operations software with JEE-based component software. In support of this work, he has also developed 2 generations of modeling/code generation tools based on Eclipse. He has recently been spending a lot of time with RCP development, both at Amdocs, and for outside contracts, and still manages to find some time to work on Eclipse as a committer (though not as much as he'd like). For the past 25 years, Steve has bounced around various jobs and contracts, working on everything from single-chip embedded systems to multi-platform enterprise systems in a variety of languages and with a variety of tools. Steve received a Bachelors degree in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of California, Davis.
