Michi Henning, ZeroC Inc.

/alltime/images/speakers/michi_henning.jpg Michi Henning is Chief Scientist of ZeroC, Inc., where he spends much of his time developing new software and consulting to customers world-wide. From 1995 to 2002, Michi worked extensively on CORBA as a member of the OMG Architecture Board, ORB implementer, consultant, and trainer. Together with Steve Vinoski, he wrote "Advanced CORBA Programming with C++", which among CORBA experts is rated as the definitive text in the field. Since joining ZeroC, Michi has been working on the design and implementation of a radical new OO middleware platform called "Ice". Ice breaks new ground in the middleware area by providing a platform that is less complex, more powerful, and better performing than CORBA, allowing distributed systems to scale to previously unachievable levels with significantly reduced development effort. Michi is a co-author of "Distributed Programming with Ice", which provides a detailed description of the Ice object model, protocol, and APIs. Michi holds an Honours Degree in Computer Science from the University of Queensland, is a founding member of Australian UNIX Users Group Queensland, and has acted as program chair and program committee member for numerous technical computer conferences. When not doing computer-related things, he desperately tries to improve his golf handicap. Hope springs eternal...
