  • Remy Lebeau

    Remy is a former Art student from the USA who became a self-taught programmer in the early 90's. He started out with web scripting, and then grew into Java programming before finally settling into C/C++ in the mid 90's, though he didn't start using Borland's C++ compilers/IDEs until 1998. Around that same time, he became a co-founding member of the development team for his high school's website.

    During the day, Remy works for an award-winning Telecom company which specializes in developing software-based Voice- and Data- recording solutions for Financial Institutions, Healthcare, Public Safety, Outsourcing Services, Call Centers, and Government Agencies worldwide.

    During his free time, Remy develops his own freeware VCL components and applications under his own company, Lebeau Software. He is also a member of the administrative and programming teams of the open-source Indy Project.

    Though C++ is now his primary programming language (with a focus in VCL programming and usage in particular), Remy is also familiar with many other programming languages, including Java, Visual Basic, Object Pascal, Assembly, Perl, Javascript, VBScript, and ASP.
  • Rudy Velthuis

    Rudy is a Dutch dentist, living and working in Germany, who has been interested in programming since he was 20 and still a student.
    After building and developing synthesizers and supporting hardware for a hobby, he took up programming with a Sinclair ZX80. Having programmed in many languages on the Acorn BBC computer, he bought his first PC when he moved to Germany. Shortly after that, he got Borland Turbo Pascal 3.0, and was hooked for life, first in Turbo Pascal, later in its successor, Delphi. Despite his interest in other programming languages, like Smalltalk, C++ and C#, Delphi remains his favorite language.
