Brian Catlin is co-owner and Vice President of Azius LLC. He started building and programming 8-bit microprocessors in 1977, switched to VAX/VMS in 1982 where he specialized in device drivers, and finally to Windows NT in 1992, specializing in device drivers and internals. Brian got into device drivers because he likes to write software that interacts with the real world; writing business software is his definition of torture. Brian also spent a great deal of time in the aerospace/ defense world designing command centers, where he learned the discipline of specification writing and project management. Brian offers consulting services through his company, Sannas Consulting. He is also blogging his hardware design work at http://gadgetengineering.wordpress.com/.
Jamie Hanrahan is co-owner and President of Azius, LLC. He wrote his first device drivers in 1976, for a hardware interface of his own design on an HP 2100 minicomputer under DOS-M. (He still finds tools such as oscilloscopes and logic analyzers invaluable in driver debugging.) Later he spent some time working for Digital Equipment Corporation, winning their "Instructor of the Year" award while teaching VMS internals and device driver classes. He also co-authored a book on Advanced VMS Device Driver Techniques. He has been working with Windows NT device drivers with the NT 3.1 Beta and has provided over 30 drivers to consulting clients. His consulting services are available through his company, Kernel Mode Systems.
