À propos de l'auteur
Michael R Sweet is co-owner of Easy Software Products, a small software firm specializing in Internet and printing technologies. He first started using a computer at the age of 6 and sold his first program at age 12. Michael was first hired as a consultant doing computer graphics while finishing his bachelor's degree in Computer Science at the SUNY Institute of Technology in Utica/Rome, New York. He moved to Maryland shortly after graduating to develop real-time graphics displays for the US military, primarily for flight training, safety, and engineering. After working for the Navy for several years, Michael started Easy Software Products to develop a 3D modeling program for real-time displays called ESP Modeler. The need to print these models led him to develop a second product called ESP Print. It quickly became apparent that ESP Print was the more popular product, and Michael has developed the concepts and technology in ESP Print into the current Commmon UNIX Printing System and ESP Print Pro products his company provides. Michael also actively works on other open source products such as FLTK, Ghostscript, HTMLDOC, and SAMBA.
