Matt Pietrek (#52)


04/02/15

With over 25 years in the software industry, Matt Pietrek has had quite the interesting ride. Starting at Borland in the late 1980s during the heady days of the Microsoft/Borland “compilers wars”, he got his first, intoxicating taste of OS internals, debuggers and tools. From there he spent a decade at NuMega Technologies, working on seminal, award-winning products like BoundsChecker and SoftIce. Next was a seven year stint at Microsoft where he worked on the Visual Studio debugger & profiler teams, Red Dog (now known as Azure), and Hyper-V. He currently works at Skytap, a cloud computing company. Along the way, he wrote several books on Windows internals, as well as numerous articles and columns for magazines just as MSJ/MSDN, PC Magazine, and Byte. When not slinging Python code or groveling through logs, Matt indulges his passion for distilled spirits and cocktails. He’s got a serious, ever growing collection of rums, and writes the CocktailWonk blog about his spirited adventures: http://cocktailwonk.com
