    Speaker Profile

    Andy Pennell

    Andy Pennell has been creating debuggers for almost 20 years now, and using them for even longer. His first debugger creation was MonQL for the 68008 in 1983, but now in 2001 he is a dev lead on the Visual C++ debugger for x86 and IA64. Hex addresses have grown from 4 digits to 16 digits in this time, and he's still typing them wrong occasionally. His favorite keypress is F8 and his favorite window is QuickWatch.
