During that time he wrote a Forth language implementation for Acorn Computers, and wrote accompanying user manuals for the Acorn Atom and BBC Micro. He has spent the majority of his time in system integration (SI), building and leading the SI team. He has produced user documentation for software for the Sinclair QL, the PC application software for the Psion Organiser I and the source code translator for the original version of OPL. Joint author of the Organiser II spreadsheet and principal designer and author of the Psion Series 3 and 3a word processors, he was also lead author of the Psion SIBO SDK team.

She has also been involved in training and usability management. Elisabeth has a BA in Technical Communication/Information Design from Malardalens Hogskola and Coventry University, as well as an MA in Contemporary English Language and Linguistics from Reading University. After graduating in 1996 she worked as a technical author, information designer and web editor for various IT companies in the UK, producing documentation for both network management and market research software. She would like to thank Alex Peckover and Murray Read for providing both example code and technical expertise. Greg Zaoui- Gregory Zaoui first joined Symbian in 1998, as a graduate software engineer with a 'licence de Mathematiques' from the University of Strasbourg.
