About the authors

Jan Newmarch is Head of ICT (Higher Education) at Box Hill Institute, Adjunct Professor at Canberra University and Adjunct Lecturer in the School of Information Technology, Computing and Mathematics at Charles Sturt University. He is interested in more aspects of computing than he has time to pursue, but the major thrust over the last few years has developed from user interfaces under Unix into Java, the Web and now into general distributed systems. Jan has developed a number of publicly available software systems in these areas. Right now, he is looking at sound for Linux systems and programming the Raspberry Pi's GPU.
