About Pierre Morel-Fourrier
I’ve been working on C/C++ projects for 25 years, although I have worked on a few C# WPF/Silverlight projects recently.
Here are a few softwares I created, amongst others :
In 1987, a C langage interpreter for Atari ST, published in France by Loriciel. With an integrated multi window editor, it allowed anyone to learn C language without using makefiles, command line tools, etc.
C Interpreter has been written in C, with Lattice C compiler, which has been bought by Microsoft to become Microsoft-C 1.0!
From 1991 to 1993, I’ve been working as a developer for Visual C++ 1.0 and 1.5 under Windows 3.1, and Visual C++ 2.0 for Windows NT. I have particularly developed text editor, class browser, project manager and the Windows NT debugger. At that time, the team was 3 to 6 developers (without the C compiler itself), leaded by Jeff Beehler.
In 2009-2011, I was contractor for Thomson Reuters Eikon development team. It is a huge C/C++/C# project developped in Paris, Bangkok and New York. This is the kind of software market traders use, so they get financial news half a second before others. Using C/C++ is mandatory for this kind of project because the speed of information really matters.
