I’m Bruce E. Wampler, and I’ve been working in the PC industry since its earliest days (that’s the late 1970’s). I was born and raised in Casper, Wyoming. I graduated from the University of Michigan in 1975 with a BSE in Computer Engineering. I received my Ph.D. from the University of Utah in 1979.
I was a pioneer in the PC software industry. I developed the first spelling checker for a PC (it ran on a Radio Shack TRS-80). I also developed the first true grammar checker for a PC. I’ve written a Java programming book, and developed an Open Source graphical library.
After serving five years on the Roaring Fork School District school board, I’m now off on a new project to build a new web based service.
