Michael Kirkham is President/CEO of COMPANY: Muonics
and creator of MIB Smithy SDK
and its parent product, a visual MIB
development/compiler environment called MIB Smithy. Michael has been using Tcl/Tk
for cross-platform development (particularly GUI
s) since around 1994-95, around the time he became employee #1 for a well-known (in the industry) Scotts Valley, CA based company specializing in SNMP
compliance testing software, for which he was the architect and lead developer for many years.
In addition to specifying and authoring hundreds (thousands?) of SNMP compliance tests, designing and implementing multiple SNMP engines from scratch, and being an acknowledged contributor to a couple of the SNMPv3 RFCs, Michael has also been known to track down and/or submit bug fixes here and there to the Tcl core, joined the Tile
development team in November 2004 (mostly helping out with MacOS X
Aqua bug fixes and notebook improvements) and lurks on news:comp.lang.tcl
from time to time.
Michael also does consulting on the side and can be contacted through Muonics.
