About Eric Giguere


My name is Eric Giguere, pronounced jee-gair, and I've created this site to promote myself and my writings.

Work History

I'm a software engineering working for Google. Please read this disclaimer: I do not speak for Google.

Previously, I was a software engineer working for iAnywhere Solutions Inc., a subsidiary of Sybase, Inc.

For the years from 1990-1993 I worked as a software developer for the Computer Systems Group, a small research and development group at the University of Waterloo. There I worked on various projects such as early versions of VX-REXX and portable user interface libraries and resource languages, and I also did system administration for our small set of Unix servers.


Education-wise, I hold a master's degree (MMath) in computer science as well as a bachelor's degree (BMath) in computer science and combinatorics & optimization, both from the University of Waterloo. I received my BMath in 1990 (full-time co-op) and my MMath in 1996 (part-time).

Published Writings

At the age of 14 I published my first article for a computer magazine, back in the days when I owned a Commodore VIC-20 and later a Commodore 64. For a while I was a regular columnist for a magazine called Commander, and later on when I moved on to Amigas I was published in The Transactor. I've also written articles for Computer Language (and its successor, Software Development), BYTE and Dr. Dobbs Journal. I also wrote the Programmer's Guide to ARexx under contract for Commodore, ARexx being a very good implementation of the REXX language on the Amiga.

I'm lucky enough now to have published three books with John Wiley & Sons. It certainly took a lot of work, but it's a very rewarding feeling when it's finally done and you see your books on the bookshelf of your favorite computer bookstore!
