About the Authors:
■■JOACHIM ROSSBERG was born in 1967, the year of the Summer of Love.
He grew up in the southeast part of Sweden just outside the small town
of Kalmar. After school he worked for ten years as an assistant air traffic controller in Halmstad on the Swedish west coast. There he also met his wife, Karin. The urge to learn more grew stronger, and after some years he started studying psychology. This led to studies at the University of Gothenburg, where he finished his bachelor’s degree in psychology in 1998.
■■RICKARD REDLER was born in 1973 in town of Örebro located in the
middle of Sweden. Early in his life, Rickard discovered the abstract world of computers when the Sinclair machine and the Commodore 20/64 were born. From that time on, computers were a part of his life. During his studies at the University of Örebro, he found that the courses at the university didn’t give him the practical experience necessary to be a good programmer. He therefore decided to run his own company to get real-life experience—and also to make some money. Although his company did quite well, in 1997 Rickard decided to become an employee of Cap Gemini Ernst & Young in Örebro.
