From Programmer 97-things
Yechiel M. Kimchi
Yechiel Kimchi is a mathematician (PhD in abstract set theory, Hebrew University, Jerusalem), a computer scientist (teaching more than ten years at the CS faculty at The Technion, Israel), and a software developer — working more than fifteen years alternating between big high-tech companies and working as a consultant through his own small firm. Initially in C, and then in C++, he is interested in object orientation and the ways to develop software that is correct, maintainable, and efficient at the same time. Among other things, he developed heuristics for efficiently solving practical NP-hard problems, but he considers as his greatest achievement the influence he had on the technical education of several thousand Israeli software engineers.
