Alexandre Julliard was one of the first developers of Wine when it started in 1993. In 1994, he assumed the responsibility for maintaining the Wine project, and has led the project ever since.
Alexandre graduated in 1994 from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, Switzerland with an MS in Computer Science. He then worked for various companies developing embedded software for devices like payphones and routers, all the while maintaining the Wine project in his spare time.
In 1999 he joined CodeWeavers to work full time on Wine, assuming the role of CTO in 2003.
We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
