Biographies > Christine Detig & Joachim Schrod

Christine Detig & Joachim Schrod

In 1982, Christine Detig met TeX on reel-tape during her computer science studies, resulting in her becoming a founding member of DANTE, the German TeX Users Group. Her early software experiences were gained around the TeX workbench, resulting in the formation of a small business in the provision of TeX distributions. Spreading TeX knowledge as part of her job as a research assistant at TU Darmstadt resulted in a book for TeX beginners: Der LaTeX Wegweiser. Meanwhile, visiting lots of international conferences has led to many friendships with the eclectic crowd of TeXies. Meet her there for a nice chat about the Future of TeX!

Joachim Schrod also started to use TeX in 1982 and he is another founding member of DANTE. He wrote and supported the international version of LaTeX until LaTeX2ε came along. He has been involved in lots of TeX activities, most of them too long ago to be remembered, but among the more enduring are the creation of CTAN and the TeX Directory Structure. Today he is the CEO of a consulting company, where he strives to translate between business and technical people.
