Adi Rome has a BA in Computer Science from Tel Aviv University. After a spell in teaching, she worked in Quality Assurance, moving to analysis, design and implementation of embedded systems, before joining Symbian in 2004. As the multimedia guru within the Developer Services team she provides technical consultancy across all areas of Symbian OS, with special emphasis on hardware.

Mark Wilcox has been playing with computers since his dad bought a ZX81 when he was four. He wrote his first multimedia application (a three room text adventure with sound effects!) on an Acorn Electron when he was seven. Mark has a Masters degree in Mathematics, following this up with a research postgraduate in Cybernetic Intelligence. In 2001 he started developing software for mobile phones and since then has been involved in handset development projects for Ericsson, Fujitsu, Nokia, Panasonic and Samsung. During this time he's worked on everything from a GPRS stack, device drivers and a power management server to messaging applications and the code that draws the soft keys. It was while working as a Software Architect for Nokia's Multimedia business unit, developing their flagship Nseries products, that Mark developed his interest in the multimedia capabilities of Symbian OS. Mark became an Accredited Symbian Developer and a Forum Nokia Champion in 2007.
