David Heller began his writing career in the 1980s with a series of programming books for Addison Wesley, Simon & Schuster, Reston-Prentice Hall, Macmillan and others. He’s best known for his groundbreaking work, Dr. C. Wacko’s Miracle Guide to Designing and Programming Your Own Atari Computer Arcade Games. (Whew!) In the early 1990s, he wrote the first VHDL synthesis and simulation manuals for Synopsys, and also wrote manuals for Viewlogic. For 20 years he headed up Internet Business Systems, and developed content and hosted blogs for many of its targeted technical sites. He now spends his time doing video work for CAD/CAM companies, and writing about today’s technologies.
