Interview by J. Nicholas Hoover

1
First Timer
"I'm more of a PC user. This was the first time I had any programming experience on a Mac, which came from a friend."

2
Motherland
López moved to the United States from Mexico in 1997. "If you're in software in Mexico, that means you work in consulting. Very little software development is done there. Companies outsource to India and China, but Mexico, next door, is completely overlooked."

3
Conundrum
"Something that I found quite interesting when coming here is how very few Mexican professionals you find. I went to school in Mexico, and I know a lot of capable individuals."

4
Football Fan
"I like to travel, and I'm planning to go to the World Cup, so [the prize money is] pretty useful. Being able to go to the World Cup for the first time--that's really exciting."

5
Hooked On Macs
"I bought a Mac mini. One thing I have in mind right now is this whole idea of putting computers in cars--GPS, music collections, stuff like that."
