Be engineers education?

Hi there,

I am a bit interested in BeOS history. Can someone enlist where Be engineers have studied. I am also interested in other information about Be engineers life.

Does someone know where I can read about it?

Best regards

BeOS Bible… some info also in Be newsletters/articles… some devs were students at the same university…

That is personal information that really is nobody’s business


Here’s a link to the book.


Perhaps it is personal information but it is NOT PRIVATE information.

Just about everyone publishes where they studied publicly when searching for jobs… find something else to virtue signal over. And here you are attacking someone’s innocent curiosity over nothing.


It’s none of your business


Please stop.
Andreas wanted to read about published info about the historical Be engineers, how they ended up there, and if anything in their path of life was significant in regard of having worked at Be. He asked about public knowledge. There’s nothing wrong with that.


You can find them e.g. on LinkedIn:

Not really core engineering but somewhere in-between development and management:

A good history article is at

There’s also a multi part history at

Specifically about the filesystem, which is still my favorite feature:

Here’s a recent article the covers the why’s and gives an inspiring outlook:

Yes of course! How could I forget her? Nice mix of Be, Amiga and Google references presented in a late1990s web style btw🤓
