Biography

Judy Vincent Bio:

Started career in IT in 1980 in Denver, Colorado, as a HP3000 Computer Operator. Worked my way up to a Programmer/Analyst then moved into IT Management. After a 16+ year career as a HP customer, I went to work at HP as an Account Support Engineer. It was during this time that I made my transition from MPE (HP3000) OS to HP-UX, HP's propritery UNIX OS. After 3 years in the field, I moved to the UNIX R&D organization. Today, I am a Project Manager in the UNIX Systems Lab, managing a team of engineers that are testing HP-UX on new Itanium platforms. I also manage the Kernel Triage team as well as the Engineering Services group for all of the lab's servers and storage.
