We would like to acknowledge the following people, organisations and
companies that have contributed to the development of the Platinum
We appreciate the many suggestions and good ideas of the people
working at the MD&C department to improve Pt on POSIX platforms.
With this feedback Pt was ported to AIX and Solaris.
We thank PTV AG for supporting the Platinum C++ framework and
for encouraging their developers to commit code to the project.
Their expertise of the Windows CE and Symbian S60 platforms
was more than welcome.
Eckhardt + Partner GmbH uses the Platinum framework for the
development of high performance financial trading applications.
We appreciate their involvement in the development of the
framework, as well as testing on unix platforms.
Atesion GmbH not only uses Pt in its MeaProcess product line,
but also contributes heavily to the development of Pt for
Windows and POSIX based systems.
Peter ported Pt to the Symbian S60 platform during his diploma
thesis. We thank him not only for the good work, but also for
the many suggestions to improve Pt and a very pleasant time.
We are grateful to Bernd for his invaluable support and patience
during the design and implementation of the Pt website, as well as
the artwork he provided.

Roman finished his studies in Information Technology in late 2002. Since
then, he has been developing multi-platform software for a number of
different operating systems. Platinum served as a portable runtime in
some of his recent projects.
Sebastian is currently employed at Continental Automotive Systems. He is
interested in embedded real-time control systems and attends to QNX
compatibility of Platinum predominantly. He earned a Dr.-Ing. in
Electrical Engineering (University of Siegen in 2006) within a
research-project that implanted an artificial hip-cup prosthesis with
robot assistance for the first time.
