Bruce W. Weide is professor of computer and information science at Ohio State University, where he co-directs the Reusable Software Research Group with Tim Long, Bill Ogden, and Stu Zweben. His research includes all aspects of software component engineering, especially applying RSRG work to practice and teaching its principles to computer science students.
Among RSRG’s technical innovations are the RESOLVE software component engineering discipline and the “swapping paradigm” for component design and implementation. RSRG work has been supported by NSF, FIPSE, DARPA, Microsoft Research, and Lucent Technologies. Dr. Weide holds a PhD in computer science from Carnegie Mellon University (1978) and a BSEE from the University of Toledo (1974). He is a member of IEEE, ACM, CPSR, and UCS.
