Libor Spacek began his professional programming career in 1970 in London, UK. A few years later he obtained a BSc degree in Mathematics, MSc (with distinction) in Computer Science and finally a PhD in Artificial Intelligence (AI). He spent most of his working life as an academic in a UK university and some also in Prague in Czech Republic. He has taught Computer Science and AI to great many students at all levels. He also speaks several human languages quite well.
Dr Spacek has eventually retired to Australia, where he now enjoys writing open source software and books like this one, this time just for the fun of it.
