Frank DeRemer received his BS and MS in Electrical Engineering, with Honors, and then his Ph.D. in Computer Science from MIT (the Massachusetts Institute of Technology). His Ph.D. thesis was completed in 1969 and was ground-breaking in the area of the practical translation of (designed) computer languages. One of his papers was selected as one of 50 most influential and technically excellent papers on programming languages and their implementations during the period 1979-1999. Frank was Assistant then Associate Professor of Computer and Information Science at UCSC from 1969 through 1982. He co-founded a computer software tools company in Santa Cruz in 1979 and sold the company in 1999. He has worked for the acquiring company since then until he was laid off in June, 2002. Frank was raised in a Christian home, but it took a while to “take”. He became sold out to Jesus in 1976 and was married to Lynda in 1977. The couple has two children, Elliot (19) and Charis (22), as of June 2004, both of whom are followers of Jesus.

Frank has his own "Creator, Maker, Cosmos" website where you will also find a One-Year Parallel Chronological Bible.
