Berny Goodheart is a computer scientist and author. He is best known for his books about the Unix operating system. He has also worked extensively with the Unix kernel, particularly porting it to new hardware platforms.
He started working with Unix in 1977. He emigrated to Australia in 1987 and initially worked for NEC before moving to Tandem Computers, which became part of Compaq and is now part of Hewlett-Packard. He returned to Britain in 1996 and currently works for Sun Microsystems as Project Manager and Chief Technical Architect for project Janus: an in-kernel Linux binary emulation and compatibility layer for Solaris 10 x86 and AMD64.
He was awarded an Honorary Doctorate in the discipline of Computer Science by Associate Professor John Lions, University of New South Wales, Australia, for his work The Magic Garden Explained (1995) which outlines the history of Unix and its Australian connection.
