Amy Hendrickson
started TeXnology Inc. in the early 1980's after completing a MM degree in Music Composition at New England Conservatory, and working for a year in the VLSI Office at MIT, where she discovered TeX and typeset one of the first books produced using this technology.

Subsequently, she has had wide-ranging experience with TeX and TeX related software. Besides writing multi-user macro packages used by many book and journal publishing companies, she has written custom macro sets for database applications, for software documentation, and for producing prelinked PDF files from LaTeX sources. She thinks that uses for LaTeX are only beginning to be explored, and welcomes the opportunity to develop further innovative uses for LaTeX in combination with PostScript and Acrobat.

Amy has provided LaTeX training in many cities in the US and in The Netherlands, including teaching a course in Beginning LaTeX more than 20 times for the support staff at MIT, as well as teaching classes on-site for clients all over the US.

She has produced hundreds of books for major publishing companies starting from author supplied LaTeX files, producing final camera ready PDF, and writing custom style files to match the publisher's specifications.

She has written articles for the TeX Users Group magazine and has given talks on macro writing at the TUG meetings in College Station, Texas and NYC, at the Netherlands SGML/NTG meeting, and at the European TeX Users Group meeting at Cork, Ireland.

Past Contract Work Some of our past contract work include database publishing, for IEEE  who needed help in the process of translating approximately 500,000 articles from SGML with embedded TeX code into HTML form; for Hewlett Packard  translating documents from SGML to TeX to be used in slides for in-house training; and for InterMetrics  who distributed information about their software in LaTeX in tables several hundreds of pages long.

More recent innovations include report generation for financial risk analysis reports, with automatically generated contents tabs, perhaps many hundreds per report, that are formed with Tikz, and are hyper linked to the appropriate part of the report, distributed in pdf.

Since html and pdf forms may be parsed and used to build custom .pdf documents using LaTeX with Tikz illustrations, we have the tools for many and diverse kinds of automated report generation.
