Bill Schmidt: Music and computers make a good mix
William “Bill” Schmidt will receive the 2022 Distinguished Achievement Award at the annual Alumni Banquet, part of Fall Festival, Sunday, Oct. 9.
This award acknowledges character and citizenship, achievement in a chosen profession or vocation, and work of benefit to humanity.
You might say Schmidt works as a translator – only the “languages” he’s translating are “human” and “computer.”
He is the principal compiler engineer for Intel Corporation’s development software engineering group, a position he took earlier this year after working for IBM for 29 years.
