The "What's Possible with Vision" Blog - Samantha Frost

Samantha Frost
Realizing at an early age I couldn’t make money off of mud pies and torturing my 3 older brothers and younger sister, I left home and went to school in the big city. I studied engineering at Northeastern University in Boston. Dr. Bob went there for his undergrad and was dedicating a building. Being the nerd I was, I was an officer at the student chapter of IEEE so I was there when the building was dedicated. I thought – wow – this guy was funny, kind of nutty, and brilliant. Wonder what type of company this it. And then it started – I worked as a co-op starting off in their Tech Support group. I figured, since I enjoyed helping people (I guess making up for the torture my brothers endured all of those years) and I was a nerd with a bit of ADD, this was a perfect match. In the Tech support group I supported the full spectrum of products, from spreadsheet based In-Sight 2000 programming, GUI based Checkpoint and OMI systems to full blown Vision library programming in C++ and VB (CVL, VisionPro).
