These include the SOS Interface for the Mac,[1] which later became Interface Builder for NeXTSTEP (1985),[2] and later still evolved into an important part of Mac OS X. He also led the iCal and iSync development teams for Mac OS X (2002).[3]

In 1981, Jean-Marie Hullot received a Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Paris at Orsay,[4] where his adviser was Gérard Huet. He was a researcher at INRIA from 1979 to 1985, when he joined NeXT. In 1996 he co-founded RealNames, a URL translation service which closed in 2002. He worked as CTO of Application Division at Apple Inc. from 2001 to 2005. He was the President and CEO of Fotopedia, a collaborative photo encyclopaedia.
