Life at Eclipse

Musings on the Eclipse Foundation, the community and the ecosystem

Highlights So Far

So here are my personal EclipseCon 2006 highlights so far:

  1. The Sun team promoting NetBeans out front. Hilarious! I’m proud to say that I’ve got my full allotment of NetBeans kit: one CD and one bottle of water.
  2. Joel Spolsky’s keynote. It’s been a long time since I’ve laughed as much. What a great start to the conference.
  3. Watching the woman from Microsoft work on recruiting the RadRails guys who won the Eclipse Award for “Best Open Source Eclipse based developer tool”. She was on them in about 30 seconds flat. Hey Ed, have you been recruited yet?

  1. It might be good to note that the eclipse splash screen has been replaced by a picture of Steve Northover hugging the Netbeans girls.
