The Object Teams Blog

Adding team spirit to your objects.

Thanks Eclipse!!

with one comment

Wow! I’m totally flattered. Last night I received this shiny trophy:

Basically, my involvement in Eclipse has two simple reasons:

  • Given that the JDT is the favorite IDE of so many smart Java developers, it’s a real treat to be able to take part in its constant improvement still. Making unsolicited comments to other components of the bunch just adds to the fun.
  • Given the success of Java and the JDT, it’s a thrill to lift both of them to new dimensions in the Object Teams project. Have a deep look and you’ll think differently about objects and modularity.

If you feel similarly in any regard but aren’t involved yet, don’t feel shy: none of the Eclipse components is to be worshiped in a museum, but all over the place new contributors are essential for keeping this great piece of software fresh and alive in its second decade. I’m looking forward to next years Top Contributor! (Yet, I will not pass on my little trophy :)).

Thanks to all, and especially to the JDT team, for having me!

BTW: EclipseCon 2012 in Reston is the best EclipseCon 2012 ever!
