Austin Eclipse DemoCamp
I'm back at my desk now trying to stay awake after a coma inducing lunch of Stubb's BBQ following the Austin DemoCamp. A bunch of Nokia people from our office joined Chris Aniszczyk and people from IBM, Freescale, and others to look at a few demos and talk about Ganymede. (That's Chris pictured along with John Cortell and Glenn Meter).
Despite developing Eclipse plug-ins all day I haven't spent much time looking at the new PDE stuff in Ganymede so it was great to talk to Chris about it first hand. I talked a bit about CDT and how we develop Carbide.
The session was also something of a reunion of former Metrowerks people: the team that developed the CodeWarrior tools was bought by Motorola years ago which then spun them out along with Freescale. The CodeWarrior for Symbian team then moved to Nokia and now develops Carbide.c++ at our office here next to the coma inducing BBQ. So a lot of people who created the CodeWarrior tools back then are working with Eclipse now. It was great to have a chance to visit with some old friends and make some new ones. I'm hoping we can continue to get the Eclipse people in Austin together now and again.
