I have been using Subversion for collaborating on the book and it works great.
Jeff Norris and Mark Powell of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory gave a fascinating presentation at EclipseCon regarding NASA's adoption of the Eclipse Rich Client Platform for Mars rover mission planning software.
Apple had a nice presence at EclipseCon last week, and is showing other signs of support for Eclipse on Mac.
I'll be blogging from sold-out EclipseCon 2005, Feb 28 - Mar 3. (Several speakers have already posted PDFs of their presentations.)
I'm doing a NetBeans module-building presentation inside Sun next week. POV-Ray scene language makes a nice demo for explaining how to do some things. So NetBeans now has POV-Ray support (screen shot in blog)...And after a month on the road demoing NetBeans, I'm back in rainy Palo Alto. But I took a few more nice pictures on the way.
So I moved from Prague to California. And I had this car in Massachusetts. What better way to get it to California, than to drive, with lots of stops to demo NetBeans for people?
As some people know, I recently moved home to the U.S. after living for 5 1/2 years in Prague. Culture shock is not when you move to another country. It's when you come home. Some observations on what it's like to come back.
I switched to using Subversion a few months ago and I love it. So much so that I regret not having made the move sooner. Prior to Subversion I was a CVS user. Regrettably, I still am in many ways. SourceForge does not provide Subversion services as an alternative to CVS. I maintain one project on SourceForge. I'm discovering that I like Subversion enough that I'd consider switching for it...
When I used to work on Windows computers, I used Ctrl+F4 to close windows. That held true across applications. I've been working on MacOS X now for about two years and the modus operandi for closing windows is Command+W.
Why do I bring this up? Because I have been interested in trying out NetBeans 4.0. I noticed that RC2 now is available for MacOS X. One of my biggest wishes in my current...
Now that NetBeans 4.0 is going final, I wanted to
explain why I've now fully adopted it, lock, stock and barrel.
William Pietri pointed out an interesting link to some research on creativity.
If you are a lazy developer like me then you appreciate that Maven provides a jump start for a simple project. This means you are out of execuses for not evaluating your doubts about Java with life code.
Typical Ant projects are designed to deliver a single jar as a result. One has to know how the name of the jar and the place it is stored.
But Ant can also be used in a more functional style 'returning' a rich set of results on a target invocation.
Graduation in the Global Education & Learning Community is upon us. This time the fare is aimed at helping teachers teach with visualization tools.
JQuery provides an embedded logic programming language, and a fact database built from your source code, allowing you to build queries that shows only those elements of your source code that you want to see.
Sometimes it is the simple things that count.
...Wherein we examine what ant fundamentally lacks, and
possible ways to address the important problem of build control.
Sam Dalton and I are running a JSIG session about Java development on Mac OS X next month...
Why hasn't UML endeared itself to me, and will JSR-207 help to change that?
I've just started using Clover and it's an amazing tool.
