Vincent Brabant

Vincent has been a developer for 10 years and a Java developer for three years. He likes working with open source projects, like tomcat, ant, and NetBeans, and joined the NetBeans project to see first hand if open source projects were a reality not just a myth. He believes that NetBeans is more open source than other open source projects ;-)
Vincent leads the localization of the IDE in french, and supports the french speaking members of NetBeans through the mail lists and localisation of content and news. He is a strong advocate promoting NetBeans and Java. Outside of computers, Vincent adores his wife and children and looks foward to a time when he can make more time to actively persue his passion to travel.
