John Wiegand

In addition to its contributions to the landscape of development tools, Eclipse has also contributed to the evolution of different types of digital communities. In a spectrum of open source to commercial projects, the technologies and their communities can be observed to interact in beneficial ways to the software being developed. In this talk we'll take an exploratory look at how communities are evolving, drawing on examples from across the industry, including experiences in IBM.

John Wiegand is a Distinguished Engineer at IBM Rational's Beaverton lab and Rational Chief Architect. John is responsible for defining the architectural and implementation aspects of Jazz as a platform for use in products across the software lifecycle. Prior to John's current assignment, he was the technical lead for the Jazz project. John was the principal architect for the Eclipse Platform infrastructure and played a central role in the development of VA/Java, VA/Micro Edition, and Eclipse. John is a former member of the Eclipse Foundation Board, and played a key leadership role in establishing Eclipse as a successful open source project. John strives to enable teams to deliver high quality products on-time - pioneering, with Erich Gamma and others, an approach to software development called "The Eclipse Way". His interests are in the areas of performance, scalability, compilers, and just about anything that's hard.
