Ingo Muschenetz

In the course of building and releasing Aptana Studio, we faced a number of challenges in the Eclipse build and deployment infrastructure. Studio is available stand-alone and as an Eclipse plugin, and contains multiple plugin suites, all with independent release cycles. I'll describe our strategy for building and releasing in this environment with a completely end-to-end automated build process, discuss how to craft small, optimized updates to end users, and several expensive pitfalls and ways which you can avoid them in your own process. Among the topics covered:

Ingo is in charge of the Aptana Studio Web Development Environment, an Eclipse-based platform for developing Ajax, PHP, Ruby on Rails, iPhone and Adobe AIR applications. He is also a committer on the Eclipse Monkey scripting project. Before Aptana, Ingo was CTO of DefenseWeb, a software provider to Department of Defense clients. Ingo graduated From Harvey Mudd College with a Bachelor's in Computer Science. He currently lives in San Francisco with his wife.
