Tim Wagner

What will the two dominant IDEs (and tool platforms) do next? Where will they innovate? Will they look more or less like one another? What fundamental changes (collaboration, multicore, peer-to-peer) will influence our tools? Come explore where both Eclipse and Visual Studio are heading in fundamental areas of user experience, language models, IDE features, designers, scripting, and platform reach. We'll also be taking a look at some new paradigms, such as multiple document views, and whether the latest UI technologies will result in evolutionary or revolutionary changes to the IDEs that exploit them. This will not be a product comparison or a review of any existing open source release but rather a speculative look at where the industry as a whole is heading as seen through the lense of these two major drivers of change.

Kevin's history with Eclipse is about as long as you can get, being one of the original Eclipse team members before it went open source. His area of specialty user interface design and development. He's had various Eclipse related roles including team lead and committer for Team/CVS, UI design and development lead for IBM WebSphere Integration Developer, and presently a member of the Eclipse Platform UI team. Before Eclipse, Kevin has been a team lead and developer on IBM and OTI tooling projects such as Visual Age for Java, Visual Age for Smalltalk, and Envy Smalltalk.

Dr. Wagner is the former lead of the Eclipse Web Tools Platform project, and now works with Microsoft's Visual Studio Platform team on the evolution of its Visual Studio products. Dr. Wagner's background in IDEs, including both research and product development, has included a wide variety of patents, papers, and operational contributions. With extensive experience in the Eclipse open source community, companies such as BEA that leverage and extend open source across their product offerings, and with Microsoft and other companies producing commercial IDEs, Dr. Wagner has garnered a wealth of insight into the similarities and differences in the business, technology, and product models.
