This BOF will provide an opportunity to discuss experiences, and best practices in user interface design with a cross-section of developers and user interface designers with diverse experiences creating, extending, and consuming Eclipse projects.

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.

Mik Kersten is the President and CTO of Tasktop Technologies, lead of the Eclipse Mylyn project, committer on the AspectJ project, and member of the Eclipse Architecture Council. While a research scientist at Xerox PARC, Mik implemented the first aspect-oriented programming tool support with AspectJ plug-ins for JBuilder, NetBeans, Visual Studio, and Emacs. He then created Mylyn and the Task-Focused Interface technology while completing his PhD at the University of British Columbia. Mik's passion is building Eclipse-based tools that offload our brains and make it easier to get creative work done.

Bob Fraser is a senior product manager at BEA Systems where he works on Web 2.0 and social computing technologies and making them relevant to the enterprise. He is active in the Eclipse community as a member of the requirements council and chair of the User Interface Best Practices Working Group.
