Ever wonder what is the role of the Eclipse Foundation? Curious if the Foundation can help you or your company better leverage Eclipse? This presentation will expose the Foundation for what it really is: a community service provider. It will present the good and the bad about interacting with the Foundation. Attendees will gain insight into how they too can abuse and flatter the Foundation staff for their own benefit.
Wayne works for the Eclipse Foundation where he fills the dual roles of Director of Committer Community and Evangelist. He spends his days working with the many Eclipse projects, learning about Eclipse technology, and making sure that everybody knows just how cool it all really is. Wayne is also the editor-in-chief of Eclipse Corner, PMC Lead for the Technology Project, Project Lead for the Examples Project, co-Project Lead for the SOC Project, and an advisor for osbootcamp. In 1982, he received the prestigious Chief Scouts Award from then-Governor General Edward Schreyer. In 1984 his team was selected to represent beautiful British Columbia in the Kinsmen Voyageur Relay. In his spare time, he writes down meaningless accomplishments from his youth in a lame attempt to impress the reader.
