My experience as an Eclipse contributor

Status:
Accepted

The Eclipse community consists of highly qualified professionals who decided to commit some of their time to grow and improve the Eclipse Project. Each of them - committers - began their careers by getting in touch with other people within the community; making small contributions to a project and then increasing the scope of their commitment.

This talk is to present my experience as a contributor, that is the initial stage of commitment needed to be an Eclipse guy. In this talk, I will quickly explain why I think joining the Eclipse community it is a very clever idea; I will outline some of the most important aspects to keep in mind while you are contributing, and finally I will highlight the major drivers and the most common pitfalls one can have when is contributing to Eclipse.

At the end of the talk, I will quickly show the main web-tools I am using. I'll sum up the efforts I spent within the community, and I'll respond to questions.

Achim,

Yes, I think this will work perfectly as a standard talk.
Definitely I have enough quality material for a standard 30 minutes session.

Kind Regards.
