My experience as an Eclipse contributor
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.
