Making Eclipse Our Own: Customizing the Eclipse Experience for Development, QA, and Support (presented by Perforce)

Session Type: 
Sponsored [35 minutes]

Perforce has a small and passionate Java team working on our portfolio of Java products. This team uses a tool stack with Eclipse at its core and other tools familiar to the Java Community, including Mylyn, Ant and Maven. Over the past several years, this team has learned how to customize and scale the Eclipse IDE to suit an Agile development environment used by Engineers, QA and our Tech Support team.

In this presentation, Nellie LeMonier, User Experience Designer, and Randy DeFauw, Technical Marketing Manager, will describe how Eclipse makes Perforce’s Java team more productive. Eclipse, particularly for our Java developers, becomes the centerpiece of daily work. This direct experience influences how Perforce builds its own tools for Eclipse.
