Personal information

Full Name
Eric Moffatt
IBM Rational Canada
Job title
Eclipse 4 Dev Lead
All forms of pixel pushing (GUI, Visualization, CAD...), Most forms of ball pushing (Golf, Billiards...), Video game mayhem, Quantum Mechanics / Astrophysics (OK, just the easy stuff..;-)

I've been doing UI work since well before the term came into use (my second program produced a triangle...of asterisks...on a teletype !).

Since then I've had an interesting career but all my jobs share a common theme; put useful things onto a screen, usually for folks to manipulate.

In 2006 I was lucky enough to be able to join the Eclipse Platform UI team and eventually become a Platform UI Committer. Since then I've tried to update the UI, most notably re-defining the min/max behavior.

Starting in 2008 I was part of the team designing the 'e4' architecture and producing some of the early presentation code. As time progressed I was made the Eclipse 4 Dev lead and since then have been mostly concerned with re-implementing the Eclipse IDE on top of the 'e4' architecture, eventually releasing the first production version in Juno.
