I am very disappointed that recent circumstances don’t allow me to be at EclipseCon Europe this year. I still look back with pride on my time working on Eclipse. I was looking forward to participating at an EclipseCon conference and to meeting the community again. I'm really happy that Dirk Baeumer from my team can jump in for me. Dirk spent the entire journey from Eclipse to VisualStudio code with me, so he has all the insights. I am still looking forward to future opportunities to exchange with you.
