[CSS 2006] Mike Milinkovich's Keynote

I'm sitting in Mike Milinkovich's Keynote at the Colorado Software Summit in Keystone, Colorado. Mike is the Executive Director of the Eclipse Foundation - his picture can be seen on his IT Conversations page. Mike had fun getting up here - driving through the snow - and waiting on the freeway for a couple hours while the "rock slide" was cleared.

Mike's presentation is titled "All About Platforms, Lessons learned from Eclipse". Mike used to work for Oracle, and he's been at the Eclipse Foundation for 2 years. Before that, he was at WebGain. The company that "would not believe that Visual Cafe sucked". He's been in the Tools Business for a long time, and has never bothered to learn Java. He used to do a lot in SmallTalk and that's they last time he programmed. The "repository thingy" in Visual Age for Java was his fault.[Read More]

OpenLogic sponsors AppFuse Development

Open Logic A couple of weeks ago, I blogged about integrating Facelets and Ajax4JSF with MyFaces. What I didn't mention was I needed to do this for a project I was working on at OpenLogic in Broomfield. Even better, OpenLogic gave me permission to use the code in AppFuse 1.9.4. In addition, I learned enough on the project to integrate Facelets and Ajax4JSF into Equinox 1.7.

Please help me in thanking OpenLogic for their generosity! Also, don't forget to checkout the OpenLogic Blogs.

The New MacBook Pros - 40% faster!

My MacBook Pro is fast, but there's no such thing as a computer that's too fast. The fact that the new one is 40% faster than my current one makes me drool. Anyone interested in buying a 15" MacBook Pro with 2 GB of RAM? ;-)
