The Beginning

February 20, 2008

I started my sabbatical at the Eclipse Foundation January 7, 2008, with main goal of starting a University Outreach program that attempts to increase the number of students entering the workforce with experience using Eclipse technology. A secondary goal is to provide university and college lecturers with Eclipse content and have them provide new content back to the program. For completeness, “Eclipse technology” extends beyond an IDE (though this is a great starting point). Ideally, students graduate from university with at least an awareness of the many frameworks, and APIs provided by the various Eclipse projects.
