Eclipse 3.3 - Europa

Thinking about moving to Eclipse 3.3?

As Callisto was last year, Europa is the way to go!

Eclipse Europa is the annual release of Eclipse projects. Like last year’s Callisto release, the Europa release is a coordinated release of different Eclipse project teams. This year, the annual release includes 21 projects. By releasing these projects at the same time, the goal is to eliminate uncertainty about version compatibility and make it easier to incorporate multiple projects into your environment.

Project Zero is here

At Impact 2007, the WebSphere team started talking about a project that has been in the works for the past year, Project Zero.
This is great stuff and I feel that it will certainly be playing a role in how we create our applications in the future. Jump in now!

Project Zero
Project Zero introduces a simple environment for creating, assembling and executing applications based on popular Web technologies.

CRN - IBM looks to open up development
IBM is kicking off an experiment to open up its software development process in a way that mirrors the creation of open source applications.

SearchWebServices.com - WebSphere CTO looks past Java to REST and Web-based SOA

You think about lightweight environments. One of the things I think about having done in WebSphere is can we build a radically simple environment on the Web for building Web-oriented applications? I think the answer is yes.

Pretty much since Lotusphere I have been off-line.

Overall, it's been great, but at times uncomfortable. Transitioning to a new computer made this super easy. I never seemed to update my feed reader and found that I was always needing to install something else. A horrible move that has made me loath this unmistakably Lenovo brand ThinkPad T60p and has had me keep off it as much as possible. This let focus tremendously on the work ahead, but left me seriously behind the curve on other topics.

So what was I doing? I was researching and learning as much as I could about Lotus Connections. Last year, I focused on Workplace Forms and fell in love it's XML based language and MVC structure, but I could not resist the call from the horizon of IBM's Enterprise 2.0 technologies and was drawn to Social Networking the Connections way. I began working with managed beta customers and the development staff as Connections sprouted from internal projects and applications to a customer product.

Now that it is out for general availability, I feel I can rest and get back to it and work at being more connected.

Back on the Blogwagon

Today is the day! I've been looking forward to this for a while now and have some good ideas brewing that I cannot wait to share.
Thanks if you didn't remove me from your feed list or blog roll and if you did, add me back! I know that blogging isn't a competition, but I guarantee that you will enjoy this and will find that it will be better and more frequent than some others. : )
