First DE in Prague...
By djberg on Dec 18, 2006
I have great news for you. Today is a rather significant day. Trung Duc Tran was promoted to a Distinguished Engineer (DE)! Why is this significant? Beyond the fact that Trung is the chief architect of NetBeans and has been driving the technical vision of that incredible product for a long time, he is also the first DE to be named in our Prague Engineering Center.
The technical leadership at Sun has been working for some time to increase the international (outside the US and for that matter California) leadership around the world. It may seem like a small victory for Trung to be named a DE but it is a great step forward in developing and recognizing our international technical leadership.
Congratulations to Trung!
