Meet FishCAT Member Wouter van Reeven
By judytang on May 25, 2009
With this blog I would like to introduce FishCAT member Wouter van Reeven. The first part is the FishCAT survey with Wouter, the second part is Wouter's bio. Wouter is one of our top FishCAT contributors, he sent more than 120 email posts to quality mailing alias to share his expertise with the community, he filed more than 7 bugs which helped to improve GlassFish quality. When I asked Wouter will him continue with FishCAT program, he said: "Yes I will definitely continue with the FishCAT program. And if possible reintroduce the weekly or bi-weekly meetings via Skype", as you can see his passion for FishCAT. In 2009 CommunityOne in SF, Wouter and I will give a joined presentation about FishCAT, click to join this BOF. It will be a fun memory. Thanks Wouter so much for all your great contribution to GlassFish quality !
GlassFish Quality Community (GFQC): What functions you like GlassFish v3 Prelude, and what you like to see improvement
Wouter: Well, the fact that it is the only application server so far supporting JEE6. There are still some minor issues with the admin console which I'd like to see resolved.
GFQC: What things you like about FishCAT, and what you like to see improvement
Wouter: I think the GlassFish Quality members really have done a great effort in listening to the community. Totally excellent! One thing that may be improved is deciding which issue gets which priority. Then again, that is really, really hard to do so I won't complain too hard about this ;-)
GFQC: Will you continue with FishCAT program and would you recommend FishCAT to your friends and ask them to join us
Wouter: Yes I will definitely continue with the FishCAT program. As for asking friends to come and join us, I think that very much depends on whether or not they use GlassFish and are willing to spend time testing new features and reporting issues if necessary. Then again, I would recommend any GlassFish user to join us, be it friends or not!
GFQC: Any other suggestion you like to let us know, your input is very valuable to improve GlassFish quality, thanks !
Wouter: Don't stop FishCAT! And if possible reintroduce the weekly or bi-weekly meetings via Skype.
GFQC: Optional, do you have any fun memory about FishCAT like to share
Wouter: Apart from haveing spent a great many month on the FishCAT mailinglist, I hope the presentation I'll be doing about FishCAT will be a fun memory
