Hi. This is me below with my son Jan.
I have been working on various parts of NetBeans IDE since 1999, prior to acquisition of a small company in Czech Republic called "Netbeans" by Sun Microsystems. As you can probably tell from my blog I now work on NetBeans Java EE support.
I live in North Carolina. When I am not hacking some code for NetBeans I like diving the NC wrecks, flying at Wings of Carolina Flying Club and hiking in mountains. And I miss my sailing club, but hope that's not forever.
