Do You Want More Plug-ins? Let Us Know You Use NetBeans.
By Roman Strobl on I 06, 2006
Is your company using NetBeans? Or building on top of NetBeans? We'd love to hear from you. No matter how small your company is or where it is located, stand out of the crowd and let us know. This is a small thing for you to do but can help us gain a lot of credibility when talking to potential partners and plug-in builders ("just look at the list of companies which use NetBeans").
You said to us that you want more plug-ins and more books about NetBeans. Every potential plug-in builder or book publisher asks: "How many companies are out there using your product? Show me some names." Right now we can tell them about the growing community and about companies we agreed we can quote before. But that's not enough and we're sure there's lots of companies out there using NetBeans we simply don't know about. Otherwise how could the NetBeans user base get almost trippled in the past year?
Write a comment about how your company uses NetBeans here or write me directly to roman dot strobl at sun dot com - as long as you are comfortable with us quoting on what you say. Few sentences should be enough. You can also mention NetBeans on your website and send a link to us (the logos are here). Thank you.
Update: Thanks to all those who sent me a message, next to the comments here I also got some very interesting contacts, including a fortune 100 corporation! If you read this post anytime during year 2006 and we don't have your company listed, let me know by e-mail. We will contact you in case we'd like to quote you publicly - don't worry about that.
