Foss Camp Prague

Quick note: I just did a presentation with Arseniy Kuznetsov (NetBeans director) about NetBeans at FOSS camp. It was kind of cool to demo Matisse in front of people like Mark Shuttleworth :) I think the demos were well received and we also had a discussion about getting NetBeans into Main Ubuntu repository (it is now available in Ubuntu Universe). There seems to be a potential for NetBeans to become a really popular IDE among Linux developers - we support many languages they use. The main missing language seems to be Python - and as you probably know Sun hired two Python/Jython developers to work on that - so the future of Python support in NetBeans is very bright.

FOSS Camp was an unconference, actually we were the only presenters who were using a projector (sorry about that but it would be hard to draw features of the IDE on a flipchart :). I wonder how many of the Ubuntu guys noticed I delivered my presentation on OpenSolaris (Gnome looks almost identical on Linux and OpenSolaris). It was nice for a change to visit an unconference, it definitely has a more "human" atmosphere with more 2-way communication than we see at typical conferences. Maybe it's time for NetBeans to organize some unconference as well? Just an idea.

Comments:

hmm, Python support in NetBeans - sounds real nice - do you have any more details?

What about the Netbeans Grant project - NBPython - will it get sidetracked?

Ted Leung (they Python guy Sun hired recently) mentioned that he's looking for community participation so these efforts may be combined. If anyone from the Grant project reads this comment please contact Ted dot Leung at sun dot com and tell him you're working on the python plug-ins.

Hello Roman,

I was wondering that its been a long time, when we would be hearing the next podcast?

I am eagerly waiting for it!

Regards,
Varun
