Zero to CTO

Disclaimer: First, you should know that I am a girl born in the 80’s and so I grew up watching (and watching and re-watching…) Disney’s movies, and I am still used to watch them when new ones are released. So I am sorry for you: no doubt, at the end of this article you will have many annoying songs running in your head. But all those girls made what I am today and it is only justice to them to ear...

Back to the Future

Last week, Obeo sent me to San Jose, California to attend the 1st Eclipse Converge and Devoxx US which was really cool of them. It makes sense to co-locate those events as both involved Java developers and open source projects. I really believe that these communities have so many things to share that this week in California would be a great occasion to learn from each other. Eclipse Converge I sta...

Sadness

That’s too sad!  EclipseCon Europe  finished yesterday. It was again a great conference, with inspiring talks and excellent discussions with different members of the Eclipse community. These moments with our community are motivating us to prepare the future of Eclipse Sirius . So what’s next? What would we cook for you in Eclipse Oxygen? As we already said in our talk, we are already preparing the...

Anger

Do you ever feel that? This week I often dreamt I had the gift of ubiquity… I could replicate myself and be in several places at once. It would be a really useful skill to participate to EclipseCon Europe. I am angry to not be able to see all the talks I would have liked to attend. Happily, as every year all the slides will be available on the EclipseCon website and most of the talks are recorded ...

Fear

Wednesday will be a huge day for Obeo at EclipseCon Europe 2016 . You will find several talks about Eclipse Sirius in the program, and one thing for you, you have to attend our talk about Sirius 4.1: Let Me Sirius That For You! As usual when I have to give a talk I am a little frightened but in fact I love this feeling which pushes me to do my best :) Our slides are ready, our demo is exciting, no...

Disgust

What feeling do you never want to encounter in life? For me it’s Disgust! Nevertheless, I encounter it sometimes, in very special cases… for example when as a Java developer I have to work with the reflection API to fix some unthinkable problem. As the team behind Sirius, what matters most to us is to be sure that our final users never feel this about our product. That’s why in each release we wor...

Joy

This week I am participating to EclipseCon Europe to present what’s new in Eclipse Sirius 4.1. What I feel like on monday morning: Joy! On Monday evening I’ll be in Ludwigsburg for EclipseCon! This one is little special as it will be my first one as an official Sirius committer. I am really happy to introduce you to the new features of the 4.1 release, especially what we did to improve the specifi...
