Areas of Interest (Robotics, Software Architecture, Green Energy, Web 2.0, etc.):
I am interested in Web 2.0 and all things web in general. My back ground is J2EE Architecture and Development using IBM WebSphere, Tomcat, et. al. My youngest son has a MindStorm, so now I'm working a bit with leJOS in Eclipse to program it in Java. My other son, is taking a C course at Clemson University, so now I have reached back into the archives and am doing a bit of C/C++ coding in Eclipse with him.
I've been in Hawaii since July 1, 2007. I've been a consultant since the 90's starting with Smalltalk and then moving to Java and Ruby. I've written a couple of books on IBM VisualAge for Java and IBM WebSphere. I've always been partial to the IBM Stack and still like using their tools. I love the Eclipse tool, created by IBMers, and am now heading up the Eclipse Hawaii User's Group (eclipsehawaii.org) in Honolulu.
Greg, it was great to meet you at the Eclipse city-side day-time forum on tues. I should have known I wouldn't see anything to do with the earth's shadow crossing the moon. It was worthwhile to see your young son's java-driven lego-made cruncher machine! How about a user's announcement section on the agenda at future meets?
Hi Greg. We added a link to your group under Tech Sites and featured your event. I would attend but it conflicts with a presentation I am giving at Beer & Business. You may also want to create an Eclipse Users TechHui group. I've attached an Eclipse image of the correct size for group logos.
