On behave of the http://www.vogella.com/company/ I’m happy to announce that we joined the Eclipse Foundation. While our employees were already heavily involved with the Eclipse open source framework since several years, this step makes our company commitment official.
We work on almost all Eclipse Platform projects and we are happy to currently be the second strongest contributor to the Eclipse Platform.
We are also leading the Eclipse Platform UI project and it is great to see more and more new people coming in and help with the project. Still we remain very active in this project and it is great for us to see that we are currently doing more than 50 % of the commits in Platform UI.
Many of our customers are using the plug-in development tools, we are also heavily involved in them.
But of course that is not all, we believe that it is important to also help other projects to improve the Eclipse IDE experience, so we contribute to various projects. Our Eclipse vogella GmbH company page lists the projects we are involved in, here is a current snapshot.
We definitely love the Eclipse Platform and are very impressed with the skills in the Platform team, we are looking forward to work closer together with the Eclipse Foundation. We also hope to continue and intensify our efforts in improving the Eclipse IDE and Platform experience and are looking for qualified developers located in Germany, fulltime or part time (students).
