I'm a member of a new Netbeans group called the Dream Team. We are all supporters of the open-source Netbeans project. We work to promote and improve Netbeans. See www.netbeans.org which has a RCP package and a Java IDE. To me it is the best Java development environment available with many out of the box features. Best of all: it's free. I also contribute patches and modules/plug-ins to the project.
I am a software engineer in the Knoxville, TN area. I have many interests. Computers and electronics are two, and happen to be how I make a living. I love what I do.
I like to contribute to open source projects when I am able. I'm a long time contributor to the NetBeans IDE and RCP/Platform.
