SCSNI, Netbeans Dream Team and other news

There has been a couple of news items with me lately.

First I was just checking the sun certification database, and it was there. The status of the Netbeans certification test took in October is passed. So Now I am a Sun Certified Specialist on the Netbeans IDE.

Secondly, I am now a part of the Netbeans Dream Team. Which means that i will be more heavily involved with the Netbeans community.

More to Come
Happy Coding don't let the snakes bite.

Netbeans turns 10

Man I can't believe Netbeans is turning 10 now. It feels like just yesterday I downloaded version 3.3(which i still have on CD by the way). Back then you could only do web and standard java development. Those days were some very interesting projects back then. It has come a very long way.

Now I am working to provide support for python support in Netbeans. I feel like i am finally giving back to the community that has given so much to me. This has been the chance for me to grow and work with some of the best engineers in the community.
Now All I can say is Happy Birthday Netbeans!!!!

This Just Sucks
