I just submitted a talk to EclipseCon France – it would be great if you could up-vote it (registration required), or forward it to other Eclipse-loving people. Thanks!
In case you are wondering: The talk is not technical, but focuses on career decisions of a developer. Not sure whether the program committee likes this, but that's what's on my mind these days.
I am project lead on the Eclipse Requirements Modeling Framework (RMF),
which also contains a tool called ProR for requirements engineering (http://eclipse.org/rmf
In two weeks, we'll start a sprint to improve the GUI. We welcome

"Never tackle a problem of which you can be pretty sure that (now or in the near future) it will be tackled by others who are, in relation to that problem, at least as competent and well-equipped as you."

Here is an interesting blog entry by Shane Paterson that explains why a Naval Architect is called Architect
.Â I don't quite agree with his suggestion to change Solution Architect to Solution Engineer, but that is another question.
And why does this matter? Because I work for Vitae. This is a great deal and a milestone for this company. Read the official press release
