Wayne's Lunch and Learn

Once a week for the past two weeks Wayne has been hosting a small Lunch and Learn activity at the Foundation's office. The goal here is to help bring Eclipse Foundation Staff up to speed on the various Eclipse technologies. Last week Wayne introduced us to bottom-up design by coding jUnit tests first. This week we learned that Plugins are First Class citizens, and he showed us how to build a plugin. Very interesting stuff.

At any rate, it's impressive (and entertaining) to watch him produce hundreds of lines of code in mere minutes by simply pressing a few keystrokes. Eclipse rocks, but he definitely knows his stuff - most likely because he's a semi-Old Dude who knows Smalltalk.
