BIRT-ing Out Loud


Final thoughts on CeBIT

Posted by mblock , 08 March 2010 - - - - - - · 18841 views

I had a great time at CeBIT (although it was very busy, we barely had time to breath). We had a great BIRT event on Thursday where more than 20 people showed up and I was really impressed on how the German audience was really BIRT savvy.

This was the first time Eclipse was at CeBIT and our booth was really busy. Actually the whole open source hall was almost overrun with people.

Of course many of the people were most impressed by out BIRT Rocks! T-Shirts (see my previous post http://www.birt-exch...rt-rocks-cebit/).


There's a Community Manager for BIRT Exchange?

Who is this Ray Gans? Isn't he a Java guy?

It feels like introductions are in order. Actuate created the opportunity for a BIRT Exchange Community Manager and here I am to fill the bill. Okay, it wasn't quite as simple as that, but close enough. My recent background is within the Java Open Source Community. I led the core team at Sun Microsystems responsible for moving Java SE to open source.

Now that I'm with Actuate, my role within the BIRT community will be to build new and cool ways for you to participate, help you have a strong voice in BIRT development, coordinate community events and activities, and in turn, take the community feedback and activity to Actuate.

5 Fun Facts about Ray
  • Loves fine wines and cheeses (well, not blue cheese)
  • Boardgamer extraordinaire (especially cooperative games)
  • Shameless iPhone fanboy
  • Descendant of England"s King Richard the Lionheart
  • Happily married to Jayne and living in San Jose, CA

To help me acclimate here, I'm interested in your thoughts and opinions on BIRT and the BIRT Community. You can leave feedback for me from my contact info here. I look forward to working with you to continue evolving this community and BIRT to suit your needs.
