ACM Award

Hi all,

Many of you have heard that I am winning an ACM award this year for my work on Eclipse.  I'd like everyone to know that I am under no illusions about how much others have helped me to achieve this honour.  Obviously, the SWT committers, past and present come to mind but the community, the PMC and many others from IBM and the old OTI organization showed me the way.  Thanks everyone.

From now on, I'd like to be referred to as "Doctor, Sir Herr count von Northover, Esquire the 3rd",



  • Alright, Dr. Count ;)

    Seriously, this is a pretty big accomplishment; something you, you're fellow recipients and everyone behind Eclipse should be proud of. As I mentioned to you at EclipseCon, I learned so much about good software engineering by simply watching (and trying to keep up) with how Eclipse was designed and delivered. Ship Happens, eh!

  • I'm confused, why would the Academy of Country Music be giving you an award related to Eclipse?

  • I hope that from now on you'll write your blog posts using the royal "we".
