Wayne Beaton
Director of Open Source Projects, The Eclipse Foundation


Wayne works for the Eclipse Foundation where he is the Director of Open Source Projects. He spends his days helping Eclipse projects and committers be successful, learning about Eclipse technology, and making sure that everybody knows just how cool it all really is. Wayne is also the editor-in-chief of Eclipse Corner; member of the Technology, Mylyn, and TPTP PMCs; a frequent Tweeter; and regular blogger. In 1982, he received the prestigious Chief Scouts Award from then-Governor General Edward Schreyer. In 1984 his team was selected to represent beautiful British Columbia in the Kinsmen Voyageur Relay. In his spare time, he writes down meaningless accomplishments from his youth in a lame attempt to impress the reader.

Great care has been taken to provide a web experience for development. Read more.
