Mikaël Barbero, Team Lead at the Eclipse Foundation, is a passionate software engineer. He started programming at the age of 10 with BASIC and hasn’t stopped since.
After having led and contributed to many Eclipse projects (especially in the modeling area), he is now taking care of the release engineering for the Eclipse Foundation. He is currently co-leading the Eclipse CBI project and is a committer on the Eclipse IDE project and a couple of others.
A hacker at heart, Mikael likes to untangle everyday things to reveal their design layers. Good design is not only about attractiveness, but ought to have a purpose.
