Profile

Nick Boldt is the Productization Lead (aka Release Engineer, Cat Herder) for JBoss Tools & JBoss Developer Studio.

As a committer for numerous Eclipse projects including the Eclipse Modeling Project, he's automated build processes, integrated web & build systems, and designed build tools to simply and streamline building, testing, and releasing project code. He led the Dash Athena project, whose goal had been to bring a common build infrastructure to Eclipse and to other open-source PDE-based project build environments; with the rise of Tycho, this project was no longer needed.

An avid blogger, he has also contributed to the release engineering efforts for GEF, PDT, VE, RSE, and Dash.

With over 5 years' experience in automated Eclipse PDE build systems, Nick decided to depart IBM to pursue a new focus working at Red Hat - applying the lessons learned at Eclipse to the JBoss community and supporting a whole new type of release train.

When not at the console writing Bash, Ant, Java, or PHP, Nick can be found outdoors walking his various dogs, cycling, or kayaking on Lake Ontario.
