As a committer for numerous Eclipse projects and member of the Eclipse Planning Council, 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 and has since evolved in a different direction.
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.
Now, after 7 years managing the JBoss Tools and Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio release train, Nick has experience with Maven-, Tycho-, Ruby gem- and node/gulp-based builds, assembled continuously using Jenkins or Travis CI servers.
