C/C++ Development Tooling

This month, after popular demand, we bring you a newsletter focused on C/C++ Development Tooling (CDT). In this issue we introduce the new Organize Includes feature and we highlight things you may not know about CDT. Be sure to read the tutorials to learn how to debug highly complex applications and how to set up your C++ project.

Our team here at the Eclipse Foundation always likes to learn more about the Eclipse Community. This time around, we would like to know what version of Eclipse you use. Please take the time to complete this one question survey.

Finally, I'd like to bring your attention to this great report, Using Eclipse for Java development: A helpful introduction to the world's most-used IDE, by ZeroTurnaround.

I hope to see you at EclipseCon Europe next week!

What do you do?
In my current role I'm managing Tasktop's open source services business. In the past, I've also built plenty of Eclipse based solutions myself. I like the runtime modularity space as well as the Eclipse community.

How long have you been using Eclipse?
I've been using Eclipse since it has been made available and started developing my first plug-ins when version 2.0 was still in the works.

Name five plugins you use and recommend:

What's your favorite thing to do when you're not working?
That's a pretty tough question because open source and the Eclipse community is a big part of my life. Sometimes, I get away from it all with garden work or home improvement projects. I enjoy hanging out with family and friends, having a beer or two and occasionally some fishing.
