|Re: [eclipse.org-architecture-council] Proposal API/extension point design workshop|
It might be useful to include or even focus on an "API Tools" aspect to such a summit, or workshop.
Be sure to include Anti-API ... what's bad API look like how/when do API become "hidden" (compiles ok, but leads to subtle, hard to spot dependancies on certain behavior, right or wrong, that might lead to large re-writes later.
Even if the very final form of the deliverable goes beyond the workshop, the workshopcould have a goal of a first draft, of ...- a book on Eclipse APIs
yeah! I just wasn't bold enough to propose that ;-)
Good idea Michael ... may be lots of interest ... now, if we could plan to hold the summit on one of those cruise ships ... :)
... what about Europe? E.g. Heidelberg (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heidelberg) + a beautiful city (more life than Esslingen) + close to the Frankfurt international airport (70 miles ~ 45 minutes by (German ;-) car) + I live there -- no travel for me ;-) Or a Greek island? Michael
