Chief Innovation and Technology Officer, TOTVS
Nominee for Contributing Member representative
|email:||weber at totvs.com.br|
As the first Director Member of Latin America in the Eclipse Foundation my main objective is to create and improve the Eclipse Foundation in new markets and countries, like Brazil, Argentina, Chile and others.
I am the CTO of the largest software company in Latin America, with an ecosystem with more than 55.000 developers (including employees, customers, consultants, etc.). I’ll use this great ecosystem to spread the Eclipse Foundation, its projects and products, but also gather all the particular needs from our developers and companies and share those with the Eclipse Community to make it even stronger. This great ecosystem represents also a unique opportunity for new projects and products.
By being a Director at the Eclipse Foundation, I’ll act as an evangelist, spreading all the Eclipse products and projects to enhance its quality. I’ll sponsor community projects and gather and implement ideas to keep the balance between performance, innovation and quality.
