I have been using the NetBeans IDE for some time now and have always admired and appreciated the support that the community has provided for each other. This great atmosphere fostered in me a desire to help out and so I did all I could to pass on the benefits that the community had provided to me and my work. Being recognized for those contributions was never in my mind and so I am somewhat surprised and honored by my induction into the NetBeans Dream Team. I have benefited greatly by their members’ contributions to the NetBeans community and am hopeful that I can further pass on this benefit as well.
As a Dream Team member it is my hope to foster in others that same desire to help out which first led me to become an active member in the NetBeans community. It is the members of the NetBeans community that extend the value of the NetBeans IDE and help it to achieve something that it could not on its own. With this in mind and to this end I will continue to provide support to the community in a respectful and professional manner, which is what I value most in others.
