(Sorry for my English - I did my best)
I met yesterday (Open Source Jam Zurich at Google Switzerland) a very
interesting person. With him I had a short talk about PDT. I forgot the
name (as always), but he said some interesting things about PDT
development: There are some presentations and documents about the PDT
development and how to get into it.
I played with the idea for a long time to get involved in the PDT
project. There is only one thing, that isn't so easy: to get into such a
project, to find out how everything works,... . What I'm looking for is
some information material about the PDT project. I've done some small
experiments with extending Eclipse, but I don't see a useful thing that
I can do for my own. So I'd like to play at first a bit around with the
PDT source (to learn it) and with the time to become a committer
(solving bugs and at some time I can implement a new feature).
What I'm searching is any kind of useful material to get into the
development of PDT. I found some peaces with searching but it's hard to
know how good it is, how new, and so on.
I thank you already for your help! And thank you for PDT it made my PHP
development a lot easier and more fun.
For people which are interested in who I am:
I'm a 20 years old Apprentice (I work three days and go two days to
school). I've been developing PHP for more than five years, Java for
about three years (but very intensive). I also have the SCJA and SCJP â
but I don't think that this say a lot about my programming skills.
I work for the SFMS Management AG (but in reality for SWX Swiss Exchange
AG) and there I'm writing in C# for .NET. For PDT I will work in my free
time, so the whole thing doesn't have to do anything with my company.
I also have experience with other programming languages: Visual Basic
(everyone has to start with something ;-) ), Delphi, a bit of school C,
Python and so on. At home I use Gentoo and Windows XP as my preferred OS
but I have also experience (most of them I used for a short time during
my education) with other platforms like Solaris, OpenVMS, a lot
GNU/Linux Distr. and the Mac OS.
I was born in Russia but I've been living in Switzerland since I was 6
years old. My target in education is to go to the university (ETHZ:
http://en.wikipedia.org/ETHZ) and get a Master. My current education is
a bit hard to describe. I can only describe the school with "boring"
because of the things you learn. Because of that I try to do a lot at
home for my education like the SCJA / SCJP, reading books and developing
and hopefully soon working on PDT.
Thank you and I wish you all a sunny day,
