I am honoured to be part of the Apache family. :)

Following the tradition let's introduce myself.

I am 27 years old, french, and I live in Toulouse, while being in the heart a 
mediterranean as all my childhood was in front of the see.

I started to not only use computers but try to improve them with a Ti-89 
calculator [1]. So I started at a very low level with some 68k asm, and then 
I quickly learned C to avoid some headache.

Then I discovered Java in my french engineering school which I found pretty 
cool in transforming segmentation faults into NPEs. After my graduation I did 
an internship at Anyware Technologies where I discovered the web 
applications, the open source and the Apache Foundation via Sylvain Wallez. 
Thank you Sylvain for introducing me to the Apache projects, but most of all 
to the community aspect of the foundation.

Working on different projects I learned first about Cocoon, then I did some 
Eclipse plugins. After that I deeply looked into Lucene, also OpenRDF, and 
learned about Ivy after some maven frustration. I also get interested by 
Husdon, did an Ivy plugin and became a committer there. Then little on my own 
(I would like to thank my managers to allow me to do so) I decided to try to 
make IvyDE work because I was bugging me and a lot of my colleagues, forcing 
us to use some tricks. I had some difficulties to enter into the Eclipse JDT 
framework, but some thread on the ivy user mailing list keep me investigating 
bugs. Now that I know deeper Eclipse, I will continue to improve IvyDE 
because I think that even if Ant + Ivy can be a standalone core build system, 
tools for users do make the difference between a application and a great 
application.

Thank you everyone!

Nicolas

PS: special dedication to my father who wrote me a dedication in his 
book : "you have to contribute to the open source !". Done dad ! ;)
