Version Control + Bug Tracking Survey + NBPython

Posted by Nick Sieger Tue, 08 Jul 2008 18:10:01 GMT

At Sun, I work in the Developer Tools and Services group, home of NetBeans, Sun Studio, and a bunch of other developer-focused tools. The project I’m working on is a developer collaboration site where source code version control and bug tracking are essential components.

Of course, we can’t call ourselves programmers if we’ve never gotten into a bikeshed argument about which VC or bug tracking system is best, so we’ve set up a survey for you to vent your opinions on the topic. Check it out, just two simple questions, it will take you all of 10 seconds to respond. I’ll publish or point to results in a week or two after the number of responses has grown above level of statistical significance. Thanks in advance for your votes!

In loosely-related news, Ted Leung and Frank Wierzbicki announced at EuroPython today that Python (and Jython) will be fully supported in a future version of NetBeans, targeting the end of the year for end-user functionality. See Kuldip Oberoi’s announcement for more details.

What’s great about this is that the NetBeans team has decided to embrace an existing community effort started by Allan Davis, and they’re looking for contributors, so if you dabble in Java but would rather be writing Python, maybe you can step up and help them out!
