Interview with Timon Veenstra

Timon Veenstra, RCP developer, experienced Java architect, and Workie Talkie user for past few days gave us his personal opinion about Workie Talkie and Integration into NetBeans IDE. We are thrilled to hear that he has such a good opinion about this project, and honored to announce that he will join us in our work and be the first contributor of WorkieTalkie.

Here are the questions/anwsers:

 

Workie Talkie Team:

Did you noticed any memory leak when using Workie Talkie?

Timon Veenstra:

No. Memory usage in netbeans is always fluctuating even when you have
no project open and do nothing.
Workie Talkie has no noticable implications on the memory footprint.

 

Workie Talkie Team:

Does your app  (Agro Sense) runs slower with Workie Talkie ?

Timon Veenstra:

No!

 

Workie Talkie Team:

Are you satisfied with WorkieTalkie (no bugs, no exceptions, stable or not,…)

Timon Veenstra:

Yes I am satisfied with WorkieTalkie. Of course the software contains
some bugs. I would like to meet the first developer who is able to write
code without any bugs :)

As stated in the featured article Workie Talkie is beta software, as
such bugs and exceptions are expected.

 

Workie Talkie Team:

Does this idea is enough good to you? (Plug-in based chat)?

Timon Veenstra: 

The idea is not only good enough, it is great.
Not only does it provide an aditional feature to the Netbeans IDE, it
also provides a building block for applications build on the netbeans
platform.
It is based on jabber so it should be fairly easy to provide a totally
customized chat just for your application.


Workie Talkie Team:

Does your IDE runs slower with Workie Talkie?

Timon Veenstra:

No.

 

Workie Talkie Team:

Do you think this is ridiculous idea, and project should be abandoned at once?

Timon Veenstra:

It’s a good idea, why would anyone abandon a good idea?

 

 

This opinion of one of the platform experts means a lot to us. Thank you, Timon, for your support! We are glad to cooperate with you!
