The Eclipse Foundation is fortunate to have some very talented people working full-time on behalf of the Eclipse community. Below is the list of our staff.
Eclipse email addresses all follow the firstname.lastname@example.org convention.
Outside of work, Mike's passions are his family, the family cottage and hockey (as a coach, player and fan) in pretty much that order. When he's not working, or traveling for work, you will probably find him involved in one of those three things.

Mikaël is developing cool new stuff and fixing annoying old bugs in the Eclipse Platform. He also helps take care of the released bits of the Eclipse Foundation. When he's not at his computer, he enjoys spending quality time with his family and friends and playing good old video games.

Wayne works for the Eclipse Foundation where he fills the dual roles of Director of Open Source Projects and Evangelist. He spends his days working with the many Eclipse open source project teams, learning about Eclipse technology, and making sure that everybody knows just how cool it all really is. In 1982, he received the prestigious Chief Scouts Award from then-Governor General Edward Schreyer. In 1984 his team was selected to represent beautiful British Columbia in the Kinsmen Voyageur Relay. In his spare time, he writes down meaningless accomplishments from his youth in a lame attempt to impress the reader.
Wayne authors the Eclipse Hints, Tips, and Random Musings blog.Follow @waynebeaton
