About

David Carver is a technology geek.  In particular I’m an Data geek.  I have over 20 years experience working in a variety of industries and platforms.   I’m an avid Open Source and Agile Development promoter.   I’m a committer on the Eclipse WTP Source Editing project, working with the XSL and Psychopath Xpath 2.0 components.  In addition, I sit on the Architecture Council and have been on the the 2010, and 2011 EclipsCon program committiees.

I’m a believer that software is about craftsmanship, and that we should always leave the code better than we found it.   Open Source projects need to be as visible as possible, and this means reporting and showing the warts as well as the great things you develop.  Only through knowing our weaknesses and strengths can we improve the products that we develop.

  1. Hi David,

    Nice blog! Is there an email address I can contact you in private?

  2. Hey David;

    I enjoyed your interview on FLOSS. Serenity-Android looks very cool. You guys were briefly talking about alternate Android virtual machines and I wanted to recommend AndroVM on VirtualBox. (http://androvm.org/blog/) I specifically wanted a tablet type VM that looked/behaved like my Asus Transformer and I have been pleasantly surprised how fast and stable it is. It also has the OpenGL extension so the display is very crisp.

    I just checked out the Serenity client on this VM…. but of course, I have no media….:(

    Nice work. I hope you acquire some volunteers soon. I would, but I know zip about coding on Android (I always get landed with the server side, all guts, no glory….)

    Cheers.

      Many ways to help out with the project without having to code. The most import being able to test it on various devices so that I know what devices it works on and what it doesn’t. Updating the wiki documentation would be helpful as well. The best way to help the project is to leave comments on the Play Store and rate the app. It’ll help get the visibility of the project out to more people.
