NetBeans Community Docs Update

Hello all,

Its quite unusual to find an update over here, however I felt there’s already so much to blog at there, so you might miss out on some key information.

Team Expansion

Well there’s a phrase-“Fantastic Four and Bond, James Bond” , that came to my mind when James Branam, Program Manager blogged about the Evangelists. He writes-

The program is certain to benefit from their increased participation. I’m looking forward to working with them, and I have to say that with Varun, Amit, Kristian, and Aristides on board, we have one hell of a team.

So, that makes it Fantastic Four and surely, James Branam can be considered as Bond, James Bond 😉

Blog Makeover

There were some structural changes made to the official blog, our program has. You would first of all, encounter the changes to the top, and right panel.


We had started publishing Weekly Newsletter, which are delivered by email too either on Monday/Tuesday every week.

No. of subscribers- 16 🙂

Too less, isn’t it? What are you waiting for? Its just a one-time email subscription

Social Networking

That must be your favorite part, right! It sure does, as reflected by number of members joined in our Facebook Group.

There are 86 members, amazing! Are you a member there? If yes, thank you so much. If not, do consider joining us and interacting with other contributors.

Then, there’s one on MySpace as well, yet we don’t have many people there, so how about joining that?


Today, we have 220 contributions. Amazing figure, thanks to the 2 consecutive record breaking months, which really propelled the growth. We are now going on a steady pace.

Apart from that, NetBeans Dream Team has been actively contributing, in form of Developer FAQ’s, Tips and Tricks, Spanish Tutorials, etc.

Significant Contributors

Diego E. Silva L., Hubert A. Klein Ikkink are the significant contributors who are non-DT members, whereas Aristides Villarreal Bravo is the only exception being a DT member and contributing significantly.

That’s all for today 🙂
