What better way to kick off our 10th birthday bash than with a retrospective and birthday greeting from the Godfather of Java, James Gosling!

NetBeans Dream Team

Over the years, the NetBeans IDE has won awards and received positive reviews from the industry, but our best endorsements still come from within the NetBeans community, from developers who use our tool almost exclusively and encourage adoption among other developers.

The NetBeans Dream Team is a group of super users who do just that and more. We are proud to acknowledge their commitment to the NetBeans project.

Featured Project- Glassfish

NetBeans 10th Birthday Celebration Decathlon

To honor 10 years of the NetBeans project and community, we’ve selected ten events that anyone can participate in to be a part of the celebration. The first 300 participants to complete events that add up to 50 points will receive a limited edition NetBeans 10th Anniversary Shirt! In keeping with the spirit of community, these events are all based around various community activities and sites: blogging, forums, Facebook and more. So read on, pick out your favorite events and celebrate away!


  1. 10 events, each worth a different amount of points.
  2. Complete any number of events that tally up to 50 points.
  3. IMPORTANT: Keep track of links to blog entries, forums, and so on. You will need to submit these links in the Decathlon Entry Form.
  4. The first 300 participants to complete the Decathlon form will be eligible to receive a limited edition NetBeans 10th Anniversary T-shirt.
  5. There is no judging, so be creative, reminisce, and have fun!
  6. The Decathlon ends on Monday, October 27th, 2008.

Cheers 😉
