Eclipse Night London

2015 Eclipse

On 16 September I gave a presentation at Eclipse Night London on how to write bad Eclipse plug-ins. The goal of this presentation is to show how developers can create consistently bad user experience and how to use the Eclipse APIs to degrade performance and frustrate the user.

Of course, this is indended to be a toungue-in-cheek presentation and aims to show how certain design decisions can help or hinder the experience of an Eclipse user, and aims to show what not to do.

The Eclipse Night London was organised by Tracy Miranda and was held at the Stackoverflow offices in central London, near Old Street tube station.

The presentation is available at SpeakerDeck and I re-recorded an audio transcribed version for posterity at Vimeo. Enjoy!
