Before I leave for the snowy mountains of British Columbia, I figure I would drop a mention of a new article (oh my, it’s my 10th one at dW!) I have written about Eclipse User Assistance (UA). It’s an introductory article aimed to pique people’s interest in Eclipse UA. I think UA is one of the things people take for granted in Eclipse and should aim to use more of the facilities available. For example, I think if more projects aimed to use cheatsheets, they could help their users with the learning curve associated with their project. In fact, the PDE and eRCP tutorials at EclipseCon will be exclusively using cheatsheets to help guide tutorial participants.
Also, thanks to Dejan Glozic and his team for valuable comments on the article.
