For the third year in a row, Instantiations has been named to Oregon’s Fastest Growing Private Companies Top 100 List. It’s good to see a company built around Eclipse technology doing well (even though I hear they have guys locked in the basement working on Smalltalk products ;p).
This is something that most people miss when they think of Eclipse. Eclipse is not just about free software, hippies and freetards, it’s about a ecosystem of major vendors, innovative start-ups, universities and individuals coming together to extend and support the Eclipse platform.
In the end, we all benefit from building the Eclipse platform even though we may have very different goals and motivations. Where else can you find such a diverse group of individuals and companies working together under one umbrella?
