Shirts and Workspaces

If you haven’t heard yet, the EclipseCon 2009 committer shirt contest is going on now (go vote!) Here are my three favorites… first we have the classic polo which can be used in any office or meeting setting:

Next, we have the XML/XSL shirt which I give bonus points to because I imagine only Dave Carver wearing it:

Finally, royal purple is always in fashion for me so here’s my final favorite:

On top of all this fun t-shirt selection, I’d like to point people to an excellent post by Emil Crumhorn discussing how to add the workspace chooser dialog in an RCP application. I’ve done this in the past and it was tragically hard if you weren’t using the IDE application in Eclipse. I hope that in the e4 timeframe, we look at making this easier for people as the concept of a workspace is still useful for RCP applications. The only difference is that RCP developers may expose the workspace selection in a different fashion and not even use the term, “workspace.”

    I was banging my head to the wall, what “X – M1” and “X – S1” meant…

    Also, what bugs me about all those t-shirts is that why do they all have graphics on the back?

    lol Eugene

    I don’t know… I think some of the shirts were really creative, it’s hard to critique as I didn’t submit anything. I do think it’s cool that the submission and judging process is open to the public.

    Just say no to polo shirts.

    The dart or rugby shirts have great potential and my vote is cast.

    As I already commented on Nick’s blog, I agree with Eugene:

    After over 2000 years of civilization, I can’t believe men over the age of 20 would wear a T-shirt with print on the back.

    Praying to god that the shirt will actually be something tasteful enough that I would be caught dead wearing it. Most of those are so gaudy/flashy that I’m not sure I’d even wear them at the conference.

    Of course, the likelihood that I’ll get a shirt that fits is approaching zero anyway, so perhaps it’s a moot point.
