Nick Boldt is the Productization Lead (aka Release Engineer, Cat Herder) for Red Hat CodeReady Workspaces.
As a committer for numerous Eclipse projects and member of the Eclipse Planning Council, he's automated build processes, integrated web & build systems, and designed build tools to simply and streamline building, testing, and releasing project code. He led the Dash Athena project, whose goal had been to bring a common build infrastructure to Eclipse and to other open-source PDE-based project build environments; with the rise of Tycho, this project was no longer needed and has since evolved in a different direction.
A once-avid blogger, he has also contributed to the release engineering efforts for Eclipse projects such as GEF, PDT, VE, RSE, Dash, Web Tools.
With over 5 years' experience in automated Eclipse PDE build systems, Nick decided to depart IBM to pursue a new focus working at Red Hat - applying the lessons learned at Eclipse to the JBoss community and supporting a whole new type of release train.
After many years managing the JBoss Tools & Red Hat CodeReady Studio (aka JBoss Developer Studio) release train, Nick gained experience with Maven, Tycho, Ruby gems and node/gulp-based builds, assembled continuously using Jenkins and/or Travis CI servers. Those were heady times.
