NetBeans 10th Birthday

Starting today there is a one week celebration for NetBeans 10th Birthday.

Chime in and celebrate the NetBeans spirit with the NetBeans Decathlon!

For more details about the Decathlon go here!

From the official statement:

Since 1998, NetBeans has grown from a student project into an award winning Open Source project, IDE and application platform. With millions of downloads a year worldwide, the NetBeans community boasts an active and diverse following of software developers, students, instructors and partner companies.

For our 10th birthday bash we plan to highlight some of the key initiatives and individuals whose contributions and dedication have kept the NetBeans momentum going strong. There will be unique content—video greetings, community profiles and more—available during the week-long retrospective.

We've also come up with a fun way for the community to celebrate with us—the NetBeans Decathlon! Ten interactive activities that let NetBeans users show and share what the NetBeans project means to them.

Participants will be entered to win a cool limited edition NetBeans T-shirt. Stay tuned for details of the Decathlon and the official birthday kickoff!

So you are still not part of the community? Do not wait - you won't get a better start! Join the NetBeans community at!
