Whats next for Eclipse

I have started my java career with Jet Brains' IntelliJ (more lovably called IDEa). After some time, IBM gave away one of the greatest donations to OSF The Eclipse platform. For the novice of me at that time, This was huge - How come a company that build WSAD give away the foundation technology used for the same commercial product to OSF. Well for good or bad, IBM did what it did.

Ever since there is no looking back for Eclipse community - which grew leaps and bounds and now there are more than 50 core projects in eclipse itself and numerous plugins for almost any kind of development and deployment on earth.

Eclipse's V3.4 has moved into the direction of OSGi (one of my recently found enthusing technologies). Recently there are preparations for e4 the next version for Eclipse.

Whats next?

Javascript: Convert Strings to Binary (and representing in a nerdy way!)

I follow those GoogleDevelopers Videos. Sometime back, in one of the presentations on GoogleIO, there was this interesting string of dots at the bottom of each page of the presentation. They looked like random big and small dots. A similar bunch of dots were also on the T-shirt of a presenter was wearing in another presentation. While it seemed something in the pattern, I could not find what it was. Finally, another presenter cleared the matter that those dots are just binary representation of "GOOGLEIO" (So much for advertizing Google IO, Impressive!).

So I wanna do it. Takes me back to days of those DSP classes at school. Nerdy me had to churn some old brain cells. I remember those first programming language classes in Pascal and C when you were asked to do fibonacci series and converting a binary string to ascii codes. That *experience* came handy here: Check it out!

For those who came to copy the javascript code to convert string to binary, Here it is…
