Welcome New Brackets Committer Miguel Castillo

I’m very excited to be able to publicly welcome Miguel Castillo as the newest Brackets committer. Miguel is responsible for some fantastic Brackets extensions including Interactive Linter, Whitespace Sanitizer, Tomcat Manager, and of course Themes. It’s this last one that has had the biggest impact on Brackets as Miguel recently worked with the other committers to bring his extension into core so we could ship themes as a default feature in Brackets.

It was a huge undertaking and involved a lot of tireless effort on the part of Miguel to refactor his code to fit in with the other core features. But it’s also had a huge impact. Themes was one of the most requested features in the Brackets backlog and since releasing themes in Release 42 we’ve seen lots of themes uploaded to the extension registry.

I asked Miguel to write up a little bit about himself:

My early days were in C++ and Java building headless browsers to enable load testing of web platforms, then moved on to C# and WPF which ended up molding some of the current practices I like to follow.  Eventually, I found my way to building large scale web applications with JavaScript et all.  Since my move to JavaScript, I started my endless search for an editor that was for the Web, which eventually led me to Brackets.  Its extensibility and community has captivated me.

Currently, I am a software developer at Symphono. My focus is on web technologies where I get to work on cool stuff like WebRTC and D3 goodness, among others.

I love Open Source, Beer, and most of all, my family.

If you want to see what he’s up to or give him a congratulations shout-out, you can find him on Github and Twitter.

This brings the total number of community committers on Brackets to 8. We’re looking forward to adding more!

Love what you create

I love what you create

My name is Peter Thiess and I’m the engineering manager of the Brackets core team and a few related initiatives here at Adobe. After more than a decade developing proprietary software, it’s my pleasure to work on a project like Brackets and really exciting that Adobe has invested in this open source project.
Ever since I worked with tools like KDevelop and Subversion, or libraries like curl, the passion and dedication of Open Source contributors like Daniel Stenberg, have encouraged me to believe that there is a humble and humane force behind coding. Open Source is social coding and has always been, but it never felt as close as with Github; respect — you guys changed the world, yeah!

Individuals like Marijn Haverbeke or Tomás Malbrán have gained my deepest respect while working on Brackets. In addition, every single contributor to Brackets thrills and motivates me and my team every day. Not that one needs a lot of additional motivation to work on Brackets. It’s a real honor and a lot of fun to work with such smart engineers and an astonishing community. I love what you create! more
