Well, our team is hitting code freeze today, and so it's time to look ahead and think about database tooling for NetBeans.next.
Last year I interviewed 10 different Java developers about how they use databases, and it was very enlightening. But I didn't talk to very many PHP developers.
I'd like to change that, and YOU can help. If you develop with PHP and would like to help the NetBeans db team improve your productivity when it comes to working with databases, then let me know, and let's talk. You can reach me at david dot vancouvering at sun dot com.
