Story of a PELICAN developer
I'm not a Pelican developer, i'm a Pelican warrior !
These few words describe best the deep thought of this weird man.
Early in his career, he was one of the bugging ninja who corrupt the code, but he was captured and re-educated. Under the teaching of his new master, he becomes a guardian of the code.
Pelican warrior in search of a bugging ninja...
Now, he spends his time looking for his ancient allies, the bugging ninjas. Trac, Eclipse, Hudson, Sonar and fresh stinging nettles are his allies now. But, the corruption is still in his soul and a bugging ninja he could become again. His final salvation is linked to the discovery of the one-bug, of which the prophecies are talking.
One bug to crash it all, One bug to stress them, One bug to bring them all and in the desperation bind them In the Land of the abandonned projects where the coders lie.
Be afraid bugging ninjas, here comes the Pelican warrior !
