While I worked for the German Aerospace Center (DLR) I was in the lead of a project team working on the SESIS project. Definitely one of the most interesting projects I ever head. During this time I was in charge of the development of the Reconfigurable Computing Environment (RCE). Since then I moved on and started to work for Sun. But the project has moved on – And I am so happy to see it grow more mature! RCE has now been released under a open source license and been renamed to Remote Component Environment! Great stuff – Two days ago it hit version 1.4.0 – My congratulations!
