I’m seeing more and more people moving to Eclipse as a development platform, even those Windows users who have traditionally used Visual Studio. As an Eclipse user for quite a while now I’m often asked how good it is, or how to use it. Of course, telling people to simply try it out isn’t enough. Many people just don’t get Eclipse and cannot understand or translate the skills and experience they already have to the Eclipse environment. That’s where An introduction to Eclipse for Visual Studio users can help. It’s a quick overview of the fundamentals of Eclipse from the perspective of a Visual Studio user. For a more in depth examination, there’s a tutorial Eclipse for Visual Studio developers, and another on migrating your applications from VS to Eclipse: Migrate Visual Studio C and C++ projects to Eclipse CDT.I can recommend any (or indeed all) of these.
