Introducing the EUPL

I was very intrigued to learn about the European Union Public License today. Having a government-drafted and supported open source license is breaking new ground as far as I know.

I found in particularly interesting that they drafters selected the Eclipse Public License as one of the licenses they will be compatible with. That is a wonderful endorsement of the EPL, and a recognition of Eclipse’s adoption in Europe.

I wonder if the European Commission will be seeking OSI approval?

Eclipse Summit Europe is Coming!

I'm speaking at Eclipse Summit Europe 2007
We are just a few weeks away from our second annual Eclipse Summit Europe event. Last year’s event was an outstanding gathering of the Eclipse community, and I am definitely looking forward to this year’s as well.

ESE is a little bit different from EclipseCon, and in some ways even more ambitious. In addition to keynotes and talks, it also adds in workshops and symposia, which provide an opportunity for conversations, rather than the more typical one-way dialogue you get with a talk. Last year’s symposia were very well received, and I expect even more from this year’s.

With great keynotes from Erich Gamma of IBM and Eclipse fame, and Jörg Sievert from SAP Ventures we have something for both the technical and the business audience.

So, if you haven’t already registered, please do. It’s going to be a great community event.

See you there!
