Life at Eclipse

Musings on the Eclipse Foundation, the community and the ecosystem

Pity the Poor….

EclipseCon 2008 Program Committee.

I spent a couple of hours yesterday looking through the EclipseCon talk submissions, and I would definitely not want to be in charge of selecting talks. There are simply too many good ones. An embarrassment of riches. A cornucopia of technical info.

230 long talk submissions
134 short talk submissions
108 tutorial submissions
17 Philippe Ombredanne proposals 🙂

Wow! Even allowing for some dups and some withdrawals, that is great showing by the Eclipse community. Thanks to everyone who took the time to provide a submission.

Although the quantity is impressive, the quality is even more so. I encourage you to take a look (and comment) for yourself, but right now I am very confident that EclipseCon 2008 is going to simply rock as a technical conference.

I hope to see you there!

  1. What would be really cool would be a way for users not in the group choosing submissions to build a personalized “virtual” schedule even before the final lineup was determined (like right now).Instantly the popularity and preferred time slots would become apparent. Maybe that could help out the poor slobs who have choose?Better than just voting, I guess, which is ripe for cheating. One could also give data from previous attendees greater weight in the final numbers.
