Life at Eclipse

Musings on the Eclipse Foundation, the community and the ecosystem

Oracle Keynote on Java Technology and Community at EclipseCon

This year’s EclipseCon has a little bit of that “right time, right place” magic going for it. As a significant conference soon after the oft-delayed closing of the acquisition, it provides a good opportunity for Oracle to talk directly to developers about where they are going to take Java. There is both a technology and a community story to be told, and from the abstract it appears that Steve Harris and Jeet Kaul are going to be tackling both topics. Steve and Jeet are the development execs responsible for driving the Java platform and I, for one, can’t wait to hear what they have to say. Phrases like “rational optimism”, “profound opportunity” and “empowered community” in the abstract have certainly captured my interest.

If you’re looking forward to hearing about the Oracle-Sun strategy for Java’s future, EclipseCon will be the place to be. We’ve extended the early bird registration rates for one extra day, until Monday February 15th, so register now! See you at EclipseCon.
