Life at Eclipse

Musings on the Eclipse Foundation, the community and the ecosystem

Coming Soon: Eclipse Summit Europe

Eclipse Summit Europe is only a few short weeks away. ESE and EclipseCon (EC2011 call for papers is open!) are definitely the two funnest and busiest weeks of the year for me.

Thanks to the Program Chair, Bernd Kolb of SAP and his hard-working Program Committee, this year’s ESE promises to be the best ever. The keynotes alone are going to be hard to beat. In order of appearance we have:

  • Dr. Hendrik Speck (University of Applied Sciences Kaiserslautern) on “Code and Belief“. I saw Dr. Speck speak at an event in Berlin a few months ago and thought his talk was extremely thought provoking.
  • Dr. Jeff Norris (NASA) on “Mission-Critical Agility” will reprise his incredible talk from EclipseCon 2010 — one of the best talks I have ever seen.
  • Dr. Gunter Dueck (IBM) on “The Industrialization of the Services Sector“. I haven’t had the opportunity to see Dr. Dueck speak before, but I’ve heard from several people that he is excellent as well.

In addition, the main technical program has something in it for every budding Eclipse aficionado. There are five tracks, all of which are offering two full days of great talks: Eclipse 4.0 (e4), Embedded, Modeling, Runtime and Other / New & Noteworthy.

Putting on events and conferences is a large part of what we do at the Eclipse Foundation. They are a ton of work, but are absolutely worth it in every way. Each event provides an opportunity for our worldwide community to come together, meet, talk and maybe have a couple of beers. So register now. I find ESE in particular to be a great community event: great technical content with a relaxed and cool vibe. I really hope to see you there!

Oh, and thanks to all of our sponsors! We literally could not do it without you.
