We are pretty active in Eclipse:
- building the technology to generate code or text from models
- lowering the "system" versus "doc" barrier
- providing a cool UI generation technology to pimp your editors
- enabling model to model transformations
- building the Modeling package
- enabling team work on models using your favorite SCM
- making sure graphical Ecore modeling is still a reality (HELP WELCOME)
- mentoring new projects
- reporting and fixing bugs on several other projects.
- organizing or sponsoring Eclipse related events
I'd love to show all these things during EclipseCon, especially considering things are happening for every single project listed here(*). There is just not enough time and many other interesting things to cover in such a short event but feel free to come and talk to us during the conference. On the other hand we are giving several talks worth mentionning :
You did not knew Acceleo was an implementation of an OMG standard ? Stéphane will present it during the Eclipse/OMG Workshop on Sunday.
15:55 – 16:20
Eclipse is a best platform to build tools. Eclipse Modeling makes things even easier, but why would you need tools ? Aren't they available already ? Well, generic tools suitable for any use case are hard to make, you might want to use a given technology and not having any tool. Good news is Eclipse Modeling enables you to build a dedicated tool in no time. We'll start the EclipseCon conference with a tutorial so that you learn how, leading you through an example tool to build a web app powered by localstorage, Backbone.js and, JQuery.
Meet Stéphane and me on Monday, 13:00 – 16:00 in Lake Anne B
If you're interested in industrial collaboration to provide long term and very long term support for Eclipse technologies, the Polarsys talk on Tuesday is for you.
Meet Gael on Tuesday, 17:00 – 17:50 in Reston Suites B
If you're more interested in technologies, modularity and dynamicity, Mikael is sharing an experiment on bringing EMF in a multi-tenant and dynamic world while trying to reduce API breakages to a minimum.
3MF : EMF To the infinity ... and beyond !
Meet Mikael on Tuesday, 17:00 – 17:50 in Lake Thoreau
If you're into Agile and ALM and don't want to give-up on design documentation, Alex will present the Mylyn Intent project :
Meet Alex on Wednesday, 10:30 – 11:15 in Regency Ballroom A
In a nutshell, it's gonna be legendary :)
(*) I guess I'll should also blog more to share what's happening.
