A Conference for Eclipse Heads
By Gorkem Ercan, program committee
Ever since the first EclipseCon in 2004, held at Disneyland, Eclipse has had a conference in the US. I missed all the Disney music in 2004, so my first EclipseCon was in 2005. Since then, I have presented at various EclipseCons. Throughout the years, I saw the varying interests of EclipseCon audiences. It is always a challenge to form an EclipseCon program that is equally interesting to both developers of Eclipse technology and users Eclipse users.
This year the job has become a bit easier. To serve various interests, EclipseCon is teaming up with Devoxx US and becoming Eclipse Converge.
As part of the program committee for Eclipse Converge, my goal is to shape a program in the spirit of the early EclipseCons with the talks concentrated around building and innovating Eclipse projects. If you have talks that are deep into Eclipse technology, please submit them. I know I will be voting for them. And who knows; maybe we can bring the Disney music back to EclipseCon next year!
