Two more days

All is set and organized, I was told by the fabulous Anne Jacko yesterday evening.

The registration numbers numbers look all right, I was told by Anne as well.

The EclipseCon band - well I called and all members are healthy, the current flu epidemic that has hit my town didn't get to them.

Wireless seems to be better than ever, Anne tells me.

So it looks like everything is in good order.

But still, I'm sort of nervous.

Welcome the University of Milano Bicocca to the Eclipse Foundation

I would like to welcome our new associate member University of Milano Bicocca.

The department of computer science has for many years contributed interesting research based on Eclipse technology, we have met at several occasions.

In 2011, the DISC has also been the host of the Academic Eclipse Day Italy where I had the honor to be invited as a speaker.

I appreciate all the work that the universities throughout Italy do in the Eclipse eco system and I hope to see more of their research become available in products and open source projects.

October Travel

Arrived in Stuttgart just now for the Amalthea meeting. If you care about embedded multicore applications and model driven development in Automotive, you better check this project.

Tomorrow a trip to Zurich (Switzerland) for the first Eclipse Stammtisch there - can you believe it took 10 years to get to this initial event? Thanks to the folks from Scout project to get this going.

On Sunday I fly to Bilbao, Spain for the second edition of the Eclipse Embedded Day Spain. Last year I only participated through Skype, so this year I look forward to attend in person (supposedly it is warmer than in Zwingenberg too).

And so it goes on in October - no remorse:

On October 21st I have the pleasure to speak at NuxeoWorld in Paris, the week after I will attend the ITEA2 / Artemis Co-Summit in Helsinki. And just when I get back I'll head together with my colleague Wayne Beaton to Leuven in Belgium for a special Eclipse event the Belgium Java user group has organized.

Am I on the road or what?
