Leaving for Toulouse

The next couple of days I will be in Toulouse.

What's happening there?

On Wednesday, the Eclipse Auto and Polarsys Industry Working Groups will conduct their Face-To-Face meetings, in the morning they'll meet separately and in the afternoon they will get together. The most interesting topic of the joint meeting will be the progress made in the Automotive IWG's work package 5.

And then on Thursday I'll attend the Eclipse Day Toulouse, New Edition. Don't be afraid, I won't do a presentation, but my colleague Ian Skerrett will talk about 10 years of Eclipse and beyond.

Then technical talks all day, covering a variety of Eclipse related technical topics.

Hope we all will have a good time!

Dear Friends of Eclipse

I cordially invite you to our Eclipse Demo Camp Juno (Summer 2012) series.

As every year, many organizations in Europe have volunteered to organize a demo camp in their city. Where and when? You find out on our Wiki page when the excitement comes to your town!

What is a Demo Camp?
It's an informal "After-Work" event, where you'll see a lot of code, and hardly any PowerPoint slides! Before, during and after the talks is enough time to network, have a drink and a bite to eat.

What is your role?
Well, you can either participate, listen, eat and drink and have a good time, or you can present what you have. Please add yourself to the respective wiki page or contact the local organizers to either register as a participant or as a speaker.

New and Noteworthy Locations
I'd like to point you to locations that don't have a long history yet. They need your participation, and they need the exciting community presenters, so please take a look and see if you want to come (only demo camps with fixed date and location):

  • Manchester (UK):
  • Illmenau (Germany):
  • Nuremberg (Germany):
  • Cluj-Napoca (Romania):
I look forward to meeting many of you in May and June!
