    The news from EclipseCon is starting to come out here and here. We are planning to issue the Foundation press releases Tuesday morning, focusing on RCP, ALM and the PHP IDE. I also expect to see 15-20 press releases from companies announcing Eclipse related news; so expect to see lots...

    I’m getting read to fly out to Santa Clara on Sunday for EclipseCon 2006. This will actually be my first EclipseCon. I never did get a chance to attend in my previous job, but now that I’m the Eclipse Evangelist, attending comes as part of the job. I’ve attended dozens...

    Bjorn surprise me today when he announced that EclipseCon was heading towards a sell-out. I’ve always thought the big Santa Clara Convention Center, no problem…. Well it turns out we only have enough seats to feed between 1400-1500 people. The side effect is that if you were planning on registering...

    Scripted Eclipse RCP…

    Monday, March 13, 2006 - 11:59 by Wayne Beaton
    Last week, I blogged about some work that I’m doing with Eclipse Monkey. I finally found a few minutes to wrap it all up into an RCP application. In doing so, I did have to refactor the Eclipse Monkey code a bit. These changes are focused primarily on extracting the...

    Evan’s Data has release another IDE market survey from November 2005. This survey is free to download, so everyone can take a look. An interesting thing about this survey is that it includes more than just Java IDEs. Microsoft Visual Studio comes out on top, in terms of share, but...

    I have to admit that I really enjoy EclipseCon. OK, so I’ve only been to one of the two so far, but last year really was a killer conference. As of last night we were just about at 1200 registrations, so we know for sure that this year’s event is...

    Thursday, March 9, 2006 - 13:18 by Wayne Beaton
    Got a PHB who needs to know–in non-technical terms–why you should be adopting RCP? Jeff has made the forward from the Eclipse Rich Client Platform book available. In it, Jeff Norris from NASA explains how his organization benefitted from RCP. It’s available here (in PDF format). And by-the-way… I use...
