EclipseCon is our biggest event of the year, and this year’s Modeling Tools and Technologies track promises to be a good one. The track will cover the many Eclipse projects supporting the creation and deployment of modeling tools and low-code/no-code environments. Contributions in the areas of desktop or web-based tools, textual or graphical, model transformation and code generation using technologies such as Theia, Sirius, EMF.cloud, GLSP, Sprotty and many more. Register today so you don’t miss these talks:


Alice's Adventures in Sirius Web land
