Join these speakers at Open Community Experience (OCX)

Monday, June 3, 2024 - 13:28 by Shanda Giacomoni

We’re excited to announce some of the early bird talks that will take place at OCX in Mainz, Germany, from 22-24 October 2024. OCX includes several collocated conferences, such as EclipseCon, Open Community for Java, and Open Community for Automotive, among others.

EclipseCon will be the focal point for all things related to the Eclipse IDE platform and developer tools. Open Community for Java will dive deep into Jakarta EE, Adoptium, MicroProfile, and other Java-related topics. Meanwhile, Open Community for Automotive will explore the latest in automotive software, software-defined vehicles, and mobility solutions.

In addition to these key conferences, OCX will feature multiple tracks of sessions that span the breadth of the Eclipse Foundation’s industry collaborations and projects. Attendees can look forward to discussions on embedded IoT and edge computing, open source security, open technologies, and best practices in open source development.

Although the call for proposals is open until June 10, we’re thrilled to give you a sneak peek at some of the talks that our program committees have already accepted.
