Eclipse in Motion: A four city tour

Thursday, January 26, 2006 - 12:44 by Wayne Beaton

I’m gearing up fo the Eclipse in Motion seminar series. I’m running the afternoon technical session with assistance from some very experienced Eclipse developers. The format of the technical session will be very loose. I’m not planning to deliver very much slideware, but rather will be soliciting input from the audience to determine what we’re going to cover. I’m bringing some slides to cover as many contingencies as possible, and we’ll use ’em as we need ’em.

I’m really looking forward to this, because the format will be far more relaxed that what I normally get to deliver at a conference: we’re hoping to break into small groups, roll up our sleeves, and actually get some real work done. We’re keeping the attendance numbers small so you can get some real value out of the session.

I’m being joined in San Diego (February 7th) by Wassim Melhem from IBM and Cliff Collins from Sybase. In Dallas (Febrary 9th), Chris Aniszczyk and Douglas Pollock from IBM along with Rob Cernich from Sybase will be on hand. Chris will also be joining me in Raleigh (February 28th) along with IBM colleagues Pat McCarthy and David Williams and John Graham and Karl Reti from Sybase. John and Karl will continue onto Altlanta (March 2) and be joined by John Arthorne (who you may know as one of the authors of Eclipse 3.0 FAQs). For the February 9th and 28th sessions, Chris (who is currently working on a eRCP Redbook) will be showing off some cool devices running Eclipse applications.

If you want to meet some of the big brains developing on Eclipse, you should attend one or more of these sessions. Be warned that this session is not intended for folks who are new to Eclipse. We’re expecting that you have experience building Eclipse-based applications and either need some help from the experts or want discuss your issues with like-minded individuals. Bring your laptop and your issues. We’ll work through them.
