I know some of you already finished planning for the next few months. There are a couple of interesting events I’ll attend which might be of interest for you. Thus, I thought sharing won’t hurt.
FOSDEM (Feb. 4 – 5, Brussels, Belgium)
I’ve never been in Brussels before. I’ve also never been at FOSDEM before. Andrew told me about his plan to generate some nice Eclipse buzz there. Well, it looks like that will turn out great. Mike will be there too. We’ll have an Eclipse stand for people to show some projects and talks about Eclipse and we’ll also give a few talks about Eclipse. Mine will be about EclipseRT.
EclipseCon (March 26 – 29, Reston, Virginia, USA)
Ok, this one is a classic (for me). I’ve been there before. You gotta have to be there! However, this year my flight to EclipseCon will be shorter. The event moved from the west coast to the east coast. Frankly, I always wondered about switching location away from Santa Clara. But I’ll also miss San Francisco. It’s a beautiful city always worth a visit. Yet it took me three EclipseCons until I finally visited it in 2009 for the first time. I may need to find a new event in that area. Anyway, I’ll give one of the many tutorials there (Dynamic Server Applications with EclipseRT).
JAX (April 16-20, Mainz, Germany)
Also bit of a classic, I like that event. It’s packed with lots of sessions and people. I’ll talk about developing cloud applications with Eclipse Gyrex. Our first major version (1.0) is only weeks away and that talk will be a great opportunity to learn more about Gyrex and see how we use it to solve some interesting problems.
Hope to see you soon at any of the events!
