It’s my first out of two days at FOSDEM 2012. It took us quite a ride to get from the hotel to the ULB. We tried to order a taxi but the people at the reception told us that it would take at least 1.5 hours till a taxi arrives. Luckily, Mike and Andrew know someone who has been at FOSDEM a couple of times before. He guided us safely to ULB using a combination of walking, metro, tram and more walking.
We quickly setup an Eclipse stand over there and Mike, Andrew and myself are showing demos and talking to people. BTW, thanks to the FOSDEM organizer to have it well prepared so that we just needed to setup our banner and our notebooks for the demos.
So far we have a great mixture of questions from developers using Eclipse for their day-to-day work, programming questions of Eclipse plug-in developers and people interested in Orion. There are also people stepping by that have no questions – they introduce themselves as happy Eclipse users and appreciate what the committers of the various projects have built over time. Thanks for those kind words folks!
