The closer we get, the more exiting it is.

The conference is packed with lots of interesting content. I’m also looking forward to the new special days at EclipseCon which are new this year. Read more about EclipseCon and why you should attend on Ian Skerrett’s blog and also on the EclipseCon website.
FWIW, I’ll give two talks myself this year:
Unshackling Mylyn from the desktop
Grand Peninsula A – Tuesday, March 18, 2014 – 13:30 to 14:05
Andrew Eisenberg and myself been working on a prototype to extend Mylyn from the Eclipse IDE into web IDEs. While doing that, Andrew also came up with a few other interesting extensions using the same open web APIs to bring Mylyn into basically any other application. That’s pretty cool. There will be some slides in the beginning and then a full set of demos.
Gerrit reviews from within Eclipse
Grand Peninsula C – Tuesday, March 18, 2014 – 16:15 to 16:50
This one was originally proposed by Ericsson but the speaker isn’t able to attend EclipseCon. However, I was involved in the work that happened last year from the beginning and it’s now available in Mylyn Reviews. With the Gerrit dashboard now being available within Eclipse it’s no longer necessary to switch between the web and Eclipse back and forth when doing code reviews.
For me personally, it really is like a big family anniversary. It will be my ninth EclipseCon in North America and I’m pretty sure it’s not getting any less interesting then my first one. I also look forward to the Hyatt, which I never been at before.

See you all there on Sunday and throughout the whole week!
