Eclipse DemoCamp Jena

Just in case you didn’t know, we had our DemoCamp yesterday in Jena. Needless to say, it was a fantastic event. We had about fifty attendees and seven demos of fifteen minutes each. It was me using yellow and red cards to make sure they stay in time. 🙂

Sascha had the pleasure of giving a few opening words.

Steffen showed us how to use Xtext to simplify writing test cases using a DSL.

Mike demonstrated how a lawyer can build an Eclipse RCP application for generating employers’ references without writing any line of code.

Then Matthias introduced us into the world of Git and the Eclipse Git integration.

Jochen – the guy with the three phones – used the Eclipse SDK to develop an Android conference call management app.

Myself talked about Eclipse on servers.

Christoph demoed what that really means. He wrote an application that uses Equionx/Gyrex and allows to upload and manage bundles at runtime through a web interface.

Enrico talked about GenGMF – a modeling framework for easier generation of GMF editors.

Last but not least, a guy with the only Eclipse t-shirt had some nice closing words.

Thank you everybody for coming and thank you all presenters for your great demos. You can view all pictures of the event here.

EclipseCon Fever

It’s that time of the year again. Although it will be my fifth EclipseCon, it’s still as exciting as the first one, getting there, meet the community, discover and listen to the new stuff.

I'm speaking @ EclipseCon 2010

Can’t wait to see you there! Oh and I’ll fly FRA-YYC-SFO this time because it will be SFO-YYZ-FRA on my way back with an overnight stay in downtown Toronto (Friday, March 26th). I’m really looking forward to meet old friends there. 🙂

It’s time for a Stammtisch!

Yay! Ralph Mueller is in town so it’s time for a Stammtisch! Some weeks ago, I invited Ralph to Jena – the eCommerce captial of Germany.

Ralph will have a talk about the Eclipse Foundation and Open Source in general. I also invited him to get to know the TowerByte e.G. TowerByte is a consortium of 22 companies here at Jena all working together in the Jena Tower doing some crazy cool stuff with programming.

The talk will be in the 29th floor of the Jena Tower at 4pm. After that there will be time for a nice Q&A session. The Stammstisch is scheduled for 7pm at the Cafe Stilbruch.
