Want to see Germany in the fall? Here’s how: convince your boss to send you to EclipseCon 2022.
“What is EclipseCon?” we hear some of you ask.
We’ll tell you the same thing that the event’s organizers told us:
“EclipseCon is the leading conference for developers, architects, and open source business leaders to learn about Eclipse technologies, share best practices, and more,” they said. “EclipseCon is our biggest event of the year and connects the Eclipse ecosystem and the industry’s leading minds to explore common challenges and innovate together on open source runtimes, tools, and frameworks for cloud and edge applications, IoT, artificial intelligence, connected vehicles and transportation, digital ledger technologies, and much more.”
“So what the heck is Eclipse?” others might ask.
It’s only the second most popular integrated development environment for Java development. Originally developed by IBM, Eclipse is written mostly in Java and is primary used to develop Java apps, but it’s also used to develop apps in other programming languages by use of plug-ins.
By now, you’re probably getting the picture that this is primarily aimed at developers, architects, open source business leaders, and the like. That assumption would be correct.
Although this is billed as a four day event, those of you with busy calendars only need concern yourselves with the last three days, as Monday is basically a community day that starts with coffee at 8:30 am and finishes with a “meet and greet’ social affair at day’s end. Tuesday, however, will be time to get down to brass tacks, with presentations by experts from major tech organizations, including Red Hat, IBM, Mercedes, Huawei, Ericsson, a plenty more.
A complete look at this year’s schedule is available here. All in all, more than 90 talks are on the slate.
The event is put on by the Eclipse Foundation, which is home to the Eclipse IDE, Jakarta EE, and over 415 open source projects, including runtimes, tools, specifications, and frameworks for cloud and edge applications, IoT, AI, automotive, systems engineering, open processor designs, and many others. The sessions at EclipseCon are chosen by an independent program committee made up of volunteers from the Eclipse community.
