[img_assist|nid=1337|title=|desc=|link=none|align=right|width=314|height=91]On Monday, EclipseCon 2008 kicks off in Santa Clara, and it looks like it's going to be the best yet. Although it kicks off on St Patrick's Day, the Irish national holiday - I'll be working hard to ensure EclipseZone has up-to-date content with all the latest news and announcements from the conference.
