This year old Eclipse Summit Europe changes his name to EclipseCon Europe and celebrates the 10th birthday of the Eclipse project. The event will kick off a series of birthday parties around the world to celebrate the important milestone.
Another retrospective keynote will be held by former IBM executive John Swainson about the 2001 release of Eclipse into the open-source community. At the time, John was the general manager of the Application Integration and Middleware Group at IBM.
Last but not least we will find Bran Selic that has pioneered the application of model-driven development methods in real-time and embedded applications. Bran will talk about model-based software engineering (MBSE). Modeling has become even more important in Eclipse thanks to EMF project.
According to our taste, we have classified all the accepted talks.
