EclipseConEurope.jpgThis 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.

One of the main piece of news this year is that Java 7 Summit will be a co-located event at EclipseCon Europe.  The Summit will feature expert speakers from Oracle and the growing OpenJDK community.

Keynotes

Hardware and Robotic are other big new entries of this edition. Since James Gosling moved from Google to this  new world, we all are waiting for the Keynote of David Cuartielles. He is the co-foundator of  Arduino project, an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software.

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.

As a celebration of Eclipse’s 10th birthday, the Jubula project team  is organizing and hosting a community programming competition at EclipseCon Europe (read more).
