As I'm writing this, Eclipse Summit Europe 2010 is merely hours away and everyone is getting excited to get there and meet Eclipse family.
I think the program committee have done a great job at putting together an exciting conference program with lots of technical sessions, interactive tutorials and inspiring keynotes.
As a special treat for smart phone users, we're offering a conference schedule app for iPhone, Android and all other smart phones that come with a browser. Besides reviewing the conference schedule and getting to know the speakers you can use the apps to create your very own personal conference schedule. Usually, conference attendees will use the printed conference program to mark their favorite talks - and then leave their personalized copy of the program in their hotel room or elsewhere in the conference halls!
This will probably not happen with the smart phone app, although I can recall somebody lost their iPhone at this year's EclipseCon...
Without further ado, here's a preview of the iPhone app in action:
You can download the iPhone app from the App Store. It is available world-wide and we even have a few downloads from Singapore, Korea and India already! For your convenience, here's the link to the app.
We also prepared a version for Android users. Here's how it will look like on your Android device:
Head over to the Android Marketplace and search for "eclipse summit", or use your barcode scanner:
The mobile web app will be available from the Wifi landing page at the conference venue. Rumor has it even BlackBerry users will get a native app. In the meantime, use the mobile web site.
Using these applications, you'll be able to put together your Eclipse Summit Europe 2010 in no time. Enjoy!
The iPhone, Android and mobile web apps have been built by a dedicated team of software engineers at itemis I have the pleasure to work with. If you want to learn how we build applications like these, attend our sessions:
- Tuesday, 14:00 - Mobile Development Symposium
- Thursday 10:30 - Models To Go: How We Built a DSL for Mobile Apps With Tools From the Eclipse
the your conference!
