KPIT Cummins has just joined the Eclipse Foundation as an Add-in Provider. This is the first time a company in India has joined the Foundation and I hope there will be many more. It is also interesting to see that KPIT claims to have reduced their development costs by 40% due to the use of Eclipse.
There is a large Eclipse community in India. The new Eclipse Magazine is published in India. Dilip Thomas is the managing director and he is also hosting an Eclipse 5th birthday party in Bangalore. If you are in Bangalore and want to participate in the festivities, make sure you RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
