Eclipse Day at the Googleplex

I am excited to announce a new event called ‘Eclipse Day at the Googleplex‘ to be held June 24 at the Googleplex in Mountain View, CA. It will be a half day event that features technical presentations on various Eclipse projects (Equinox, ATF, ECF, CDT and Mylyn) and using Eclipse to build applications for Google Android and GWT. I am also pleased that Michael Gilpin from eBay will be presenting how eBay is using Eclipse. btw, Michael has already written some articles about Eclipse at eBay. It is a great mixture of Eclipse technical content.

Mustafa Isik suggested the idea while he was a summer intern at Google last year and we have great support from people internal to Google. Special thanks to the Google Open Source Program Office for sponsoring the event and making it possible.

It is free to attend the event but you need to register on the wiki. Space is limited so please register early.

    Hi Ian,

    Good to hear that Google is interested in Eclipse! Do you plan to talk with Google Open Source Program Office about adding EPL to the licenses list of Google code project hosting? It seems that Google does not think EPL is widely used as this post shown: http://wagenknecht.org/blog/archives/2008/04/epl-not-popular.html

    Best regards,
    Mike

    Mike,

    It would be great to have EPL added but unfortunately we have not been able to convince Google the error of their ways. I am sure if more people keep asking, they might change their mind. ūüôā
