We are very excited to announce a new event, called Eclipse Banking Day in NYC, on December 9, 2008 in New York City. This event is for architects, development managers and senior developers who work for a financial institution and use Eclipse. It is an opportunity to learn from Eclipse experts and discover what leading financial institutions, such as JP Morgan, Morgan Stanley and RBC Capital, are doing with Eclipse.
So why are we doing a Banking Day? Over the last couple of years, it has been apparent that Eclipse is used extensively in the financial industry. Financial institutions are using Eclipse as a platform and various Eclipse frameworks for their internal applications. It is also apparent that a lot of the institutions are doing similar things with Eclipse. It just seems like a great opportunity for peer to peer knowledge sharing, learning and collaboration with the industry. Our hope is that this event will be a great starting point.
Eclipse Day in NYC builds on a very successful event we did in Frankfurt in September. We also plan to do a Banking Day in London, most likely in early February, so if you would like to participate in the London event, send me an e-mail.
Of course we are getting a lot of help with this event. Morgan Stanley has agreed to host the event at their location in Manhatten. Also, our sponsors Actuate and Sybase are helping to make it possible to have it as a no-cost event.
If you are interested in attending, register now. Space is limited and on a first come first serve basis.
