Have you submitted something to EclipseCon?

EclipseCon 2008 is closing submissions on Monday, November 19th so there’s not much time left to submit something. The PDE team has submitted its annual plug-in development tutorials:

Being on the EclipseCon Program Committee, I’m going to do my best to try something new this year with the tutorial order. I’m thinking that the introductory Plug-in Development tutorials done by the PDE team should take place in the morning. In the afternoon, there will be a tutorial on eRCP followed by one on RAP. This effectively would allow a tutorial attendee to get a taste of three different runtime environments that Eclipse targets:

  • Desktop (RCP)
  • Embedded (eRCP)
  • Server (RAP)

Where else can you do that? This also traces the evolution of Eclipse from just being some tooling platform to a viable runtime for various types of applications. It’s my hope that the tutorial attendees who went through this track of tutorials would come away that Eclipse isn’t just about tools anymore and that there’s a lot of power in reusing your skills and assets to develop against three different runtime environments. All of this in just one day!

Do people think this is a good idea? If so, I’ll see what I can do to make it happen.

Oh, and please submit something to EclipseCon if you haven’t already 🙂

    I’ve submitted an EclipseCon tutorial on Building Applications with OSGi Services and the Service Activator Toolkit (SAT) which I’ll be co-presenting with Paul Vanderlei. Last year the boys from Band XI did a great tutorial that used SAT, so I’m hoping that there will be plenty of interest once more. Paul and I will be sharing our experience and best practices for building dynamic OSGi applications using services.
