EclipseCon 2011 Idol Contest

Hey guys, this year at EclipseCon 2011 we’re going to do something new, EclipseCon Idol. It’s a contest where nine EclipseCon attendees will present in Ignite Style a topic that is interesting to them. It can be about Eclipse technology, but it does not have to be. The only requirement is that humor and comedy need to be a key part of your presentation. To see a good ignite-style presentation, check out this one from The Oatmeal

To participate in EclipseCon Idol, please contact for full details. There are only nine spots available. We are looking for humor, so talks like “Why Modeling is taking over the world” will not be accepted. Good examples may include “Why my cats would make great developers”, “Why authoring tech books is like working at McDonalds” and “You too can be arrogant by knowing a useless dated programming language.” I hope you enjoy it, it should definitely be entertaining after some frozen beverages!

As a reminder, it’s the last week for early registration for EclipseCon 2011 – prices go up February 14. After you register, be sure to book your hotel room right away as the hotel is filling up fast and you want to be as close to the Hyatt bar as possible.
