From October 23 to 25, 2012 the Eclipse Foundation will hold the 6th edition of the annual European Eclipse Conference.
EclipseCon Europe is all about community – learning, exploring, sharing and collaborating on the latest ideas and information about Eclipse. Contributors, adopters, extenders, service providers, consumer, business and research organizations alike, gather to share their expertise and learn from each other.
Networking activities lead to synergies in the community, from giving and receiving help on specific technical issues to generating new business opportunities. Sponsors of Eclipse Summit are an integral part of the entire event, participating in an exchange from all areas of their organizations from technical to management.
Last year we celebrated Eclipse’s 10th anniversary together with more than 550 attendees at EclipseCon Europe. This year the conference theme is open innovation: how enterprises, researchers and other organizations use Eclipse to develop innovative products and solutions.
We are also co-hosting the European OSGi community event and are extending a special welcome to the International OSGi community. And, again we are proud to have a solid technical program, but we won’t just be networking and listening to technical talks. Let us surprise you with our evening program! Details will be published in the early part of October.

How much does the workshop cost? Nothing, it’s free! You just need to be excited!

Can men attend? Yes, but you need to be accompanied by an interested lady. Also, girls are given a priority.
I know how to program – How can I help? We’re also looking for people to be coaches. They will have a two-three hour workshop before the event to walk you through the curriculum.
FOSDEM is a free and non-commercial event that offers open source communities a place to meet, share ideas and collaborate. It is renowned for being highly developer-oriented and brings together 5000+ geeks from all over the world.
FOSDEM will take place in Brussels, Belgium on the 2nd and 3rd of February 2013.
We invite proposals for devrooms and main track talks:
Main Track Talks
The main tracks host high-quality seminars for a broad and technical audience. Every track is organized around a theme (security, kernel, collaboration, …). They are held in the two biggest auditoria and last 50 minutes. Each of the talks is given by a speaker who gets their travel and accommodation costs reimbursed.
To apply for a FOSDEM Main Track talk, visit call for main speakers.
To suggest a main track speaker that we should invite, mail program<>fosdem.org.
A devroom is a ‘developer room’ in which open source communities can organize their own schedule, made of presentations, brainstorming and hacking sessions. Our goal is to stimulate developer collaboration and cross-pollination between projects.
Each year we receive more requests than we can host. To better achieve our goals, preference will be given to *proposals involving multiple, collaborating projects*. Projects with similar goals/domains that make separate requests will be asked to co-organize a devroom under their common theme.
To propose organizing a devroom, visit call for devrooms.
Note! Linux distributions should apply to the dedicated distribution mini-conference.
- 1 October: deadline for devroom proposals
- mid October: devroom announcements
- 1 November: deadline main track proposals
- mid November: main track announcements
- 2 and 3 February: FOSDEM 2013
A message from a Genova JUG member…
my name is Giampiero Granatella, I am a member of the JUG Genova (Italy) and I work at ManyDesigns.
Our company produces the open source software ManyDesigns Portofino, written in Java. For the upcoming launch of the new version, Portofino 4, we are contacting members of international JUGs to propose the evaluation of our framework as a preview.
Portofino allows to create a complete web application automatically, starting from an existing database schema.
The framework supports CRUD operations, CMS features, an interactive calendar, Groovy actions modifiable on the fly, Liquibase (incremental db schema evolution), security with Apache Shiro and much more.
Programming is performed online and developing new features does not require to continually redeploy like it usually happens with traditional web application development.
We’d like to have your opinion!!!
If you’re interested, you can download Portofino here.
If you want support in using it or if you want to provide us with feedback you can use our mailing list: manydesigns-portofino[at]googlegroups.com
You can follow news and improvements on Twitter.
I remain at your disposal for any clarification.
Goodbye, and I hope to hear back from you soon!
