EclipseZone - Your Guide To EclipseCon 2008

  • submit to reddit

On Monday, EclipseCon 2008 kicks off in Santa Clara, and it looks like it's going to be the best yet. Although it kicks off on St Patrick's Day, the Irish national holiday - I'll be working hard to ensure EclipseZone has up-to-date content with all the latest news and announcements from the conference.

Monday is tutorial day, with Tuesday to Thursday being covered by talks on a broad range of some really interesting topics. The following is a list of talks I would recommend.




There's still time to register, if you haven't done so yet. And if you can't get there, every cloud has a silver lining - visit us daily next week and keep up to date with all the latest from Santa Clara.

To the Irish among the readers - Happy St Patricks Day!

For all you Eclipse members out there, don't forget to come to the Members' Reception on Monday at 7:00 pm to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. It will take place outside by the Hyatt Santa Clara’s pool (weather permitting). The reception is being hosted by 4 of our German member companies - brox, Empolis, Innoopract and SOPERA – so it will be St. Patrick’s Day done German style.

The head chef at the Hyatt is German, so he’s planning an authentic menu, complete with bratwurst and sauerkraut. As usual, beers will be a highlight of the evening, including classic German and Irish favourites. There was late-breaking confirmation today that there will be Guinness! No word on whether the beer will be dyed green.

All leprechauns captured at the event will be required to make a donation of gold to the Eclipse Friends program.
