About this podcast

In the last of our series of seven podcasts around the Eclipse Galileo release, I speak with Jeff McAffer, CTO of EclipseSource. The main topic we discuss is p2, with a great introduction to the technology. One of the most interesting parts for me was how it can be used to provision OSGi based applications as well as Eclipse RCP based applications.

We also cover what EclipseSource do and how they're involved in about 10 projects in the Eclipse eco-system.  And as Jeff has been involved in Eclipse for over 10 years, we discuss how Eclipse has changed in that time, and where it's going in the future.
