Host an Eclipse 5th Birthday Party

Eclipse is celebrating its 5th birthday on November 7, 2006. It will have been 5 years since Eclipse was first release as open source software. To celebrate, we would like to organize local birthday parties and we need your help.

Here is a list of parties already planned.

If you would like to organize a local Eclipse birthday party, you choose the place, set the time, and organize the venue (maybe a local pub or bar), and the Eclipse Foundation will cover the cost of food and beverage up to $1,000 USD.

In order to host a birthday party you must be an Eclipse committer or an employee of an Eclipse member company. To be reimbursed for your party hosting costs, the Eclipse Foundation will require you to submit receipts after the event and to post photos of the event for sharing with the community.

Please contact Lynn Gayowski at to register your party or for more information.
