Event Goals

  • Detect and resolve interoperability problems between products in the tool chain
  • Create a community of tools providers within the embedded and mobile development sectors
  • Identify areas for development and collaboration within Eclipse
  • Publish helpful "how to's" and source code examples
  • Find new partners and end users

Who Should Attend

  • Organizations that produce, use, or are planning to use solutions for the embedded or mobile sectors and that are utilizing Eclipse as the main tool for development or tool integration point.
  • At least one representative must be a software engineer or technical architect in charge of the product being tested at PluginFest. Technical representatives should arrive prepared to make source code level changes to their product, either directly or with the assistance of their home office, within the time frame of PluginFest. The second representative may be another developer or a product manager.
