Friends of Eclipse,
Eclipse is an open source community that benefits millions of developers around the world each and every day! During the month of September, we are asking you to give back to our wonderful open source community. All donations will be used to improve Eclipse technology. Your contribution counts!
We thank you for this gesture, and for giving back to our community.
Eclipse is turning 5! It was November 7, 2001 when IBM first released Eclipse as an open source project. To celebrate, a number of activities are being organized for the Eclipse community.
An electronic birthday card has been setup to allow individuals in the the Eclipse community to show their support for Eclipse. Everyone in the Eclipse community is encouraged to sign the Eclipse birthday card.
Individuals signing the card before December 1, 2006 will qualify for a random draw to win one of 20 Eclipse sweaters.
Product Hall of Fame
Over the last five years, the Eclipse community has built hundreds, if not thousands, of Eclipse based products. Therefore, an Eclipse Product Wall of Fame has been setup to showcase these products. Organizations and individuals that have created Eclipse based products and plug-ins are invited to add their solution to the Product Wall of Fame.
Eclipse Birthday PartiesThere are over 25 local Eclipse birthday parties organized in cities around the world to celebrate this event. Locations, dates, and RSVP links can be found here.
Please RSVP if you are planning to attend a party. The parties are informal gatherings of Eclipse members, committers, users and general enthusiasts, so please invite your colleagues and customers to join you.
