December 2013

Top projects, plugins and talks for 2013

December is often when people create top 10 lists that reflect on the past year and look into the future. We are also coming up on our 1 year anniversary of the Eclipse newsletter whose mission is to help Eclipse users learn more about the Eclipse community. Therefore this month we have asked some individuals at the Eclipse Foundation to create lists that'll help you find new Eclipse resources.

  • Mike Milinkovich looks into the future to recommend Eclipse projects that you should check out in 2014.
  • Ralph Mueller created a top 10 list of the most popular sessions at EclipseCon Europe.
  • Finally, Ian Skerrett's list looks at the data behind Eclipse Marketplace to create the Top 10 Eclipse Plugins and Top 10 New Eclipse Plugins.

What is your top 10 list for the Eclipse community? Send us a link to your list and we will post it on our social media channels: Twitter, Google+ and Facebook.

Happy Holidays!
