EclipseCon 2020 is October 19-22

If you haven’t already registered for EclipseCon 2020, take a minute to reserve your spot today. This year’s EclipseCon is a virtual event, and there’s no fee to attend, but space is limited, so don’t delay.

EclipseCon kicks off with Community Day on October 19. Attending Community Day sessions and round tables are a great way to reconnect with the communities you’re already involved in, and explore opportunities to participate in new projects and working groups.

The week continues with a great lineup of informative and helpful sessions from Eclipse community experts. With 10 conference tracks to choose from, we’re sure there’s at least one session that will interest every Eclipse community member. Here are just a few of the conference tracks at this year’s event:

  • Cloud native Java
  • IoT and edge
  • Java and Java development tools (JDT)
  • Open Service Gateway Initiative (OSGi)
  • Web and desktop tools and IDEs

Get all the registration details and register now.

Also, keep an eye on our blog. Over the coming weeks, we’ll be highlighting sessions from several conference tracks and providing tips on how to get the most from your virtual EclipseCon experience.

The Jakarta EE 9 Tools Vendor Datasheet is Now Available

With the Jakarta EE 9 General Availability (GA) release almost finalized, a growing number of tools vendors are implementing the namespace change. Recently, the Jelastic PaaS team announced it is actively working to support Jakarta EE 9 in its cloud platform.

To help these vendors make the transition, the Jakarta EE community has developed a datasheet summarizing the namespace migration challenge and opportunity.

Tools vendors that take advantage of Jakarta EE 9 to implement the new namespace can migrate faster and more cost effectively than those who wait until the Jakarta EE 10 release as Jakarta EE 10 will also include new features, enhancements, and other major changes.

The datasheet describes:

  • The key elements of the Jakarta EE 9 release for tools vendors
  • Vendor implementation roadmaps
  • The list of affected packages

The Friends of Jakarta EE Monthly Call is For Everyone

The Friends of Jakarta EE monthly calls are by the community, for the community. These calls are held on the fourth Wednesday of every month and are an opportunity for the Jakarta EE community to get together virtually and talk with one another.

The calls play no formal role inJakarta EE Working Group activities. The people who attend are the right people, the topics discussed are the right topics, and the outcomes are the right outcomes.

The next call is Wednesday, August 26 at 11:00 a.m. EDT. You’ll find the connection details on theJakarta EE community calendar.

The Eclipse SAM IoT Research Conference is September 17-18

The Eclipse SAM IoT virtual conference will bring together industry experts and researchers who are working on the next generation of IoT with a focus on:

  • Security and privacy
  • Artificial intelligence and analytics
  • Digital twins and modeling

These innovations provide the groundwork for next-generation IoT solutions that enable smart factories, smart cities, critical infrastructure, and cooperative service robotics.

IoT Developer Survey Results are Coming Soon

The 2020 IoT Developer Survey closed on July 10 so watch for the results to be available.

This is the first year the survey included questions about how developers are incorporating edge computing technologies into their IoT solutions. With the next generation of IoT applications extending to the network edge, and strong momentum in edge technologies at the Eclipse Foundation, the survey results will be interesting and insightful.

With more than 1,600 survey responses, the results will give everyone in the IoT ecosystem — from original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), software vendors, and hardware manufacturers to service providers, enterprises, and individual developers — a better understanding of the latest IoT solutions and service development trends. They’ll also have a clear view of how these trends impact their strategies and businesses.
