    Eclipse Awards
    Each year the Eclipse Foundation gives out Community Awards to honour individuals, projects and technologies that make Eclipse a vibrant community. The call for nominations in 10 categories is now open.

    All nominations are due by January 29, 2010. Winners will be announced in a ceremony at EclipseCon in March.

    Join the Eclipse in the Large Webinar

    IT departments of large enterprises face unique challenges deploying Eclipse to thousands, and even tens of thousands, of their developers. Join us on December 14, 2009 for a webinar that will include speakers from Cisco, Morgan Stanley and eBay about some of the key challenges they face, and steps they have taken to address these issues.
