|[birt-dev] EclipseCon Submissions
In the Long talk section we have 5 talks for four slots. I think we need to include the Introduction to BIRT 2.2 talk (should this be modified to be Introduction to BIRT 2.3?)
Of the remaining talks we have two from IBM, one from the OpenMRS/Google Summer of Code this summer, and one from Actuate on advanced reporting.
I would propose that take Virgil's submission on Advanced BIRT Customization (Expressions and Event Handlers) to either the Basic Report Dev (John Ward) tutorial or the Integration (me) tutorial. It could go either way. We can discuss at the next PMC.
If you have time to review the Long Talks, please leave a comment indicating your preferences (yes you would need to create a new login). Links to all of the talks are provided below.
At a minimum, let me know if you agree with my plan to accept the IBM talks and move Virgil to the tutorial with John Ward.

Guys, Talking to David Rosenbacher, he may be willing to have Pierre T and/or Mica contribute if that helps. Scott, I think we had originally suggested Pierre T as a presenter for one of the 10 min talks. Maybe Pierre and/or Mica would be willing to do one of the longer talks as well. I'm copying David here. Paul.

Jason has been diving into the Charting APIs lately and would like to take that on for the Charting Tutorial. Virgil has also been really diving into Scripting and is going to do a full hour that is focused on expressions, event handlers, and parameters, which should fill a really important gap. The one piece that we are still missing would be a really good long talk (1 hour) that is focused on building charts. This would consist of: - discuss how data is supplied to a chart - going through all of the chart types discussing how they could be used - highlighting some of the 'neat' features of each - how to create hover over text - hyper-linking - chart event handler Is there any chance that you could put together a proposal and submit to the EclipseCon submission site here: https://eclipsecon.greenmeetingsystems.com/ You will have to login and set up a user profile before you submit your talk. Scott ps. Still looking to see your Short Talk submission that covers Re-Use (libraries and styles) Wenbin He wrote:Scott: I discussed this with Krishna. He is willing to take these two chart related sessions for this year's EclipseConf. By the way, thanks for organizing the meeting. -wenbin -----Original Message----- From: Scott Rosenbaum [mailto:scottr@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Wed 11/14/2007 12:25 PM To: David Michonneau; Wenbin He Cc: Paul Clenahan; Wenfeng Li; Jason Weathersby Subject: RE: EclipseCon Wenbin, Last year at EclipseCon David Michonneau did a really nice job presenting on Charts. I think our community really appreciates having someone with David's excellent communication skills and deep product knowledge doing the presentations. As you can see below, I have asked David to speak again at this years EclipseCon in March. He has asked that I run this by you. I hope that you can find a way to let David present again this year. Scott Rosenbaum Ps: I am asking since I am on the EclipseCon program committee for the Reporting track. _____ From: Scott Rosenbaum [mailto:scottr@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Tuesday, November 13, 2007 12:38 PM To: 'dmichoneau@xxxxxxxxxxx' Cc: 'Paul Clenahan'; 'Wenfeng Li' Subject: EclipseCon David, I don't know if you were aware of this, but the deadline forEclipseConsubmissions is rapidly approaching (November 19). The PMC and I were hoping that you would be willing to do a couple of talks on charting at this year's EclipseCon. Chart API Tutorial Basically it would be the same as last year's presentation. I thinkthatthings went really well last year, my only feedback would be that itwasperhaps a little too deep, but I think that in general everyone wasveryhappy with the content and presentation. BIRT Chart Usage Long Talk Jason Weathersby came up with this and I think it is a really good idea. To often our BIRT talks tend to really gloss over charts. We quicklyshowbuilding a chart, flash all the chart types, and then do a simple bar chart demo. The idea here would be to go through each of the chart types explaining how to get the most out of the chart. This includes going over some of the more obscure references in the designer and how to use the scripts. Please let me know if you will not be able to do this, or get the submission done in by the deadline. The site for submissions is:Thanks, Scott Rosenbaum
