3. Eclipse Democamps

26 cities around the world

Nov. 13-Dec. 14, 2007


Eclipse DemoCamps will take place around the world during November and December.  They are an opportunity to show off what’s happening in Eclipse and to meet with local developers.

4. EclipseWorld

Reston, VA

Nov. 6-8, 2007


EclipseWorld started today!



1) Attend the Eclipse Foundation “Meet the Projects” Party on Wed., Nov. 7, 8:00-10:00 pm.  Eclipse project leaders and committers will be on hand to demo their projects and answer your questions. RSVP to attend and reserve a shirt by emailing eclipse-world-party@xxxxxxxxxxx.



5. JavaOne

San Francisco, CA

May 6-8, 2008


Eclipse has previously done a “passport game” at JavaOne, where conference attendees have to gather stamps from Eclipse member company booths in order to collect a t-shirt from Eclipse.  We will look at expanding to an Eclipse Pavilion where member companies would have a pedestal within a coordinated Eclipse Pavilion area.  We will have to check with the JavaOne organizers to see if this is possible and whether the cost is feasible.



1) Submit a proposal for a technical session or BOF by Nov. 16.  Details are at
