Eclipse DemoCamps to Celebrate Ganymede

The Eclipse Foundation is organizing a new series of DemoCamps during the month of June to celebrate the Ganymede release.  The idea behind the DemoCamps is similar to the BarCamp concept - an informal, ad-hoc gathering of people in the Eclipse community.  The Eclipse DemoCamps should encourage individuals to demo the interesting products, applications, tools or widgets they’re building on Eclipse. 

We would like to ask for your help in organizing an Eclipse DemoCamp in your city.  Organizers will be responsible for finding a location (usually an office, university or local pub), providing a projector and screen for the demos and promoting the DemoCamp to the local Eclipse community.  The Eclipse Foundation will sponsor the event up to $250 per city.   More information about being an organizer can be found here.


For this edition of DemoCamps, we are trying something new and are encouraging organizers to find outside corporate sponsorship in addition to Eclipse funding. For any Eclipse member company that sponsors $250 or more, their logo will be posted on the DemoCamp’s wiki page.  All sponsors will also be acknowledged at the DemoCamp itself.

Our hope is that this will be a great way for local Eclipse communities to connect, share ideas and celebrate Ganymede.  We hope you agree and will help volunteer to organize or sponsor an event in your city.  Please feel free to contact me if you are interested or if you have any questions.
