If you have some extra time, check out our top 10 list for D.C.; some great sightseeing is only 30 minutes away by Metro from the conference venue.

Second Round of FEEP RFPs Underway

The Eclipse Foundation is seeking proposals for the second list of enhancements and improvements to the IDE/Platform under FEEP, our development program funded exclusively through donations made by individuals to the Friends of Eclipse campaign.

Proposals can be submitted directly from the list of Approved Development Efforts. Further details and discussion regarding the proposal process will be done using the ide-dev@xxxxxxxxxxx mailing list; so subscribe to this list for more information.

The deadline for submitting proposals for this first cycle is Thursday, February 11, 2016.

Propose a Talk for EclipseCon France

EC France logoMake June and sunny weather seem closer by submitting a talk for EclipseCon France! This EclipseCon focuses on the Eclipse working groups and our modeling, embedded systems, Internet of Things, and related communities of interest.

It's also an excellent time to sign up as a sponsor; the best options are available early.
The 2016 conference has been extended, with a full day of workshops on Monday, June 7, and two full days of sessions on June 8 and 9. Plan to stay an extra day and attend the Unconference on Friday, June 10. We look forward to seeing you in Toulouse!
