Re: [platform-vision] This week's meeting
- From: "Max Rydahl Andersen" <manderse@xxxxxxxxxx>

- Delivered-to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Once again - I missed this again ;/
I'll ask again - can you please send a calendar invite to the list so it
shows up no matter in ones calendar if one is drowning in email ;)
Any chance of a summary of yesterdays call ?
btw. 11 Eastern is generally much better for me than 12 eastern.
The Planning Council call is scheduled for 12 eastern time, so I'm
going to change the timing of our call to 11 am ET on Wednesday. Is
this particularly bad for anybody? We can move this earlier in the day
North America 1-866-569-4992
Then enter the participant conference extension: 430, then enter pin
Alternatively, SIP clients can call 430@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx, then
enter pin 4718
Our last two calls just didn't work, so I have no minutes to post. The
one thing that we did decide was to skip last week. I dropped the ball
in terms of communicating this decision.
It's probably time to reset this discussion.
I wrote a piece on the vision for the newsletter . I think that I
stayed true to our discussion to date, but did modify some of the
words and ordering of our working statement. If I've said anything
horribly wrong, let me know.
You'll notice that I've started referring to this as a vision for the
Eclipse Developer's Platform to further disambiguate this from the
Eclipse Platform project and reinforce that we're talking about a
development platform, not everything else that Eclipse is and
I believe that the vision boils down to this:
Our vision is to build leading desktop and cloud-based development
solutions, but more importantly to offer a seamless development
experience across them. Our goal is to ensure that developers will
have the ability to build, deploy, and manage their assets using the
device, location and platform best suited for the job at hand. Eclipse
projects, the community, and ecosystem will all continue to invest in
and grow desktop Eclipse. Full-function cloud-based developer tools
delivered in the browser will emerge and revolutionize software
Continued focus on quality and performance, out-of-the-box experience,
Java 9, and first class Maven and Gradle support also figure
prominently in our vision of a powerful developerâs platform.
We have an open discussion regarding JVM languages support. I think
that it would be a good addition. Adding it does not imply that any
specific Eclipse project will do any work. This leads me to the
I'd like to spend most of our time on Wednesday talking strategy. How
do we make this happen?
* Actively recruit resources for vision-fulfilling technologies
* Actively recruit JVM language projects
* Focus EF resources on vision-fulfilling technologies
* Focus on user experience; make the user the first priority (i.e.
* Focus on out-of-the-box experience
* Fix the little things
* Fix some big things
* Focus on performance
* Specific marketing focus
* Get the Che project building at Eclipse
* Facilitate coordination between Che and Eclipse Platform developers
Obviously "focus" can't be the right word if we use it too many times.
Let me know immediately if the date/time do not work for you. Feel
free to start discussing any of these topics in the mailing list.
