Eclipse Foundation Kicks Off Seminar Series: “Eclipse In Motion”

  • Educational Seminars Offer Executives and IT Professionals Best Practices for Using Eclipse in the Enterprise

OTTAWA, January 4, 2006 — The Eclipse Foundation today introduced “Eclipse in Motion,” a four-city seminar series focused on using Eclipse in the enterprise. Designed to offer CIOs, IT managers and developers a practical introduction to Eclipse, the seminar will offer best practices for adopting Eclipse as a strategic integration platform, insights into open source licensing and in-depth case studies of how Eclipse and related technologies are successfully being used in enterprises today.

The one-day seminar is comprised of two tracks: a morning session for executives and an afternoon session for developers. The morning session will feature presentations by Carl Zetie, vice president, application development and infrastructure, Forrester Research; Cliff Schmidt, vice president of Legal Affairs, Apache Foundation; and executives from sponsoring Eclipse member companies Exadel, IBM, Serena and Sybase.

In the afternoon, Eclipse developers will be invited to participate in a code clinic where Eclipse technical experts will be on hand to help developers building Eclipse plug-ins or applications built on the Eclipse Rich Client Platform (RCP).

“By helping developers and IT professionals to gain practical, hands-on knowledge of Eclipse, we continue to build on the increasing awareness and momentum surrounding Eclipse,” said Mike Milinkovich, executive director of the Eclipse Foundation. “These seminars highlight the benefits of the Eclipse model and will aide decision makers in planning their continued implementation and growth of Eclipse at all levels of the enterprise.”

The “Eclipse in Motion” seminar series, sponsored by Eclipse member companies, will take place in the following locations:

  • February 7, 2006 San Diego, Calif., (Manchester Grand Hyatt)
  • February 9, 2006 Dallas, Tex., (Adam’s Mark Hotel)
  • February 28, 2006 Raleigh, N.C. (Hilton Durham)
