Hours Away from Eclipse Summit India

Having taken the baby steps (Eclipse Demo Camp, Eclipse Day), it’s the time to take the bigger stage to create the Eclipse footprint among  the developers community in India. This is the first Eclipse summit in India so it’s an opportunity to interact and learn from some of the most celebrated Eclipse Contributors. It is our time to be “seeds of change” in the eclipse community India. It is our time to witness the beauty and the strength of Eclipse community.

Hours away from the Eclipse Summit India 2016, the speakers of the summit have arrived  in Bangalore and the summit preparation is in full swing. Naresh from the program team is working hard on different aspects of the summit to make it a success.

Annamalai is going to Unearth Eclipse Modelling Framework tomorrow. I am pretty excited to attend his workshop and leverage the learning in the work. Let’s get together for amazing three days; let us witness Eclipse spell its magic on day 1; let us decode the Java 9 together on day 2 of conference; let us learn and contribute together.

Hail Eclipse, Hail Open Source !!!

How well do you know your Java? – Re-discover Java @ Eclipse Summit India 2016!

Eclipse has always been synonymous with Java. And of course, Eclipse has its own Java Compiler (did you know that?) which is used to compile java program in Eclipse. And there is a bunch of tools built around Java Development Tooling and hence no wonder that the language Java has got significant focus at Eclipse Summit India. Let me highlight some of the talks in the Java track at the conference.

Let’s start with that unwelcome guest (or should I say “beast”?) – the Null Pointer. Yours truly having crafted software in C for most of his life got introduced to the world for Java a few years ago and was given to understand that Java did not have pointers. And lo! the first few programs threw the error – Null Pointer Exception! -(and to think somebody had the audacity to tell that there are no pointers in Java)-and  so how we wish the compiler would help in the NPE case at compile time rather than waiting for an irate client to call you when it happens post-production. And how we wish that we did something really smart rather than push this dirt of a problem of unexpected null under the rug of a blanket null pointer check? Well, there is a pre-conference workshop that promises the magic potion – a deep dive into the null analysis feature that has been part of Eclipse releases for the past couple of years. Attend, Learn and Internalize the methods to do fail-fast programming – that fancy phrase in this context meaning compile-time error trapping instead of waiting for that call from the not-so-amused client -I plan to attend The Road to NullPointerException-free Software – Do you?

Now let’s see what the Java track has in store during the conference days – starting with the “future” with – A talk about value types and the project Valhalla expected in Java 10 and beyond by a speaker who was a prolific committer on Eclipse Java compiler in his earlier avatar, and is currently working for javac at Oracle. Yet Another Oracle Orator (sorry yacc :)) takes us from the future to where the reality “bytes” – invokedynamic – the backbone of lambda expression implementation in Java 8. And the Oracle Odyssey continues with this popular speaker who talks about one of the most important features of Java – the garbage collection.

The latest and greatest of the Java Development Tooling (JDT) of Eclipse captured in a series of talks including faster indexing developed by Google, and  refactoring techniques using JDT.  Enhance your debugging experience by attending this talk on Debugging tips. And make your entire life easier or find time for that extra beer by attending the ever popular talk on Eclipse Tips and Tricks!

Last but not the least, the next big thing looming large on the horizon is Java 9 – So we have the Java 9 features explained in this talk  and then we talk about  the support of Java 9 features in Eclipse JDT.  Java 9 promises to help make custom Java 9 images  which is explained in the next session on “building custom runtime images“. And what is a better  way than to end this track than the session on how to prepare to move your code to Java 9?

Ready and Excited?  Meet you all at the first ever Eclipse Summit India @ Bangalore – Aug 25-27!

Eclipse Summit India 2016 – by the community for the community!

Year 2016 is special for Eclipse users and community in India – we have the first ever conference focused on Eclipse Technologies, Eclipse Summit India, scheduled for Aug 25th to 27th in Bangalore at the Hotel Chancery Pavilion. Eclipse Summit India is being organized in collaboration with the Eclipse Foundation and will feature some of the best speakers from the past EclipseCon conferences around the world.

In 2010, we organized the first “Eclipse Day” – a day for the Eclipse community in Bangalore to get together and share expertise. We still remember that day at a small but cozy hotel on Infantry Road in Bangalore, when we kicked off the very first “Eclipse Day” in India. We followed the tradition in 2011, when SAP came forward to organize it in their campus. There were two more Eclipse Day editions in Bangalore in subsequent years – one organized at IBM and the other one at BOSCH. Each year we raised the bar in terms of content as well as participation. Thus the idea of Eclipse Summit was born!

Eclipse Summit India 2016

The conference is spread across 3 days – Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Day-1, Thursday, is dedicated for pre-conference paid workshops. We have lined up 4 workshops by technical leaders in Eclipse space in some of the key Eclipse technologies – Eclipse IoT, Eclipse e4 Platform, Eclipse JDT and Eclipse Modeling Framework. The next two days are dedicated for conference tracks – we have two tracks each on Friday and Saturday. On each of the days, we kick off the proceedings with keynotes by thought leaders in the Industry.

On Friday, we are privileged to have Mike Milinkovich, Executive Director of Eclipse Foundation deliver the Keynote. On Saturday, we have two keynotes – Sumit Rao, VP of Engineering at Cerner Corporation, as the first keynote speaker and Viral Shah, co-creator of the Julia Language as the second keynote speaker. You can find the complete program here:

Friday Aug 26th, we have two tracks – one focusing on Language Runtime (Java, Node.js, Mobile) and the other on Eclipse IoT Technology. We are fortunate to have leaders from each of these areas – Srikanth Sankaran, whose talks at past EclipseCon were rated amongst the best, will take us through the evolution of Java beyond Java-9, while Benjamin Cabé, Eclipse IoT expert at Eclipse Foundation will unveil the power of Eclipse IoT technologies. These talks are followed by a variety of talks and demonstrations that will expose you to the latest developments and trends in these areas.

On Saturday, the event continues with the focus on language technologies in one of the tracks, while Eclipse Platform focus on the other track. In the language track, Stephan Hermann, Java language guru, will take you through the dynamism in Java language while in the platform track, we have Prouvost, an expert on Eclipse e4 Platform unraveling the mystery of e4. Don’t know what e4 is? Well, now you have a reason to not miss this!

Eclipse Summit India is a conference organized by the Eclipse community for the community. Organizers have done their bit in lining up some of the eminent speakers, who are experts in their own domains. Now it is your, Eclipse community’s – turn, to contribute to it by actively participating to make it a success. Eagerly looking forward to meet you all at the conference!
