Eclipse DemoCamp Galileo Review

The DemoCamp which has been organized by b+m (my self) in cooperation with FOKUS (Tom Ritter) was a full success. We had seven talks – each about 20 minutes:

  1. Ralph Mueller gave us some infos about the Eclpse Foundation and the Eclipse eco system in Europe (PDF)
  2. Alex Koderman talked about the verinice project, an open source solution for Information Security Management (PDF)
    Break
  3. Tom Ritter spoke about Model Sharing in a Distributed Model-Driven Development (PDF)
  4. Martin Fl├╝gge showed us Dawn, a web-based collaborative extension for GMF editors (PDF)
  5. Eike Stepper gave us a talk about the Net4j signalling platform (PDF)
    Break
  6. My talk was about how to COPE with long term metamodel evolution (PDF) and
  7. Max Bureck spoke about a graphical QVT/R-Editor (PDF)

There was some kind of running gag due to the unawareness of the speakers to actually show a demo because of miscellaneous technical reasons.

In the beginning and during the breaks we had the opportunity to have nice chat and the advantage of a delicious buffet. Thanks to the sponsors.

After the camp some of us moved into a timeless restaurant for celebrating an Eclipse Stammtisch which was also very nice.

All together it was a long but very nice day.

Please note: There will be a second Eclipse Stammtisch on the 16th June where you will have the possibility to meet some members of the Eclipse Board of Directors. Please have a look at Eikes post announcing the Stammtisch. If you want to participate please enter your name into the Doodle poll.
