EclipseCon Europe 2015

EclipseCon Europe 2015

Here we are, meeting again for the yearly tradition of EclipseCon Europe in Ludwigsburg. Full of interesting talks and back-stage conversations, Ludwigsburg is now the place to be! This year also, the EclipseSource team is having a strong presence with a number of hands-on tutorials and talks.

On Tuesday, we kick off the day with a tutorial on development in Eclipse 4, including possible migration paths from Eclipse 3.x. Next, in his talk Your first Application based on Eclipse – FAQ Jonas Helming will address as many FAQs as possible in 30 minutes about developing an Eclipse-based application for the first time. In our last talk of the day we will highlight performance improvements achieved in RAP 3.0 and provide hints for tuning and load testing your RAP application.

Day 1 (Tuesday, November 3 2015):
09:00 to 12:00: What every Eclipse developer should know about Eclipse 4 (e4)
15:00 to 15:35: Your first Application based on Eclipse – FAQ
16:45 to 17:20: What’s new in RAP 3.0?

At the end of the day, join us for an hour of fun at the community Kahoot game! Hosted by Alex Schladebeck and Jonas Helming:

18:45-19:45 Eclipse Quiz Night

On Wednesday morning, modeling enthusiasts will share their new and exciting projects at the Modeling Symposium (list of selected talks). Later that day, Maximilian Kögel will give a live demonstration on creating a complex form-based UI with EMF Forms. If you think 30 minutes is not enough for such a task, we have a track record of “making it happen” 😉

Our last talk on Wednesday will be another look at RAP, this time with a different focus. While RAP makes it easy to migrate complex RCP applications to the web, this is not the end of its possibilities. It has also enabled an entirely new generation of cross-platform native mobile clients – driven from a RAP server (Tabris) or by locally executed JavaScript (Tabris.js).

Day 2 (Wednesday, November 4 2015):
11:15 to 11:50: Modeling Symposium
15:15 to 15:50: Make it happen! – Creating a complex form-based UI in 30 minutes
16:15 to 16:50: RAP by EclipseSource – going beyond Open Source (sponsored by EclipseSource)

On Thursday we will explore the new direction for EMF Forms, that is rendering forms with AngularJS. In our next talk, Jonas Helming and Johannes Faltermeier will demonstrate a new version of the standard Ecore Editor that is currently in active development. Finally, we’ll show you how you can add tailor-made model comparison capabilities to your modeling project by customizing and integrating EMF Compare in various ways.

Day 3 (Thursday, November 5 2015):
10:30 to 11:05: EMFForms goes AngularJS
11:15 to 11:50: Ecore Editor – Reloaded
13:30 to 14:05: Tailor-made model comparison: How to customize EMF Compare for your modeling language

Check out the full session schedule for all three days.

Have fun at EclipseCon Europe, see you there!
