Modeling at EclipseCon France

April 28, 2016 | 2 min Read

EclipseCon France is only a couple of weeks away. I’m looking forward to this great conference with a carefully selected program in a beautiful city. And, I’m definitely looking forward to presenting three topics!

On Tuesday the conference starts with the tutorials and we start with our tutorial on AngularJS - What every Java developer should know about AngularJS. This tutorial specifically addresses Java/Eclipse developers with no previous experience developing web frontends and provides a good hands-on introduction into AngularJS. So, be sure to sign up and bring your own laptop!

If you would like to spice up your day with some more web development, we can also recommend the CHE tutorial - Extending Eclipse Che to build custom cloud IDEs - about how to extend the new web-based IDE at Eclipse.

Getting back to AngularJS, we will also present an ignite talk on JSONForms. This component ships with EMF Forms and allows you to render an EMF-Forms-based form in an AngularJS-based application. With JSONForms, you can leverage the mature tooling of EMF Forms for modeling forms while developing state-of-the-art single-page web applications based on HTML5, CSS, JavaScript/Typescript and JSON/JSON Schema.

If you are new to EMF Forms, you could also drop by my talk, “EMF, myself and UI” on building UIs for EMF-based data. While preparing the presentation, I was amazed by all features that have been added since I presented it at EclipseCon France last year. Here are just three of the important features:

1. We have added AngularJS-based rendering as mentioned earlier.

2. We have made it really simple to use the Treeviewer and Tableviewer components standalone.

3. And finally, we built a brand-new Ecore Editor with improved usability based on EMF-Forms.

In the talk we will also give you a sneak preview of unpublished features in the pipeline, so don’t miss it!

Apart from the technical content, any EclipseCon is a good opportunity to meet the people behind the technology, to get in contact and maybe solve one or two technical problems on the spot.

We are looking forward to meeting you at EclipseCon France. Do not forget to register quickly as there is a discount if you register by May 10th. See you soon in Toulouse!
