Learn about the Eclipse open source project for best practices called Eclipse Process Framework (EPF).
EPF enables individual developers and organizations to collaborate around software development practices within an open source environment. Rather than reinventing the wheel, organizations can build on each others work and ideas in a fully transparent environment. EPF provides practices for agile and iterative software development with a strong focus on collaboration. EPF is currently co- developed by over 20 organizations, and rapidly growing.
In this BoF session, we will discuss what EPF is, how your team can adopt it and how you can get involved in the project.
