Tonny Madsen

User groups are springing to life all over Europe - and likely elsewhere. In this BoF, we will talk about how to build interest for a local community, tips for events, how to get sponsors for the events and similar essential user group stuff.

One hope is that we might be able to setup series of similar events in a region - e.g. Europe - where we can get companies to show they stuff multiple times... Easier for us and likely more interesting for them as they get a bigger audience...

At the end of the meeting we should hopefully setup a mailing list or similar to help exchange ideas for events in the future as well.

Tonny Madsen is a log term user and developer of the Eclipse platform and has among other things reported more than 80 bugs for 5 different major releases (and still counting). Tonny has 5 years of experience with the Eclipse platform (since version 2.0) and more than 20 years of experience with software development and system architecture.

Now, Tonny is the CEO of The RCP Company, an independent software development company that is specialized in development, training, consultancy and independent products based on the Eclipse™ platform, Rich Client Platform, and the corresponding technologies and tools.

Tonny is also the chairman of Eclipse.dk, the Danish Eclipse Society.
