Tomas Evensen

Wind River has been using Eclipse since early 2003. We started, like most companies, as only users of the technology. But we quickly realized that a commercial product strategy based on open source software requires active community participation, continuous code contribution, and ecosystem promotion. Since 2003, we have joined the Foundation, started a top level project, contributed significant portions of our core commercial product and engineering time, and evangelized Eclipse in the embedded and mobile space. This talk will cover Wind River’s Eclipse story, including the evolution of our strategy, and the mechanics of adopting Eclipse and using it commercially, and the challenges and lessons learned along the way.

Tomas Evensen is Chief Technology Officer at Wind River. In this role, he is responsible for future technologies and architectures at Wind River.

He has more than 24 years of experience in the OS and embedded tools area. Prior to joining Wind River he was the creator of the Diab Data C/C++ compilers. Evensen received his MSEE at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden.
