Google Analytics for Eclipse Plugins

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

It's always fun to see the download statistics for your plugin, but it is even more fun to see live who is actually using your plugin, how they installed it and where they are from.

Getting that up and running can require a lot of bandwidth and infrastructure but luckily there already exist a well known analytics service called Google Analytics that can do this for you with all the graphs and earth-plots you want - even animated.

A tale about a Big SVN to Git Migration

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

In November 2012 I helped the giant JBoss Tools repo containing 400+ eclipse plugins, 2+ millions line of code with 7+ year of history migrate from SVN into a multitude of Git repositories.

Most existing large migrations I could find info about was about the size as one of our 30+ modules in JBoss tools and it turned out the advice in most of these just did not cope with a migration as large as this.

During this tale I cover what tools I examined, rejected and in the end selected to do the migration. I will outline the migration process we did as a team, what things Git enabled immediately and which things we are moving towards now that Git have opened up for a more flexible build and development model and structure.
