Program Committee's Favorite Talks: Martin Lippert
Martin Lippert, VMware/SpringSource, worked with Eclipse since its first public release 1.0 and used it as an IDE and as a platform for building highly modular and plugin-oriented business applications. He built bytecode-weaving extensions for various Eclipse versions and runtimes and is now co-leading the team behind the Spring Tool Suite at VMware.
Here are his favorite talks for this year's ECE:
- The Future of Eclipse
Eclipse needs to continuously innovate and improve itself as a platform, as an IDE, and as an ecosystem. So looking ahead at the next challenges for Eclipse is important, and brainstorming about what might (need to) come up after the 4.x releases is at the heart of such a conference like EclipseCon and could be inspiring for all of us.
- Orion - a browser based tools integration platform
The Orion project at Eclipse is one of the most promising and inspiring projects at Eclipse, at least from my point of view. Looking at the browser as a runtime environment is one of the natural choices when doing software engineering today, and thinking about software development tools themselves as running in the browser it part of our all future, I think. Orion moves ahead into this direction.
- A regular day as an Eclipse Committer
A look behind the scenes is always interesting, especially if you would like to get involved in the development of an existing project at Eclipse or maybe even think about proposing a new project. And I am sure Benjamin and Steffen will give a lively and interesting talk on how much fun working on Eclipse projects can be.
- Tycho adoption: Lessons learned, tips and tricks from the 1st line of front
Tycho is becoming a standard for building Eclipse-based applications, p2 repositories, plugins, features, distributions, RCP apps, and whatever artifact you can think of. And adopting a new build system is not always as easy as you might think. So its definitely worth to listen to those experiences before doing it yourself.
- Eclipse Spykit - A Handy Tool for Startup Analysis
Analyzing performance, especially startup performance, is an important work to do. But it can be really painful to figure out what exactly is happening at startup - and why. I am looking forward to this talk on the Eclipse Spykit to help you with this.
