Pierre Gaufillet, AIRBUS. I am a member of the methods and tools team supporting the development of avionics software. Safety of software in airborne systems, real time architecture design, modeling, code and doc generation, and Eclipse deployment are our daily bread. I am also the chairman of the PolarSys Industry Working Group.
My six favorite sessions:
- The Requirements Modeling Framework - a puzzle piece for Eclipse-based Systems Engineering In the industrial development process, requirement engineering plays a key role. This talk focus on how various Eclipse initiatives are collaborating to produce a masterpiece for our system engineering toolbox.
- OSLC tool integration tutorial: using linked data to support engineering lifecycle collaboration With systems engineering involving more and more tools, seamlessly interchanging data is becoming a major topic. OSLC is an interesting initiative aiming at making these interchanges easier. Combined with a reference implementation like Lyo, OSLC might be everywhere in the next generation of engineering tools.
- Live collaborative modeling goes industrial For years, I've been working with modeling tools in various contexts, and let's face it – teamwork has never been supported correctly. It seems things are changing now with the maturation of frameworks like CDO and with the emergence of a few concepts like short duration automated locks that will be shown during this talk.
- Software Quality: the Eclipse Way and Beyond Who hasn't wondered if open source components are mature enough to be deployed in their project? The goal of this work is to provide a grid that will help evaluate this maturity. It is also the first step to improve and follow up in constrained contexts like PolarSys.
- How CERN scaled up Eclipse for the LHC To be honest, I am simply excited to see how Eclipse is used and deployed in a big research organization like CERN!
- Polarsys and LTS: Taming the maintenance and sustainability beasts You really should go to this session if you are interested in embedded systems engineering tools!
Ignacio Garro, Continental AG. I lead the Systems and Software Engineering Tools team. There we provide several eclipse based engineering tools (some of them developed in our team) to thousands of R&D engineers at Continental. I am also the chairman of the Eclipse Automotive Industry Working Group.
The 5 talks I am most excited about:
- An Eclipse true story: Embedded systems design from UML modelling down to system simulation A holistic view in embedded systems development, near to the practical world and from the trenches. A way to see that you can also build with eclipse something that you can touch.
- Components are not enough: Function oriented development for embedded systems An Eclipse true story: Embedded systems design from UML modelling down to system simulation.
- OSLC tool integration tutorial: using linked data to support engineering lifecycle collaboration THE talk (in this case tutorial) I was waiting for. OSLC could make it to be the magic bullet to integrate different best of class tools into complete development solutions that perfectly fit every need.
- The Requirements Modeling Framework - a puzzle piece for Eclipse-based Systems Engineering Requirements Management in general and the proper exchange of requirements between development partners has been one of the hottest topics in the automotive industry for several years now. It is very nice to see the key role that eclipse and the RMF is playing on this topic.
- Tycho: the mandatory tool to build your Eclipse based product Unit testing, continuous integration, gerrit, ... and so many other activities that are dependant on a powerful, reliable and automatable build mechanism.And now, finally, it is there!
Mickael Istria, JBoss by Red Hat. I'm working in the team developing JBoss Tools and JBoss Developer Studio (IDE for modern Mobile and Web applications). In this team, most of my time is dedicated to maintain our build system, set up new tools and processes to ensure good team productivity and efficient development.
5 talks I won't miss (among others):
- Bringing the power of Eclipse to VHDL designers because this is a nice use-case that clearly highlights what Eclipse RCP and Modeling are aimed at providing: good frameworks for new languages, new tools, new domains...
- It's all about feedback - code review as a great tool in the agile toolbox the "Economics of Software Quality" book measured that Code Review is the best way for a project to achieve good quality. My daily experience with Git, GitHub and (above all) Gerrit makes me agree with it. So I'd like to learn more about those tools to ensure I'll leverage them as well as possible in order to fulfill their promise of better quality.
- Sirius By Example: Build Your Own Diagram, Table and Tree Editors in 20 Minutes Although there has been a (deserved) big trend on Textual DSL for the last few years, Graphical Languages are still widely used and a lot of new use-cases are invented every week. Current status of diagramming at Eclipse relies on efficient but old projects that are often seen with an entry-barrier too high according to adopters. I expect Sirius will have a lower entry barrier to develop tools for Graphical Languages.
- Orion deployed: Orion goes from prototype to production Because the Web and Mobile era is happening right now, and Orion is currently the only Eclipse-based IDE that works on tablets and smartphones.
