Things to Do and Things to Know
Running, food, drink, apps, gadgets, prizes, and demos – these are the extras make EclipseCon fun
while you're learning, sharing, and networking.
This traditional early-morning run gets more popular every year. Walk, run, talk, whatever! with fellow attendees each morning, wearing your new running shirt, courtesy of EclipseSource.
Meet in the Hyatt lobby at 7am, then get out in the California sunshine. All levels of running and coding ability welcome!

Smart Phone App
Yes, there's an app for EclipseCon 2011! Thanks to itemis, Peter Friese, Heiko Behrens, Ekke Gentz, and Christian Campo for creating an app that runs on multiple platforms, including any phone with a web browser. With the app you can browse the schedule, mark your favorites, create your own personalized conference schedule, see photos of the presenters, and refer to maps of the venue and Santa Clara. Here's where to get the different versions:
Members and Committers Reception
Monday, 5:45 - 6:45pm
Hyatt Pool or Ballroom E
The Monday evening Members and Committers Reception, sponsored by Oracle, will be pool-side if the weather cooperates, or in the ballroom if we aren't so lucky. The food, drink, and opening-night networking will get the social component of your week off to an excellent start.
Eclipse Community Awards Ceremony
EclipseCon Trivia - Live Edition!
Monday, 7 - 9pm
The Eclipse Community Awards honor the individual contributors, the Eclipse projects, and the technologies that have made Eclipse a stronger community in the past year. Please join us as we announce the winners!
EclipseCon Trivia - Live Edition! will be based on our success with EclipseCon Jeopardy in 2008, and the popular EclipseCon Trivia Game in 2010. This year we'll have even more fun! Come early, grab a drink and good seat and enjoy the show.
Thanks to Nuxeo for sponsoring the Awards Ceremony and EclipseCon Trivia.
Tuesday, 5:45 - 7:30pm
Tuesday evening is party time in the Exhibit Area!
While you'll have many opportunities to visit the sponsor booths as you go to and from the sessions, the Exhibitors Reception gives you more time to chat with the sponsors and check out what our member companies are doing while enjoying refreshments on the Hyatt mezzanine.
OSGi DevCon BoF and Reception
Tuesday, 7:30 - 10pm
This annual get-together is a great way to network with the OSGi community!
The festivities begin after the Exhibitors Reception in the Napa Room, on the main floor of the hotel. Come for dessert, drinks, and conversation about what's new and interesting with OSGi.
Featured speakers include Peter Kriens, David Bosschaert, Tim Diekmann, BJ Hargrave, and Richard Nicholson. Audience participation and questions are encouraged!
