Come meet with the E4 developers and the folks providing you the next generation of eclipse. Find out how it all works 'under the covers' as well as talking to us about what you'd like to see. We expect a variety of (preferably lively...;-) discussions about anything and everything E4, join in !

Eric is a Platform UI and E4 committer and a major proponent of model driven UI systems. He has 30+ years experience as a user interface developer / architect and is pleased to see that there is still lots of work to be done in the area.

Remy has been involved with the Eclipse community since 2006 beginning with his participation in Google's Summer of Code program that year. He is a committer on the ECF, Platform UI, e4, and EGit projects, but is perhaps best known for his antics on the #eclipse IRC channel on Freenode and for spending too much time in Bugzilla. Remy received the Top Contributor award at EclipseCon 2008 and graduated from the University of Waterloo in 2009. He now works as a software developer for IBM Rational in Ottawa, Canada. When Remy isn't coding or reading up on bugs or that backlog of IRC chat messages, he can be found honing his Japanese skills through reading, playing the piano, or practicing Sogetsu ikebana.

Paul Webster received a B.A.Sc. in Computer Engineering from the University of Waterloo in 1994. After years working on telephony software and network configuration software in Java and C++, Paul joined the IBM Eclipse Platform UI team in May 2005 and is currently working for IBM Rational Software. Paul is working on the e4 framework and builds, as well as being responsible for command and handlers, keybindings, and menu contributions.

Tom is self-employed and CEO of Systemhaus Gmbh a software company building applications (RCP, J2EE) for companies around the world.

Besides implementing solutions their own consulted companies to introduce Eclipse Technologies into their software stack by providing its knowledge about Eclipse Technologies and Software Design experience. Tom is one of the Platform-UI and Nebula committers working on JFace-Viewers, Nebula-Grid and contributed patches to other eclipse projects (EMF, ...). He is the founder of the UFacekit-Project which builds a layer of abstraction above Eclipse-Databinding.

He is a regular contributor to the eclipse newsgroups and received the top contributor award in 2007 for his work on JFace-Viewers.

Tom is part of the E4 project team and has written the EMF based platform prototype used as the starting point for the implementation of the next generation of the Eclipse-Platform.

He regularly blogs about his opensource work on
