Schedule info


OK, so you can run your current plugins on Eclipse 4. That's fine but it just scratches the surface as far as using Eclipse 4's functionality. The question new becomes where do we want to go ?

The idea is to get you thinking about where it makes sense to take the Eclipse UI !

This talk will explain some of the new possibilities available in Eclipse 4 as well as raising some of the fundamental design questions that Eclipse 4 makes possible such as:

  • Do we really need perspectives ?
  • Should we be looking into Eclipse 4 Tablet apps ?
  • Should features be able to define their own CSS ?
