Schedule info


Attend this talk to learn about the Eclipse Long Term Support (LTS) program. This new program will provide infrastructure and governance to allow support for Eclipse software long past the usual two maintenance builds we see today.

Stonehenge, The Pyramids, Haiga Sophia, and other wondrous structures are examples of human endeavours that have stood the test of time. It wasn't easy. These monuments and architectural wonders have had to face wars, cultural upheaval, harsh weather, and more as they crossed the centuries.

Technology is known for moving and innovating very fast. Often little thought is applied to how to make software stand up to the test of time. There is a burning need for long-lived software to support our long lived products, infrastructure, and services.

This talk will present an exciting and compelling new program that provides long-lived support for Eclipse software. Find out what this means, how to participate, and how to benefit from this program.

I like your abstract :) however, is there any chance that you could share with us existing slideware in case you already delivered this presentation? This would definitely help to understand more concretely what the talk would be about.
Thank you!
