Wednesday at Eclipse Con Europe is Quality Day! Over at the FMZ building, we have a day full of talks dedicated to testing and quality, held by testers and developers from the Eclipse and the testing communities. Here's a preview of what's in store.
The OSGi Alliance is back again this year with its IoT demo built around a LEGO® train track. With an expanding demo ecosystem of organisations and OSGi software vendors and hardware manufacturers, the 2015 demo has evolved and been extended. New features for 2016 see a focus on audience participation in the demo at the conference. Last year’s train and track management software has been complemented by a new ticketing and route-planning engine ...
Join us in the exhibit hall where companies stand behind their Eclipse Technologies and Products. Here's just a sampling of what's in store: Yatta Solutions' Profiles for Eclipse, Enalean's Tuleap ALM environment, SSI Schaefer's RCP based, Logistics, Supply Chain, Warehouse Management Software and the Liferay OSGi-based Digital Experience Platform.

Testing Eclipse Plug-ins is (unnecessarily?) painful. Don’t believe me? Consider this bug.
A user reports a bug: I check it out. Yep, it’s a bug all right It seems we’re not adding a tab group to our launch configuration type and we should. OK, the fix is easy enough:
BoFs (Birds-of-a-Feather sessions) are a great way to start networking around a technology, idea or a new initiative. EclipseCon BoFs are one-hour sessions held on the evening of Tuesday, 25 October, with a session starting at 19:00 and another at 20:00. All participants are invited to organize a BoF, but space is limited.
The slots for pre-scheduled BoFs are full, but we have reserved half the spaces for onsite organization. To organize at the conference, come to the BoF Board by registration. To see what has already been scheduled, go here.

The C/C++ development tools (CDT) project is one of the longest-running projects in the Eclipse ecosystem. It is the first open source project I was ever involved in and I have been able to see firsthand how it has driven innovation in hardware and the embedded space (which is now quickly becoming the Internet of Things space).
