In this event you can meet with other interested developers to improve Eclipse projects. We expect you to know how to develop in Java. No previous Eclipse development knowledge is required, but of course it is helpful if you already know about Eclipse development.
In this event we basically sit together; you can ask questions, see how other people work on Eclipse open source projects, and find areas where you may want to contribute to improve your favorite software.
This is what we typically do:
- Work on the Eclipse source code;
- Test new features in the Eclipse IDE;
- Validate or open new Eclipse bug reports; and
- Provide national language translations (this is an easy way to contribute)
If you are an Eclipse user, contributor or committer, we hope this event will be a lot of fun for you. Attendees can hack away with the help of experienced Eclipse developers and can help to improve the Eclipse platform and its projects.
So, bring your laptop and be ready to see some code!
The Hackathon will be run by Lars Vogel, Mikael Barbero, and Wayne Beaton.
