Node4J: Running Node.js in a JavaWorld (sponsored by EclipseSource)

Node.js and server side JavaScript are powerful technologies, although they do not stand on their own in enterprise environments, where Java has been the reigning force for many years. Bridging Node.js and Java provides a much sought after migration path for many Java developers who are moving to their systems to JavaScript. Last year we opened sourced J2V8, a rich set of bindings for Google's V8 JavaScript runtime, this year we built upon that work to bring Node.js to JVM.

During the session we will:

The Seven Habits of Diverse Communities

Diversity is key to the long term success of communities and businesses. There is plenty of research that shows diversity promotes innovation and can drive market growth. In the Eclipse community, we do well on some aspects of 'acquired' diversity, which involves traits you gain from experience, for example, people who have worked in different companies in different countries. However, the community does less well on 'inherent' diversity which involves traits you are born with such as gender and ethnicity.

Non-negotiable usability

When it comes to create and deliver the best features for target users, usability discussions can go on endlessly.

But there are other features to implement in the release, and at some point, this new release must be shipped.

So how to make sure you have achieved the minimum usability to avoid rejection.. and even foster adoption?

What does it take to make your assessment and reduce the risk of any further negotiation?

This is what this talk intends to provide - an explanation of a method and a team-spirit to adopt.

Enforcing reproducible builds with Eclipse Package Drone

This session will explain a real world derived use case, where we use the new trigger system (since 0.13) in Eclipse Package Drone to restrict the upload to artifacts which don't already exist and also prevent uploading artifacts with the same version but a different content. Of course there will be a short introduction to Package Drone, and some other interesting use cases will also be covered.
