We Foundation staffers are here to serve! Join us at Night School for an update about what we are doing to make your Eclipse life better.
We will talk, but then you will get a chance to ask, to comment, and to discuss. And there will be free beer!
Here's what we are covering in this edition of Eclipse Night School, moderated by Mikaël Barbero.
The Ultimate Guide to Web Development and Marketing at the Eclipse Foundation
Christopher Guindon and Shabnam Mayel
Many open source projects struggle to build a community of both contributors and adopters of their open source technologies. The good news is the Webdev + Marketing team from the Eclipse Foundation have prepared a list of best practices and things you can do to both help promote your open source initiatives and grow your technological presence.
Hosting 200+ Jenkins Servers and Not Breaking a Sweat
The Eclipse Foundation provides a dedicated build infrastructure for its member projects. In quest of the best solution we have switched to a custom-tailored full OSS approach based on Jenkins OSS, Docker, Openshift, the Jenkins Configuration as Code Plugin and a few scripts. This talk will cover lessons learned and the status quo of our migration efforts to our new infrastructure, and touch upon common problems and solutions when working with Docker-based Jenkins agents in a Kubernetes environment.
Running a Successful Open Source Project
Gunnar Wagenknecht and Wayne BeatonRunning an open source project is easy. All you have to do is make your source code available and you’re open source, right? Well, maybe. Ultimately, whether or not an open source project is successful depends on your definition of success. Regardless of your definition, creating an open source project can be a lot of work. If you have goals regarding adoption, for example, then you need to be prepared to invest. While open source software is “free as in beer,” it’s not really free: time and energy are valuable resources and these valuable resources need to be invested in the project.
Eclipse Infrastructure: Say Goodbye to Bugzilla!
