Software is impacting every area of our lives, and will be even more omnipresent in the future.
In this session we will take the opportunity to consider the ethical implications of software development and production, why it is important, and how we can do it better for the world and for ourselves while still being pragmatic.
We have chosen five talks for early acceptance at EclipseCon France. Congratulations to the speakers, and thanks to everyone who submitted.
The final submission deadline is Tuesday, March 29. We look forward to reading the proposals that are still to come!
- Eclipse and Java™ 9 - Jay Arthanareeswaran
- Ethics in Software - Boris Baldassari
- My Minecraft-Smart-Home: Prototyping the Internet of Uncanny Things - Sascha Wolter
- Simulating Future Mobility - Robert Hilbrich
- EMF Models getting XXL? An overview of available solutions - Benoit Viaud & Jonathan Lasalle

Debating whether or not to submit a talk? Aurélie Vache has some answers for you.
Speaking in front of people is an exercise that is not without challenges but is so rewarding. Share your experience, present a technology, do a live-coding, tell how you have to build an entire stack hosted in the cloud processing a large volume of data, replicated, load balanced ... These are some of the many examples. Whether you are more front, back, ops, data, UX ... What you have to say is important.
The Xtext Summit is a two-day event at EclipseCon France 2017, that includes a full day of talks on June 21st. Submit your talk before March 15th and be eligible for extra promotion as an early bird pick!
The Summit will start the day before at the Unconference. Both novices and experts will benefit from a hands-on workshop with the committers, a fishbowl session where you can contribute your ideas directly to the community and a hackathon where you can collaborate on Xtext bugs and features.
