Scout in the Cloud

You want to develop business applications? Good.
You want to run your application in the cloud? Ok.
You need your application to scale according with the number of users? Sure.
You are looking for a framework that works out of the box? Perfect!

Exploratory testing and session-based test management

Automated testing rocks, don’t get me wrong. But a good test strategy involves knowing when to automate and when to get your hands dirty with some manual testing.

Before you fall asleep – manual testing doesn’t have to mean boring repetition. In fact, manual testing can be exciting, revitalizing and helpful for the project and the software quality. And everyone has to do it at some point or another – so it’s worth working on making it better.

Modeling Symposium

The symposium aims to provide a forum for community members to present a brief overview of their work. We offer four 12-minute lightning slots to facilitate a broad range of topics. The primary goal is to introduce interesting new technology and features.

The following talks have been selected:

Browser IDEs and why you don't like them

Everything has gone Cloud but developers haven't yet accepted tools that are hosted there, why is that? What's missing in the available Cloud based tooling environments that makes a developer cringe? This talk will look at how you build an app on the desktop and how you build and deploy it in the Cloud to figure out what are the shortcomings of either approach. You're likely to leave this talk a little surprised at how much you really can do in the Cloud, or by your comments, effect the next set of feature requests.

From Rats to Cows and Hearts to Homes, M2M stories and architecture patterns

The machine to machine world has come a long way over the last decade. Helped by improvements in technology, connectivity, power consumption and price, the types of solution that are feasible has changed dramatically. This presentation tells the story of some real world m2m projects that have come to life, ranging from rats to cows, hearts to homes and cars to tanks.

Case Study - Semantic Versioning a Large Existing Codebase

Modern software is modular and semantically versioned. It has a low TOC because it's reliable so does not incur unexpected costs. This is the kind of software developers love to implement, CIOs love to buy and users love to use. But what about older, complex software; is it doomed? In this talk we'll investigate a case where a large, complex, un-modular body of code took it's first steps toward proper semantic versioning and ultimately toward modularity. We'll discuss tooling and techniques that can be used to help developers learn how to apply semantic versioning.

M2M, IoT, device management: one protocol to rule them all?

M2M is rapidly growing and since its early days different "standard" protocols have emerged (e.g. OMA-DM, TR-069, MQTT, ...) or are emerging (e.g. CoAP or Lightweight M2M).
Understanding which protocol to use for which application can be intimidating, therefore we propose to give an overview of these protocols to help you understand their goals and characteristics. We will give a status of the availaible open source implementations in the Eclipse M2M ecosystem, with projects such as Paho, Mihini and Ponte.

Getting married (with) EMF

If you do not use EMF or know what it is, please keep reading; this talk is targeted at you.
EMF (Eclipse Modeling Framework) is a framework used to generate entities (aka Java Beans) from a simple model. Over the years, EMF has become a runtime technology for all kinds of purposes and is, since the release of Eclipse 4, even part of the core platform.
However, the world of Eclipse developers is still split in two groups. One group uses EMF and loves it, and the other group has never used it before.

ESON the EMF Simple Object Notation textual DSL syntax, an alternative to XMI (formerly known as EFactory)

This presentation will introduce you to

EFactory is an Xtext syntax representing generic EObject models in a textual (DSL) syntax. It looks like JSON, but retains EMF's strong typing, and is in effect an alternative to XMI.

If all goes according to plan, EFactory will be renamed to ESON, and based on discussions with Ed Merks at EclipseCon Europe hopefully integrated into EMF (alongside Xcore, probably).

A guided tour of Eclipse IoT

Since the creation of the M2M Industry Working Group ca. EclipseCon Europe 2011 the number of M2M/IoT projects and the community around them, haven't stopped growing.

This talk will take you on an extensive tour of all the open-source projects that the Eclipse IoT community federates around communication protocols, developments tools, frameworks and solutions.

This is the perfect opportunity for you to learn more about these technologies, as well as how you can get involved and contribute.
