Pair programming in the Cloud with Eclipse Che, Eclipse Flux, Orion, Eclipse IDE and Docker

During this session, we will do a live demo of a prototype showing multi editing and real time collaboration from 3 different editors from the foundation: Che, Orion and Eclipse IDE. The prototype will use a Flux micro service running inside a Che docker runner that will allow Orion, Eclipse IDE and Che editors to edit the same file in real time like in Google Docs. Come with your laptop, your phone or tablet and join our pair programming session!
