Eclipse DemoCamps in November
IBM Research Triangle Park is hosting an Eclipse DemoCamp. If you are not local, there are dozens of Eclipse DemoCamps happening around the globe this month. The RTP event is Wednesday November 10th and will be located at Tráli Irish Pub in Brierdale NC. There are about 30 people signed up already, coming from various companies and organizations including Oracle, Duke, Microsoft, Eclipse foundation, NetApp and IBM - looks like a great crowd of Java devs. Expect to socialize and talk about Eclipse plus learn about software development tools and plug-ins for the Eclipse platform. I've been helping Ted Kirby from the local team prepare to give a 15 minute demo of the Enterprise OSGi tooling for Eclipse. It's a lot to whittle down to such a brief talk so we've put together some more information on the topic. Here is a wiki page to explain the steps involved with set-up and I've provided some slides abbreviated for the DemoCamp below for a quick introduction to OSGi tooling; hint: see the backup slides for deeper information about Apache Aries and Blueprint. These slides can be found in the project svn. We hope you come out and join us for all the speakers' demos. Thanks to Tammy Cornell for organizing this event!
