Main topics or activities

The unconference is a relatively open format, so the content can change as the event is running if the attendance wants it. But here are some themes and activities that we'll try to cover during this event.

  • AERI: Address most reported issues
  • Releng: Build stability and regular changes
  • Performance: Identify potentials for parallel processing
  • Usage workflows vs other IDEs: Find the important usage workflows existing in other IDEs that Eclipse IDE doesn't support yet; and vice-versa.
  • Integration with Web-based tools: How can the Eclipse IDE be using Web-based technologies? How to make the Platform feel more open to it?
  • E4 integration : how the PDE could propose better templates or wizards to work with E4 plugins.
  • Release tasks overview
