Eclipse Day

Revision as of 07:45, 1 July 2009 by Etienne.juliot.obeo.fr (Talk | contribs) (Examples of Eclipse Days)

The Eclipse Foundation believes that facilitating networking and face-to-face interactions is important to growing the Eclipse community. One way the Foundation supports these interactions is by encouraging Foundation Member companies to help organize community events. One style of event is something we call an Eclipse Day - a day long event that has a published agenda focused on Eclipse technology. Another style of event are the more informal and shorter Eclipse DemoCamps.

The Eclipse Foundation has put together the following program to support and encourage the creation of Eclipse Days by our member companies. If you are interested in organizing an Eclipse Day, please contact Lynn Gayowski at events@eclipse.org.

Eclipse Day Criteria

The criteria for an Eclipse Day are:

  • At least one Eclipse member company or the Eclipse Foundation is involved in the organization of the event.
  • The Eclipse Day must be a community event open to the public, with preference given to events that have presenters and sponsors from multiple organizations.
  • The event must be at least 1 full day.
  • The event program must demonstrate significant Eclipse content.
  • There is a public web site that lists the program and registration information.
  • Expected attendance for the event must be 50 people or more.
  • The event is focused on a certain geography or industry.

Eclipse Foundation Assistance

The Eclipse Foundation will offer approved events:

  • $2,000 USD (Note: we have a limited budget, so it will depend on the number of events organized)
  • We will publish a community bulletin on the eclipse.org homepage to drive awareness of the event.
  • A listing in the monthly Eclipse Member Newsletter email
  • A listing in the online Community Events calendar
  • Wiki space, if needed, for the event's homepage
