Eclipse Day

Revision as of 10:30, 8 January 2013 by Ralph.eclipse.org (Talk | contribs)

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 events@eclipse.org.

Eclipse Days 2013

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 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 this help to approved events:

  • Sponsorship funds matching those of the other participating sponsors, to a maximum of $1,500 USD. In return for the sponsorship, the Eclipse Foundation requests the access to the attendee list and e-mail addresses, plus sponsor acknowledgement during the event. (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
