Title Building an in-house Eclipse support team

Name / Affiliation / Email Emilio Palmiero / Ericsson / emilio.palmiero (at) ericsson.com

Abstract For now 5 years, Ericsson has been providing its development teams with an in-house Eclipse support group whose mandate is to smoothen the distribution of Eclipse and help our 10,000 users with their day-to-day operations. In this talk we reflect on both the whys and the hows of our team. For the whys, we explain the genesis of the team, its evolution, and the services offered today. For the hows, we give an overview of the challenges we met:

  • Distributing Eclipse in shared environments (AFS and Windows TS)
  • Managing preferences for a team
  • Gathering information for diagnostic purpose
  • Monitoring Eclipse usage
  • Dealing with upstream problems

This talk will conclude with the pros and cons of this sort of service and discuss how we see the role of the team evolve.


Title From 0 to ready to code, the oomph way

Name / Affiliation / Email Pascal Rapicault / Rapicorp / pascal (at) rapicorp.com

Abstract Chances are that the process to onboard a new developer in your team looks like a long wiki page of tools to install, repos to clone, etc. This talk presents Eclipse Oomph, a new open source project automating the setup of a developer IDE.


Title Symphony, une platforme pour la planification et le contrôle de mission spatiale

Abstract TBD


Title : An introduction to modeling with Papyrus

Name / Affiliation / Email : Charles Rivet / Zeligsoft / charles@zeligsoft.com

Abstract : UML has become the de facto standard for modeling software systems. In the past, most UML tools have been proprietary. This is changing with the upcoming release of Papyrus with Luna. This presentation will show the capabilities of Papyrus as a UML modeling tool.


Title : An introduction to SysML on Papyrus

Name / Affiliation / Email : Charles Rivet / Zeligsoft / charles@zeligsoft.com

Abstract : SysML is an industry-standard modeling language designed specifically for systems engineering. As such, it supports a multi-disciplinary approach to defining, architecting, and developing complex system that consist of hardware and software. This talk will explain how the various aspects of systems engineering can be represented in a model based on the capabilities of a customised Eclipse Papyrus installation to further focus the work of the user. SysML is also a good example of a DSML as it is a superset of a subset of UML, where the richness of UML is enhanced by SysML's own notation.


Title : How to make money around Eclipse

Name / Affiliation / Email : Charles Rivet / Zeligsoft / charles@zeligsoft.com

Abstract : Eclipse is the premiere commercially-friendly open source platform for software development tooling. By itself, it has already built a significant following and influenced many tools. As it grows, many companies, established and startups, are wondering how money can be made around this community. This talk will present an overview of some business models around open source in general and Eclipse in particular, along with their pros and cons, keeping in mind that this is not just a matter of profiting financially from Eclipse, but also to contribute and grow the various Eclipse communities.


Title : Putting the user first with the Eclipse IDE

Name / Affiliation / Email : Doug Schaefer and David Cummings / QNX Software Systems / dschaefer (at) qnx.com

Abstract : For years, the Eclipse community focused on making Eclipse the best platform for tools ever. Focus has been on strong APIs and uber-flexible extensibility.

They started looking to the rest of their technical world and now expect the same out of all software they use.

This talk will go over the things that we at QNX are doing with our Momentics IDE based on Eclipse to address the needs of the user and to make Eclipse easier, and a joy, to use.
