Eclipse Enterprise Days is a two-day-long event that shows insights into how Eclipse technology scales UP and OUT. OUT to thousands of developers within organizations, and UP to hundreds of plugins and millions of lines of code.

This event is for IT and Architecture teams, developers, architects and managers who are used to working with Eclipse in large enterprise environments.

Even though we're in the beltway, dress code is strictly casual please, no suits!

For the Eclipse Enterprise Days, our sponsors have agreed to use speakers who will represent the challenges organizations face scaling Eclipse out to thousands of developers, or scale the desktop tooling to large scale applications.

All attendees must pre-register for this event. There is no fee for the first 50 registrations (after which we may charge a nominal fee to defray F&B costs), but space is limited to we suggest you register early. To register, please contact and your name will be posted to the Wiki.
