Regional Eclipse Communities are groups of people located in the same geographic area, that have a keen interest in using and contributing to Eclipse. Regional communities can share ideas, discuss projects, exchange code and compare solutions. Anyone can join a community and most groups will meet in person at least once a year.

Participate

Find a local group on the community list below. Groups may connect through mailing lists, newsgroups or wikis, so see what's available for your community and introduce yourself to the group.

Start a Regional Community

If you don't see a regional community listed for your area, and you have the time and enthusiasm to dedicate to leading a group, you're welcome to start one by emailing regional-community@eclipse.org. Let us know what city or area you would like to coordinate. There are no set requirements to become a regional community organizer, however we would encourage organizers to commit to arranging at least one in-person meeting per year and to monitor their mailing list or newsgroup for new posts at least weekly.

  • We have a Wiki Template that you can use as a guide to start organizing your group.
  • If you need an Eclipse speaker for an event, contact Wayne Beaton at wayne@eclipse.org.
  • At EclipseCon 2008, Tonny Madsen of the RCP Company and the eclipse.dk Society in Denmark presented some great tips on organizing a local Eclipse group.
  • If you are planning an Eclipse Summit day for your area, we have some templates and tips for promoting.
