The Northern Virginia Eclipse User's Group exists to provide a place for Eclipse Open Source enthusiasts to share, learn and contribute to the Eclipse community. We meet once a month on the 4th Thursday at 11:30 AM. At each meeting, we'll have a quick dinner (pizza, subs, salads, etc.) and then have a presentation / demo. There will be lots of time for questions and discussion as well.
What is Eclipse? Most people think Eclipse is a Java IDE. But it's much more! Eclipse is a set of open source technology frameworks built upon Open Services Gateway Initiative (OSGi) than can be used to build client and/or server applications.
