Eclipse Day Delft 2012

This year, the Eclipse Day in Delft, Netherlands, will focus on tools and techniques to support the software development process, including software maintenance. Visitors of the day will learn how to manage the software development lifecycle with Eclipse-based tooling. The event will take place on 27 September, 2012.

Talks will cover techniques and tools helping during tracking bugs and features, code development, quality assurance, and during building and deploying software.


The Eclipse Day Delft focuses on interaction and on stimulating discussion between participants. Several excellent talks lasting 30 minutes will inform you about noteworthy and new Eclipse technologies, whereby the discussion rounds throughout the day will allow to get in contact with other participants and speakers. In the late afternoon, demo sessions and drinks will provide plenty of opportunities for networking.
