Eclipse DemoCamps Galileo 2009/Detroit

Eclipse-camp.gif What is an Eclipse DemoCamp?

What is Eclipse? You might be surprised to learn it’s more than just a Java IDE. The Eclipse Foundation is an open source ecosystem focused on providing extensible frameworks, tools and runtimes for building commercial applications for both client and server platforms. The Eclipse DemoCamp is an opportunity to showcase the cool and interesting technology built upon Eclipse open source projects.

Compuware Corporation is hosting a regional Eclipse DemoCamp for south-east Michigan on June 17. This is an opportunity to learn more about Eclipse technologies and see how they are used within commercial software solutions. If you are interested in attending, or demoing your own Eclipse based product, please self-register yourself by updating this wiki page below.
