Eclipse Unconference Europe 2015

Eclipse Unconference

This page is the live agenda for the Eclipse Unconference in Ludwigsburg on November 2, 2015 at the Forum.

The Unconference is more and more successful so please get in touch with us (gael.blondelle _ at _ and susan.iwai _ at _ if you need some space for your group.

Registration and logistics

Unlike the regular conference, this Unconference is organized by YOU. There will be food and beverages, power and projectors, and meeting rooms. We will coordinate just a bit to avoid obvious topic overlaps during the day and to make sure that everybody has the right place for their group.

Ther will be some spaces dedicated to a Dev co-working space, that is, spaces where developers meet and work together on their preferred projects. Both experienced and new contributors will find that the co-working space is a good chance to meet and learn from each other.

Registration: If you plan to participate, you have to register for the Unconference on the conference registration page.

11:00-12:30 Geospatial Mobile Apps Using an Open Source Toolkit

mousebird consulting inc is a member of LocationTech and we make the WhirlyGlobe-Maply open source geospatial display toolkit. It's used in a fair number of big, popular apps like Dark Sky and the National Geographic World Atlas for iOS.

Ever wanted to write your own weather, aviation, or map app? It's not actually that difficult to get started. We'll go over some examples of apps that use WhirlyGlobe-Maply and point out the relevant tutorials. If anyone wants to actually follow along, you'll need a mac, a copy of Xcode, and the WhirlyGlobe-Maply toolkit.
