< To: EclipseCon 2009

This page is a draft of a flowchart to help you decide in which category to submit your EclipseCon 2009 talk. If the page becomes popular enough, we might make a graphical version.

Step 1: Primary Focus

Step 1 is to determine your proposal's primary focus. We admit that most interesting talks these days are at the boundaries between two or more interesting frameworks or systems, but in order to classify your proposal, you have to decide what the primary focus is... Got it in mind? Ok, now we can proceed to step 2.

Step 2: If ... Then ... Else

  1. If the primary focus is a specific programming language...
    1. ...if the primary focus is Java, then consider the Java category.
    2. ...if C/C++, then consider the C/C++ category.
    3. ...if PHP... Tools
    4. ...if JavaScript... Web Tools
    5. ...if XML/XHTML... Web Tools
    6. ...if a scripting language... Tools
    7. ...if some other language, then consider the Tools category.
  1. If the primary focus is OSGi, then consider the OSGi DevCon category.
  2. If the primary focus is the intersection of Linux and Eclipe, then consider the Linux DevCon category.
  3. If the primary focus is E4 or the next generation of the Eclipse Platform, then consider the E4 category.
  1. If the primary focus is business intelligence or reporting, then consider the Reporting category.
  2. If the primary focus is business issues (aka making money), then consider the Business and Industry Vertical category.
  3. If the primary focus is on enabling committers and contributors to work effectively, including topics such as the review process, ip issues, and mentoring, then consider the Committer and Contributor category.
  4. If the primary focus is developing for embedded processors, the consider the Mobile and Embedded category.
  1. If the primary focus is a specific framework...
    1. ...if the primary focus is Spring, AspectJ, Hibernate, etc., then consider the Tools category.
    2. ...if a data-centric framework, then consider the Data Tooling category.
    3. ...if a web application framework... Web Tools
  1. If the primary focus is mobile devices, then consider the Mobile and Embedded category.
  2. If the primary focus is modeling, then consider the popular Modeling category.
  3. If the primary focus is SOA, then consider the SOA category.
  1. If the primary focus is tools i.e., tools for developers...
    1. ...if the primary focus is tools for databases, then consider the Data Tooling category.
    2. ...if generically tools for software developers including bug tracking, builds, collaboration, etc., then consider the Tools category.
    3. ...if testing tools... Test and Performance
  1. If the primary focus is user interfaces, then consider the UI category.
  2. If the primary focus is testing, then consider the Test and Performance category.
  3. If the primary focus is something web related, then consider the Web Tools category.
  1. If the primary focus is one of the Eclipse projects...
    1. ...if the primary focus is ACTF. then consider the
    2. ...if AJDT...
    3. ...if Albireo...
    4. ...if ALF...
    5. ...if Aperi...
    6. ...if Apogee...

    41. ...if linux-distros... Linux DevCon
    42. ...if M2E...
    43. ...if Maynstall...
    44. ...if one of the Modeling projects...
    45. ...if Mylyn...
    46. ...if Nebula...
    47. ...if OFMP...
    48. ...if OHF...
    49. ...if Orbit...
