EclipseWorld 2006 Callisto Boot Camp

Revision as of 12:56, 3 May 2006 by Wbeaton (Talk | contribs)

We have been asked to deliver a "Callisto Boot Camp" at EclipseWorld 2006.


The conference organizers provided us with this description.

T-7. Callisto Boot Camp: Ten Projects. One Day.

By Speaker to Come The Callisto launch of Eclipse 3.2­10 projects coming together with a massive simultaneous update and release­is unprecedented in the software tools community. For most Eclipse users, from committers to enterprise IT staff, Callisto will make a profound impact on every aspect of software development. This tutorial, for experienced Eclipse developers who are currently using Eclipse 3.1, will deep-dive on the new features and innovations in each of the 10 projects that make up the Callisto Simultaneous Release. By attending this class, you’ll gain a unique perspective on these projects, not only about the individual new functions that they offer, but how they integrate together to advance the entire Eclipse ecosystem. Everything you want to know about Callisto ­you’ll find it here.

The 10 projects that this session will cover are:

  • Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools
  • C/C++ Development Tools
  • Data Tools Platform
  • Eclipse Modeling Framework
  • Graphical Editor Framework
  • Graphical Modeling Framework
  • Platform
  • Test and Performance Tools Platform
  • Web Tools Platform
  • Visual Editor


Realistically, this is just too much work for any single person. I'd like to put a working group together to build this tutorial. Ideally, this working group will have at least one representative from each of the projects. It is probably not appropriate to have 10 separate presenters during the tutorial; however, I'm game to try and work this out.

The following table will help us work out who is going to participate in this effort.

Project Contact Presenter Notes
BIRT Jason Weathersby Jason Weathersby?
CDT Doug Schaefer  ?
DTP John Graham John Graham?
EMF Ed Merks Chris Aniszczyk?
GEF Randy Hudson Chris Aniszczyk?

Bjorn had this to say:

My only critique would be the words "deep dive" - I don't think that one can manage a deep-dive on 10 projects in one day. However, it would be possible to do more than "slideware" reviews of the 10; just not a deep review.

I tend to agree. It would be nice to have some actual tutorial elements. Ideally, these elements will
