EclipseCon 2009

ECF was busy at EclipseCon 2009, giving a number of talks and tutorials. The photo shows Scott, Mustafa and Markus wrapping up the conference at the Hyatt Bar, which is adjacent to the Santa Clara Convention Center. For your convenience, here is a short overview of ECF activities at EclipseCon 2009:

For those who couldn't make it, if the busyness during the conference is to serve as an indicator, you can expect a flurry of post-con blog posts and tweets to show up, giving you an idea of what EclipseCon 2009 was like.
