Eclipse Platform Summit @ EclipseCon Europe 2016 A one-day Eclipse Platform & Related Tools Summit will be held at EclipseCon Europe 2016 before the main conference. This is a chance for Eclipse Platform users and extenders, old and new to get together to collaborate and drive the future direction of the Eclipse platform project. The goal of this day is to exchange information, get a global vision of what we would like to have and to open the relative bugs to work on.

Examples for issues that could be discussed are:

  • Application model enhancement ,Feedback about migration, E4 usage, E4 tools vs E4 spies, Managing missing extension points ...
  • What is wrong, what is good
  • Test policies for committers
  • RAP/JavaFx/Vaadin implementations
  • Project communication
  • Any good idea !

Watch this space for other related Platform activities at EclipseCon Europe (BOFs, hackathons, etc).
