EclipseCon NA → Eclipse Converge: Less is More

There are some big changes coming to EclipseCon in North America (aka ECNA): ECNA has been renamed, shrunk to 1 day, and co-located with the inaugural DevoxxUS. I have to admit that, as a program committee member from ECNA2016, I was initially quite shocked, but I’ve since really warmed to the idea. DevoxxUS is a big draw, and since most developers get to attend one conference a year, co-locating is a big win. Although we have fewer slots for Eclipse-specific talks, partnering provides a chance to introduce Eclipse technologies to new audiences.  And development doesn’t happen in isolation: we all benefit from exposure to other practices and technologies. There’s a good overlap of interests.

If you’re doing unique work with Eclipse technologies, you should submit a proposal for Eclipse Converge.  I’m putting in two talk proposals.  One is on some ongoing work with the Eclipse 4 Dependency Injection framework.  The other is about a search tool I wrote to prevent disorientation during software exploration. I can’t wait to see what others are doing!
