EclipseCon 2010 Virgo Presentation

Reflections on EclipseCon

EclipseCon has been a great conference - on a par with the Spring conferences for enthusiasm and quality of talks etc. There was an enthusiastic welcome to the Virgo project which made my attendance really worthwhile. Several people discussed possible contributions to the Virgo project and there were a number of useful chats with potential consumers of Virgo as well as committers on other EclipseRT components who are keen to see Virgo fully integrate with the rest of RT.

For me, the highlight was the Virgo BoF with a room full of people really interested in learning more about Virgo. I was able to give a bit more detail about the internals of Virgo, clarify the separation of the various components, and start to explain the concepts underpinning the kernel.

I'd like to congratulate the organisers for putting on such a great conference and I look forward with anticipation to future EclipseCons.

EclipseCon Sessions

EclipseCon starts in next week and there are plenty of sessions relevant to Virgo.

I'm doing the main Virgo talk and there's a Virgo launch BoF session (and a proposed BoF on Virgo tooling). I'm on panels on Gemini and the future of application servers and co-leading a BoF on application models for OSGi. I'm also giving a brief update on Virgo at the Eclipse Membership Meeting.

Then there's the main Gemini talk, an EclipseRT BoF, and other sessions on OSGi, Apache Aries, Maven and OSGi, and JPA and OSGi.
