EclipseDemoCamp An event of annual series of Eclipse Demo Camps is taking place in Hamburg again. The event was planned in November, but takes actually place in December. As usually Peter and Martinare responsible for the organization. To make it short:

If you want to attend, make sure you find a minute to write you name down in EclipseWiki. I suppose these kind of events is well-known. If you never heard of that – look at the interesting topics and the attendee list of more than one hundred people. You will have the opportunity to listen to the talks, to speak with interesting people and get some news from Eclipse Commiters and Users. In the end you usually get some food and bevereges, to make the atmosphere a little more relaxed. If you never been there it is worth to visit…

As announced in a previous post the Eclipse Demo Camp Hamburg – Galileo Edition took place in the East Hotel in Hamburg. Organized by Peter and Martin, the event was again an interesting meeting with Eclipse-interested people in a wonderful location. Five presenters introduced Eclipse and OSGi-related topics. Moritz Eysholdt reported about the (Meta)Model Evolutions, he was focusing on during his masters thesis. The interesting part of his solution are two Xtext DSLs for description of the Metamodel changes (EPatch) and model migration algorithms (MetaPatch). Heiko Behrens gave a funny and really good introduction of Xtext and DSLs for not Xtext developers. I really like his examples: these are simple and understanding for everyone. Great job! Marco Mosconi showed some ObjectTeams (black) magic. A very intersting technology using aspect-oriented programming for type-safe framework modifications. Seem to be pretty advanced technology with interesting tooling. Markus Alexander Kuppe had a talk on ECF and RFC 119 and gave some sneak preview of the upcomming features. Finally, I had a short talk on Common Navigator Framework, basically explaining the article posted here and something I documented for Galileo. Here are some visual impressions: my FlickR set and  Peter’s.

EclipseDemoCamp The Galileo Edition of Eclipse is already in the pipeline and the community is happy to celebrate this with a series of events. In Hamburg we do it in two ways – there are Eclipse DemoCamps and Eclipse Stammtisch. This time Peter and Martin managed to put both events together. To make it short:

If you never heard of that – I can only recomend to take part.

EclipseDemoCamp
At the Eclipse DemoCamp we had the opportunity to present certain aspects of our work. Our talk concentrated on building a repository for GMF based diagram editor models. The problem there is, that GMF makes assumptions about the underlaying model which had to be worked around. In the following slides the essence of the steps necessary are explained.

EclipseDemoCamp

Yesterday, the first Hamburger Eclipse DemoCamp took place. About fifty participants and eight speakers met in the nice Spanish restaurant Aqui in Schanzen-District, just a step away from the Headquaters of Gentleware AG. The event was, what it should be – a local exchange of experience and know-how in the area of Eclipse. Because of the interests of Gentleware, b+m Informatik AG and itermis AG, the session was not just Eclipse-generic, but focused on MDSD topics. I liked the fact that the participants quickly build a homogenous group – all of them had some experience in PDE, EMF, etc. Amazing demo has been shown by Frank Zimmerman, who used some MDSD techniques to program the Lego Robot. A very nice start event, hopefully it can become a tradition. The photos are available in a FlickR’s Photo Set.
