At Google, one of the tools we use in building external and internal products is Eclipse. In addition to that, we also release Eclipse-based tools. To celebrate this and say thank you to the developer community, we’ll be hosting Eclipse Day at the Googleplex on the Mountain View, CA campus on December 18th, 2013.

Eclipse Day is a great opportunity for both Eclipse users and contributors to network and share ideas. This year we have sessions that cover Orion, the Eclipse M2M tools, BIRT, Gerrit, CDT, Dart, Hudson, performance tuning in Eclipse, and scaling Eclipse to work with Google’s massive code base. During the one day conference, Eclipse projects and Eclipse-based products created here at Google will also be highlighted.

In previous years some of the most popular sessions have been the Eclipse Ignite talks: 5-minute, 20-slide presentations by attendees sharing what they are doing with Eclipse.

A big thank you to everyone at the Eclipse Foundation for assembling this great event. We are happy to welcome the Eclipse community to our campus and are always looking for ways to make this conference better. Please share your ideas and let us know your thoughts about this year’s program.

Pre-registration, which includes a $40 contribution to the Eclipse Foundation, is required for attendance. You may pre-register until December 17th, 2013, 2pm PST.

Hope to see you there!
