Symposia at Eclipse Summit Europe

Yesterday, I submitted my position paper for the Rich Client Applications Symposium at Eclipse Summit Europe. My position is basically that Eclipse Rich Client is good, components a la Equinox are king, and that folks should be building domain specific extensible platforms using Eclipse Rich Client technology. To be completely honest, this is my first position paper, and I’m pretty excited about it. So excited, that I’ll likely submit another one for the Eclipse Modeling Symposium.

Frankly, I’d love to attend all the symposia. Test Driven Development for
the Embedded Systems Space
sounds like a lot of fun. I’m a big fan of test driven development (though I have to admit that I didn’t enjoy Kent Beck’s book on the topic as much as I’ve enjoyed his other work) and a big fan of the embedded space. Unfortunately, I’m too far behind on the embedded side of things to have a position other than “I think it’s all really cool”; that, and the symposium conflicts with the Rich Client one.

Equally cool sounding is the Server Side-Eclipse Symposium. I’ve been building server-side applications using Java for about a decade now, so I have a few opinions on the matter. Unfortuantely, this one also conflicts with the Rich Client one. Too bad.

I’m getting excited about the summit. It should be a lot of fun. Fun always happens when Ralph is around…

On a side note, I believe that I’ve exceeded my record for link density in a blog posting. I’m working toward having a blog composed entirely of links…
