If you need to get a development environment configured just right and share that configuration with your team, you need to connect with Eike Stepper, the project lead and resident expert on our awesome (Oomph-some?) Eclipse Installer technology.
The Eclipse Installer technology, based on Oomph, excels at doing very simple sorts of installations, like pulling together and assembling the pieces of the Eclipse IDE for Java Developers. But that only scratches the surface: you can build and share a script that realizes a complete development environment that includes extra plug-ins, clones of your Git repositories, tasks from your issue tracker, specific workspace preferences configurations, and more. The Eclipse Oomph Installer Technology can get your developers up and running in a matter of minutes.
Eike will cover Oomph topics during the conference: he’s hosting a tutorial and a talk with Ed Merks. Frankly, I can’t say enough good things about Ed and Eike: just spending a few minutes in their proximity will make you smarter. Eike is also presenting some exciting updates to the very cool Eclipse Connected Data Objects (CDO) technology.
You’ll have a chance to work directly with Eike at the EclipseCon 2016 Hackathon on Wednesday, March 9 from 11:15 to 11:50 am.
