I just realized that I haven't blogged on this year's EclipseCon yet. Time to do that. You might have guessed it:
As a committer to several Eclipse projects, I am really looking forward to meeting "the family". It's always been big fun and I guess it will be the same this year. But the main reason for going there is of course:
Together with Sebastian I will give a talk on What's cooking in Xtext 2.0 on Tuesday at 2pm. We're eager to show you all the new features of Xtext we've been working on during the last months, especially the expression language library Xbase and the code generation langauge Xtend.
You should not miss our tutorial
Pragmatic DSL Design with Xtext, Xbase and Xtend 2 on Thursday at 10:30am. Sven will join us to give you a walk through tutorial on a modern way of creating DSLs. We just had another rehearsal on this one and I promise you it will be a real burner.
All of that wouldn't have been possible without the support from the company we're working for: itemis. Into the bargain we're bronze sponsors for this years conference.
It is great to work for a company that really lives open source.
