Announcing EclipseCon Europe 2011, and EclipseCon North America 2012 Program Chair

As I mentioned this morning at EclipseCon, we're proud to announce EclipseCon Europe, 2011. New name, but same great conference. We wanted to demonstrate the equal importance of both our major events, and decided to unify on the "EclipseCon" brand. Bernd Kolb will be reprising his role as Program Chair and we hope he makes great use of the extra space. We sold out early last year, so plan to register early to avoid disappointment!

Also, we'd like to announce Doug Schaefer (CDT Project Lead) as the Program Chair for EclipseCon North America 2012 (exact dates and location TBA). We've had an excellent run of great Program Chairs who put their own touch on EclipseCon and we're looking forward to Doug's perspective and leadership.

EclipseCon QR-CodeBreakers Game

The fun diversion game at EclipseCon this year is EclipseCon QR-CodeBreakers. Grab a QR Code Scanner for your favorite mobile device before the conference to make sure you're ready to play.

Once again there will be some great prizes for those playing along including an XBOX 360 courtesy of Microsoft, and Droid Pro (Global capable) courtesy of Motorola and a bevy of Amazon Gift Certificates courtesy of the Eclipse Foundation.

Full details of the game can be found on the EclipseCon website. Not sure what you're looking for? Here's a sample QR-Code, how many can you find at EclipseCon?

Did I mention EclipseCon is four days?

I'm pretty sure I did last year, but it bears repeating - EclipseCon is a four day conference. The reason I point that out is that many conferences are 2.5 or maybe a full three days, but we take full advantage of bringing hundreds of people from around the world and pack the week. You won't want to roll in and miss Monday morning (some of the best Tutorials start then), and you won't want to leave early on Thursday and miss the closing sessions.

EclipseCon starts in just 2 weeks, register today!
