Top 5 Talks: Ignacio Garro

Ignacio Garro, Continental AG. I lead the Systems and Software Engineering Tools team. There we provide several eclipse based engineering tools (some of them developed in our team) to thousands of R&D engineers at Continental. I am also the chairman of the Eclipse Automotive Industry Working Group.

The 5 talks I am most excited about:

Top 5 Talks: Mickael Istria

Mickael Istria, JBoss by Red Hat. I'm working in the team developing JBoss Tools and JBoss Developer Studio (IDE for modern Mobile and Web applications). In this team, most of my time is dedicated to maintain our build system, set up new tools and processes to ensure good team productivity and efficient development.

5 talks I won't miss (among others):

  • Bringing the power of Eclipse to VHDL designers because this is a nice use-case that clearly highlights what Eclipse RCP and Modeling are aimed at providing: good frameworks for new languages, new tools, new domains...
  • Scala in Eclipse, Eclipse in Scala is interesting for Scala developers, but what I like most is that we'll be explained how to develop Eclipse plugins with Scala. Although I personally don't use Scala, I'm pretty sure that what I'll learn there will mostly apply to the myriad of other JVM lanaguages (Groovy, Ceylon, Xtend, Golo, Kotlin, JRuby, Jython, Clojue, JavaScript with Rhino...), including the ones i really love.
  • It's all about feedback - code review as a great tool in the agile toolbox the "Economics of Software Quality" book measured that Code Review is the best way for a project to achieve good quality. My daily experience with Git, GitHub and (above all) Gerrit makes me agree with it. So I'd like to learn more about those tools to ensure I'll leverage them as well as possible in order to fulfill their promise of better quality.
  • Sirius By Example: Build Your Own Diagram, Table and Tree Editors in 20 Minutes Although there has been a (deserved) big trend on Textual DSL for the last few years, Graphical Languages are still widely used and a lot of new use-cases are invented every week. Current status of diagramming at Eclipse relies on efficient but old projects that are often seen with an entry-barrier too high according to adopters. I expect Sirius will have a lower entry barrier to develop tools for Graphical Languages.
  • Orion deployed: Orion goes from prototype to production Because the Web and Mobile era is happening right now, and Orion is currently the only Eclipse-based IDE that works on tablets and smartphones.
