By Gaël Blondelle, Eclipse Europe.

Location: Lindstedtsvägen 3, room 4523

Abstract: Eclipse has been famous for the last 17 years for the Eclipse IDE. But nowadays, the Eclipse Foundation hosts more than 350 projects in very different domains, some related to the Eclipse platform like the Eclipse Modeling stack, other focused on other domains like the IoT Working Group. With Java EE migrating to the Eclipse Foundation under the name of Jakarta EE, that’s a whole new ecosystem for enterprise Java that joins the ecosystem.
Since 2013, the Eclipse Foundation Europe has been a partner of several European research projects, with the main mission to help the partners create an open source community to foster dissemination and make the results sustainable.
This presentation will quickly introduce the principles of the Eclipse ecosystem, the technology landscape of the Eclipse Foundation, and how the Eclipse Foundation helps universities in Europe to publish their research results in open source.
