Connecting Eclipse to the Cloud-Based Era of Developer Tooling with Project Flux

Date: Tuesday, April 22, 2014
Time: 10:00AM PDT (San Francisco UTC-07:00)

Speaker: Martin Lippert

The Eclipse IDE (as one example) is great, but increasingly we are seeing new projects and companies working in the cloud-based developer tooling space, using a front-end that runs purely in the browser. The Eclipse Orion project is one example of this. While the new approaches look promising, they are usually completely disconnected from the existing desktop-class IDEs and are still lightyears away from working well for Java developers.

In this webinar Martin Lippert will provide a sneak peek into Project Flux, a new project that is hosted at Eclipse and that we've been working on that aims at bridging this gap between existing desktop-class IDEs and future cloud-based developer tooling. While this project is still far away from shipping a ready-to-use release, the webinar provides an insight into the prototype and what is coming in the future. We will also have a special guest introduction from Mike Milinkovich, Executive Director of the Eclipse Foundation.
