From 25th − 28th March 2013, the Eclipse community will meet in Boston (Massachusetts) for their annual conference. As a strategic member of the Eclipse Foundation, itemis will also showcase their latest technology at EclipseCon 2013. In a three-hour tutorial advanced Java developers will learn the development of their own domain specific languages (DSL). In other Sessions we present the newest features of the Java extension Xtend, a DSL for describing EMF models.
From March 25th - 28th 2013 the EclipseCon developing community is meeting in Boston, Massachusetts for their annual conference.
itemis, being among the bronze-sponsors, is pleased to contribute to the Worlds biggest Eclipse Community events' Succes through various lectures and workshops.
See http://www.eclipsecon.org/2013/program/session-schedule and http://www.eclipsecon.org/2013/program/session-schedule/tutorials for the current EclipseCon program with all sessions and tutorials.
