Largest Gathering of India's Eclipse Community

In the week when a total solar eclipse of the longest duration in 21st century held special interest for scientists and general public as its path of totality passed through thickly populated western, central, eastern and northeastern regions of India, Bangalore in South India was witness to an Eclipse summit of a different kind. Over 400 Eclipse users, enthusiasts and professionals, gathered at the Chancery Pavilion July 17-18 to learn and celebrate the success of an ecosystem that was benefiting from quick time-to-market and standardized user experiences by building their tools using Eclipse technology.

With keynotes, sessions and workshops that were oriented to cater to the pulse of the Eclipse ecosystem in India, the 2009 edition of Saltmarch Media's annual Eclipse India Summit (EIS) provided attendees with a hands-on understanding of product development essentials, modeling techniques, eDevelopment and most importantly the insider information on how companies and individuals are planning to harness Eclipse today, and in the future. For both veterans and newcomers to the world of Eclipse, EIS 2009 provided participants with a well-balanced learning experience that guaranteed they went back with a richer understanding of the technologies that make a difference to their careers.

"The mandate at Eclipse India Summit (EIS) is to nurture the Eclipse ecosystem in India, empower it with information, and create proactive committers and contributors who can plough back their efforts to global Eclipse development. The inaugural edition has provided a great beginning and impetus to this mandate," said Dilip Thomas, Program Chair and CEO of Saltmarch Media.

The two-day summit featured intensive talks for developers using Eclipse tools and technologies, covered through seven 180-minute well-researched workshops belonging to one of the two levels: Intermediate OR Advanced, eleven 45-minute focused sessions, and three 30-minute technical keynotes. A true community event, EIS features "Community to Community" Speakers, independent and industry experts.

Eclipse India Summit 2009 is a Saltmarch Media production, in association with AnCiT Consulting. The summit is supported by some of the world's largest IT companies including IBM, Oracle, Microsoft, Actuate, Adobe, Progress Software, 3i-infotech and Valtech among others.
