Patrick Wagstrom, a Ph.D. candidate in the Carnegie Mellon University Engineering and Public Policy department, will speak on the subject of his thesis research - Eclipse: What you can learn from a community that is more than an IDE.

Java and C developers are familiar with Eclipse as a robust development environment, but it's actually much more. Eclipse has grown into a robust framework for developing applications on desktops, servers, and the web thanks to more than 180 companies and 800+ developers contributing to 90+ projects. This talk highlights some of the projects in Eclipse that you may not be as familiar with and discusses how your project can excel thanks to lessons learned from the Eclipse Foundation.
