I managed to get to Vienna Helios DemoCamp which took places yesterday (June 25th 2010). There’ve been some very interesting presentations about different Eclipse Projects (EMFStore and EMFCP, Object Teams, redView, …).
I gave a presentation at around 23:00 (it was my first talk with a beer next to me 🙂 in the night about the e4/4.0 SDK but the interest in the topic was so huge that instead of talking for 15 minutes it finally lasted about an hour. I always appreciate that when you start explaining people the ideas, the problems we are having in the current codebase they start to understand why we think we need a new revised platform.
Part of my demostration has been:
- Demoing the 4.0 SDK RC0 (i used to write a small e4-RCP-Application)
- Demoing our Model-Application-Tooling which can be used at development time and lately also at runtime to inspect your running Workbench-Instance and modify it on the fly (a dedicated post about the news on the Workbench-Model-Tooling will follow later)
- I showed of our DI-Programming-Model by turning a Stand-alone SWT-Dialog into a Part-Showing up in a RCP-Application
