Experience Report from JavaLand 2017

More than rollercoasters

I really like going to software conferences. I get the chance to learn new things, to meet other developers and to discuss code and software architectures. And of course, I like JavaLand because of its rollercoasters. :)

BSI has been present at the JavaLand conference since its inception in 2014 with the goal to present our open-source framework Eclipse Scout to the participants. During these events I stopped counting the number of many times I explained the Eclipse Public License (EPL), why we decided to host the Scout framework with the Eclipse Foundation and what benefits we get in return for our project and for our company. And particularly, that Eclipse is not just an IDE but an open source community of a very broad set of projects and collaborative working groups in the domains of internet of things, science, embedded systems and many other interesting areas.
