Thanks for attending the Democamp in Zurich

Last week June 27th, the Eclipse community in Zurich gathered for the 2nd Eclipse democamp in Zurich

Prior to the democamp, we offered a Scout introduction to build a small Scout application.
The participant were working with their laptop computers implemented their first Scout application from scratch.

At 5.30 PM the sessions started at the main building of the ETH in HG D 1.1.

Tom Schindl was the first presenter. He started the demo camp with showing off the possibilities of JavaFX in various use cases. Desktop, embedded and even mobile.
Next was Karsten Thoms with Spray, an effort to create a set of DSL to define Graphiti based graphical editors. Dietmar Stoll presented the Xtend active annotation feature and Serano Colameo had his Minstorm robot dance to the tune of his Lego DSL. In the last session before the break Lorenzo Bettini demonstrated how to use Xbase to create Java like languages.

After the break, Mike Milinkovich talked about machine to machine (m2m) Eclipse projects and would have loved to run his many gadgets live. Unfortunately the infrastructure was not up to the desired setup – but we will work on this and might get Mike back again next year for this demo. In the next session Andreas Hoegger and Matthias Zimmermann demoed the new Eclipse Scout features, building mobile applications with Scout and writing large, modular applications. In the last session René Eigenheer presented the lessons learned from a real life project setup integrating Scout, Spring and Hibernate to modernize a legacy business application.

And finally, everybody got his/her well deserved beer.

Thanks again for attending, speaking, and/or sponoring! See you again next year :-)
