Epicenter 2010 Dublin – register now!

with 2 comments

At last, after a belated spring has sprung, and the local flora are finally catching up with their deadlines, we have the usual Epicenter Early Bird Closing date heaving into view. Well – it’s more already sitting on your lap, since today is the last Early Bird registration day. Run, don’t walk, to the tickets page.

Epicenter is in its second year and is well on the way to being Ireland’s top software conference. Good news for the local islanders – no jousting with ash clouds or having to urinate into a bottle on a Ryanair flight because you haven’t got change for the toilets! The conference is your typical multi-zone, multi-track affair, with each day focussed on a different technology or industry subject. Check out the website at epicenter.ie, scroll down the page for information on the speakers and talks.

There’s a good selection of speakers – Jeff Genender will be speaking, as will Eugene Ciurana – both well-known Open Source stalwarts. Matt Raible will join them, as will Eclipse Ecosystem buddy Doug Clarke. I’ve heard that the ever-Groovy Guillaume Laforge will be making an appearance too, but I can’t find his name on the website. Maybe I wasn’t meant to write that down. Ooops.

Just in case you are reading this and would like to help out from a sponsorship aspect, there are all sorts of packages that start off at an accessible €200. You would think that even Enterprise Ireland and the IDA should be able to manage to find that much down the back of the sofa for one of the biggest software conferences held in the country 🙂

Since Epicenter is in June, I’ve half a mind to see if I can get some people together for an Eclipse Demo Camp maybe before or after the main event. Leave a comment if you would be interested in attending or presenting a demo.

I’m off to register now – hope to see you there!

  1. I’d attend an Eclipse Demo Camp. I’m using Eclipse only a little lately (to write Palm WebOS apps) but I’d like to see what else is going on with it.

    I’ll be at Epicenter 2010 too.

  2. Look forward to seeing you both at this year’s Irish Software Show. Once again, we have Doug Clarke, head of the TopLink project making the trip from Oracle Canada – here’s some further details… http://epicenter.ie/2010.html?zone_id=20&speaker=125#zones
