|Re: [ecf-dev] ECF weekly conference calls|
Hi all, I'm back from the dead :) I transitioned to a new job within Lotus and start this month, my focus will be 100% OSGi Services (Equinox), particuarly looking at the Declarative Services impl first ;)
I second the motion of having some conference calls to keep everyone in touch.
I just gave a presentation today at the Rational Software Development Conference (http://dev.eclipse.org/viewcvs/index.cgi/org.eclipse.ecf/tutorials/RSDC%202006/?cvsroot=Technology_Project). There was alot of positive feedback. There was someone in the audience that was really interested in adding shared debugging support, I pointed him to this mailing list so hopefully he'll swing by ;)
Also, some of you may be interested in what I did on a 90 minute plane ride. So, Wayne Beaton has this new RCP application (http://wbeaton.blogspot.com/2006/06/eclipse-sudoku.html) which is a Sudoku RCP app. On my way over to the conference, I decided to see if I could "ECF-enable" (by ECF enable, I mean I hacked in datashare usage to allow for simple multiplayer sudoku, there are threading issues though, probably the worst code I produced in a while, etc etc...) this application (http://mea-bloga.blogspot.com/2006/06/sudoku-on-plane.html) before my laptop battery died on the plane. It turns out I was moderately successful, but the point being, I think if someone actually had sometime to add in better UI for the ECF portion (add a little UI to connect to a server, show who else is willing to do multiplayer sudoku... etc...). I think this would make a great demo for what ECF can do for RCP :) Plus, games are fun.
Also, as a reminder. If people have spare cycles, the Summer of Code students are usually on IRC (irc://irc.freenode.net/#eclipse-soc). Any help they can get would be great. Plus, the more ECF people on IRC, the better (http://wiki.eclipse.org/index.php/IRC)
Hope all is well for everyone.
