[eclipse.org-architecture-council] Orion Summit, March 17/18, Santa Clara, CA

Greetings folks.

An Orion Summit has been scheduled for March 17/18 (the week before
EclipseCon 2011) and--as thought leaders in our community--it would be
really helpful if you could attend.

Boris has provided details below (including sign up information).

In case you haven't already heard about Orion, Orion's objective is to
create a browser-based open tool integration platform which is entirely
focused on developing for the web, in the web. Tools are written in
JavaScript and run in the browser. Unlike other attempts at creating
browser-based development tools, this is not an IDE running in a single
tab. Links work and can be shared. You can open a file in a new tab.
Great care has been taken to provide a web experience for development.

Thanks,

Wayne

The planning for an Orion Summit has become more concrete. It will be
held on Thursday/Friday March 17th/18th in California. See below for
more detailed information about logistics.

The reason for the summit is bring together individuals and
organizations that are interested in the future of the Orion open source
project. The goal of the summit is to produce a project proposal to
formally start a dedicated project for Orion at eclipse.org. This
project proposal will determine the scope of the project, and the list
of initial committers.

With the new date (just before EclipseCon) and location (Silicon
Valley), we are trying to ensure the broadest possible participation. A
lot of the people that we would like to have show up either work on the
U.S. West Coast, or are already part of the Eclipse community and are
likely to travel to EclipseCon around that time anyway.

We'll start on Thursday March 17th at 1 p.m and end on Friday March 18th
at 4 p.m. I would like to use the first day for brainstorming, initial
technical discussions and questions, but also for getting to know each
other and socializing. Plan on spending the evening with us if you can.
On the second day, we should work on getting consensus on scope and
direction for Orion, and talk about short-term, medium-term, and
long-term plans for the project.

The exact location depends on how many people sign up and hasn't been
arranged yet. It will be somewhere near Mountain View/Santa Clara, CA.

Please add yourself to the wiki page if you would like to attend, so
that we can gauge interest and reserve meeting space:

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Thanks,
Boris
