Eclipse, from the Linux perspective
Eclipse, a software development environment and an extensible plug-in
platform, is closer to the Linux community than many Linux enthusiasts may
think. Eclipse has a vibrant community of contributors of plug-ins and
patches. Eclipse is governed by the Eclipse Foundation, a not-for-profit
corporation (even though it was born in a corporation, IBM.) Each Eclipse
installation comes with all the source code, supporting Linux enthusiasts'
practice of hacking-code-to-make-people's-lives-easier. Started a couple
of years ago, the Eclipse Linux Tools project provides better support for
Linux developers, including integration with native development tools such
as GNU Autotools and best practices for packaging. This project has also
helped several Linux distributions with packaging of Eclipse itself.
Eclipse's license is relatively friendly, further promoting the submission
In this talk, Annie will explore these synergies of Eclipse and Linux. She
will then dive into Eclipse hacking, both for customizing Eclipse for
yourself or your organization, and for contributing patches and plug-ins
back to the community.

Annie Ying's professional life has been revolving around Eclipse for ten
years, first as an intern at Eclipse's place of birth. After finishing a
Master's degree in Computer Science in 2003, she had worked for IBM Watson

Eclipse. Currently, she is inventing the next generation programming tools
as a PhD student in Computer Science at McGill University in Canada.
Please note that this meeting will be held at IBM, 590 Madison Ave,

Coding Workshops/Hacking Society:
This is a group of people that wants to learn about and work on coding
in Python, Smalltalk, Ruby, C++, and other languages, and hack on code.
There will also be help given for those who wish to install Linux for the
