An I get pretty excited, there's a whole lot of interesting events coming up!
While it is not really in May yet, I'm looking forward to traveling to Düsseldorf on Thursday, April 26 for the Eclipse evening of the Java User Group Düsseldorf. If you don't have plans for the evening yet, come and join us. You'll hear some from me (keep it short, Ralph) and then the more interesting technical program including talks about Eclipse 4 (the next big thing), XText (modeling magic) and the ALM / delivery productivity gains that you can experience with Eclipse technology. After the talks there shall be some beer, right?
Early May will get me to Italy. On May 2nd we are invited at an air-defense engineering school near Naples to speak about Open Source in general and Polarsys in particular to the staff there. Would be great if we can get them to join the Polarsys community.
On May 4th we will attend the Eclipse Day in Florence. The folks from RCP-Vision have put together a quite rich program for you. But really doubt that it was too hard to attract speakers to come to Florence in May :-)
From the 22nd to the 25th I will be in Toulouse. Here we have a lot of stuff going on: On the 23rd we'll have parallel meetings of the Automotive IWG and Polarsys, and on the 24th the next edition of the Eclipse Day Toulouse will take place.
As not all the information for Toulouse is available, please register to the Auto IWG - and the Polarsys mailing lists if you would like to know more about these events.
I look forward to meeting you.
PS: I was making my travel arrangements for Toulouse over the weekend. Be advised that the many hotels in the city are already sold out. You better move fast if you don't want to stay at the airport :-)
