The Dutch Eclipse Day presents the unique opportunity to learn first-hand how Eclipse technologies are successful applied in complex, embedded systems. The presentations cover both tools specifically targeted at embedded systems as well as the application of Eclipse technologies in specific embedded domains.


The presentations are of interest to R&D managers, software architects, engineers, in fact everybody who is interested to learn how Eclipse technologies can successfully be applied in the development of embedded systems. And best of all, the entrance is free.


The Dutch Eclipse Day is organized in a joined effort by Altran and Sioux and supported by the Eclipse Foundation. The main goal is to facilitate the knowledge and experience exchange between Eclipse technologies and their applications on one hand and the embedded system industry in the Netherlands on the other hand.

Eclipse technologies support a broad range of embedded system domains

The technologies and tools offered by the Eclipse Foundation has grown significantly, including technologies specifically targeted at embedded systems. Embedded systems range from very small devices (like the wireless contact switch in the wall) to very large and complex systems like wafer steppers or the numerous control units in modern cars. In all these domains, Eclipse technologies are already being used, either during development or in the resulting products. Beginning with applying Eclipse technologies is not evident. Knowing what technologies exists and what would fit best for a particular system is challenging. The Dutch Eclipse Day presents the opportunity to hear and learn first-hand about some of the Eclipse technologies and how Eclipse technologies are being used in specific domains.
