The City Hall and the Forum
I'm back from the Eclipse Summit Europe held last week in Esslingen, Germany. Also attended the Eclipse Council meetings at the same time, though in a different building. The Summit was held in the Neckar Forum, and the Council meetings in the historic city hall. This brought to mind the notion of the Cathedral and the Bazaar. In this case, however, we have the City Hall and the Forum! Is Eclipse the City Hall, a Forum, or something else?
Anyway, the Summit was great -- I really enjoyed the scheduling which gave ample time for informal meetings, without missing the main sessions.
