Sadness

That’s too sad!  EclipseCon Europe  finished yesterday. It was again a great conference, with inspiring talks and excellent discussions with different members of the Eclipse community. These moments with our community are motivating us to prepare the future of Eclipse Sirius . So what’s next? What would we cook for you in Eclipse Oxygen? As we already said in our talk, we are already preparing the...

Anger

Do you ever feel that? This week I often dreamt I had the gift of ubiquity… I could replicate myself and be in several places at once. It would be a really useful skill to participate to EclipseCon Europe. I am angry to not be able to see all the talks I would have liked to attend. Happily, as every year all the slides will be available on the EclipseCon website and most of the talks are recorded ...

Fear

Wednesday will be a huge day for Obeo at EclipseCon Europe 2016 . You will find several talks about Eclipse Sirius in the program, and one thing for you, you have to attend our talk about Sirius 4.1: Let Me Sirius That For You! As usual when I have to give a talk I am a little frightened but in fact I love this feeling which pushes me to do my best :) Our slides are ready, our demo is exciting, no...

As the team behind Sirius, what matters most to us is to be sure that our final users never feel this about our product. That’s why in each release we wor...

Joy

This week I am participating to EclipseCon Europe to present what’s new in Eclipse Sirius 4.1. What I feel like on monday morning: Joy! On Monday evening I’ll be in Ludwigsburg for EclipseCon! This one is little special as it will be my first one as an official Sirius committer. I am really happy to introduce you to the new features of the 4.1 release, especially what we did to improve the specifi...

Sirius 4.1

When I was a child one of my favorite game was Puzzle Bobble , you may remember these two little dragons Bub and Bob. What I loved in this game : simple rules, easy to play and so very addictive . This is exactly what I feel when I think about the new Properties View feature in Eclipse Sirius : The rules are really simple as it is the same as the ones existing for the other Sirius representations ...
