Eclipse/Toolmakers’ Day is an event created for the tool developer community. This is a workshop that highlights how the most successful engineering companies build in-house software tools to stay ahead of the competition. Our workshop features a selection of Hungarian and international speakers from a wide spectrum of software-intensive engineering domains including automotive, telecommunication, energy, avionics, and Internet-of-Things. The main technological theme of the workshop is centered around the Eclipse open source ecosystem, which is currently at the forefront of tool development innovation. Eclipse is now far more than just a Java IDE. It is a rich software platform that encompasses programming languages, tools, protocols and frameworks from an exceptionally wide range of domains.

This open event features several speakers with 45 minute presentations. There is no special target audience, we just ask for you to come, listen and ask any questions you may have on the subject matter. Our workshop is meant to benefit anyone who is developing software engineering tools, either as part of an open source or in-house project. We believe that these talks will be of tremendous value to any technical lead or software developer working within engineering companies in critical embedded systems domains.

Topics and key takeaways: 

  • Learn about how custom tools can enhance not only software, but complete systems engineering processes
  • Boost developer productivity via software modeling and code generation 
  • Improve documentation and stakeholder communication
  • Shorten time-to-market, even within extreme domains such as high-risk R&D

The workshop will feature two sessions:

  • The morning session will focus on tool development innovations in Hungary, with a special concentration on the automotive and telecommunication domains. 
  • The afternoon session will feature key members of the international Eclipse community and cover a wide range of topics including systems engineering tools, collaborative technologies, and domain-specific languages.
