If you love or hate XML, and want to learn more or throw rotten tomatoes, you can pull your hair out or jump for joy by learning XSLT and XSL Tools. Learn what is available to help make your XML life easier at the XML Development Tools talk. Haven’t had enough of the Automotive industry? Get your automotive industry angst out with a talk on how Dealership Automotive Business Standards complent the Eclipse Foundation.
As for suggestions to the program committee…if you don’t pick one of mine..you’ll have a visit from Tiny, The Wedge, and The Club. Seriously though, I would go for some newer material where possible. Some of the talks are by the same people, on the same topics (take a look at 2005, 2006, and 2007 EclipseCon presentations). A little variety is good now and again.
