So you did not get your talk accepted to Eclipsecon, do not threat. You can still get the information out to the attendees. Try holding a BOF (Birds of a Feather). Due to timing constraints for the Turmeric project from eBay, we weren’t able to provide enough detail to the planning committee to get a talk on the program; however, we are going to hold a BOF on March 22, 2011.
A BOF allows you to explore topics in a more relaxed atmosphere. It is also a great way to meet the committers and other community members working on the project. A BOF does not have to be about coding, it can really be anything you want it to be about. It is a great way for those new or smaller projects to get some exposure.
So if you are interested in learning more about Turmeric and in particular the Eclipse development tools aspects of the project, plan to stop by the BOF.
