EclispeCon Recommended Tracks

EclipseCon is one month away. If you have not registered, now is the time to take care of it at the EclipseCon site. The quality and diversity of this years talks is truly amazing. There really is something for everyone. In the world of reporting, you have four tutorials, five long talks, two demos and three short tutorials to choose from. I have created my recommended track list, which you can review on the EclipseCon site here. Or you can just read on.

NOTE: I will be a the Actuate Booth for most of the day on Tuesday and Wednesday between sessions. Drop on by and say hi.

Monday - Tutorial day
New To BIRT? Then the all day tutorial Building Reports with BIRT will provide a great intro to BIRT.

Advanced BIRT? If you have been working with BIRT for a while and are looking to get into some deeper details of the BIRT framework, there are four excellent tutorials.
08:00 - 10:00 Open Data Access - Extension framework for adding Custom Data Sources
10:30 - 1230 Eclipse Chart Engine API and Integration
13:00 - 14:00 Extending BIRT
14:20 - 16:30 Report Integration - The BIRT API's

09:00 Scott Adams Keynote This should be really good.

11:10 Extending WTP Using Project Facets or panel Eclipse RCP: Experiences along the way no, its not BIRT but both of these look good to me.
13:30 BIRT: Introduction to the Eclipse Business Intelligence & Reporting Tools Project Paul Clenahan provides an intro to the whole BIRT project.
14:30 Experiences of a DTP Adopter DTP is like a sister project to BIRT, this presentation from an Oracle developer promises to be interesting.
15:30 Building the 100 Bundle Application This OSGi presentation should be very interesting to anyone using Eclipse component based development.

09:00 Robert Lefkowitz Keynote
If you don't know rOml, here is a comment from his OSCON key note. "This was a fantastic keynote. He started with a tomato and eventually wound his way around a discussion of the quantification of open source. It was hillarious and interested…fantastic."
