Modern IDEs aim to maximize programmer productivity by providing a wealth of features such as easy code navigation, automatic refactoring and integrated toolchains and debuggers. The Eclipse platform is the poster child for today's IDE. It provides the base for arguably the best development environment available today for Java and C/C++ as well as the host for countless other general purpose and domain specific languages.

This talks looks into the history of the Eclipse project, it's renowned plug-in architecture as well as several powerful features of the platform. This talk will also demonstrate how you can build plug-ins to create your very own IDE. It will also take a look at what the future might hold for tomorrow's IDE.

Admission: Free, but to gain admission please email your name to our Membership Secretary, Dr Frank Martin, at
