EclipseCon 09 - Week-end before and first day

We arrived with Cedric Friday night in Silicon Valley. Flight trip was an opportunity to try SWTBot and look at current GEF Support.

Saturday morning we decided to see the Googleplex. It was not as easy to find as we originally thought, I mean without looking on google maps or taking the address before :P

At least we found one of their office

as well as their own street

and their famous google cars

On the afternoon we went to San Francisco downtown to enjoy the city and do some shopping. Apple store was an occasion to admire their laptops and ask a seller some facts to convince our Boss that our productivity will increase with them :)

On Sunday we went to Berkeley university, where we met sociable squirrels !

First day of EclipseCon was a lot of fun. There seems to be less people than last year but people are still friendly and enthusiasts.

At morning I attended Ketan great SWTBot tutorial, which was successful as room was filled to the brim.

At the end of afternoon Acceleo "Best Open Source Eclipse-Based Developer Tool" award was the pleasantly surprise. Thanks for the community for this great recognition of our work at Obeo !
