Virtual Meetup - Why chose Eclipse Theia?

Hi Community,

I am happy to announce that this Thursday (the 2nd of December), Marc Dumais will hold the discussion about “Why chose Eclipse Theia?”

Also, remember that we changed the link to join the Meetup!

Theia is an increasingly popular, fully open-source framework, used to develop highly customizable Cloud and desktop IDE products, from a single code base. In this talk, we will present an overview of the reasons why Theia was created 5 years ago, that still make it a good choice, today. So, join us on December 2nd for this Strumenta Community virtual meetup and learn why the Theia framework, or a Theia-based application, such as Theia Blueprint (1), might be the best choice for you too, that ticks all the boxes with regard to technology, extensibility, openness, community and more!

Marc Dumais has been working at Ericsson for over 20 years, developing tools that help boost the productivity of colleagues developing cellular infrastructure. In the last 10 years, he has been involved in open-source software, leveraging the vast bounty of community-contributed software, to help fulfil his employer’s needs. He has been involved early on, co-leading the Eclipse Theia project and leading the internal Ericsson Team that contributes to the project daily.

And if you are thinking of proposing a talk, it is time to come forward. Just let me know by replying to this message.

How to connect

To avoid other security issues is now necessary to register for the meeting. The registration should be necessary just once and be valid for all the next meetings you will participate in. I understand it is a little extra effort, but it would avoid problems like the ones we encountered:

Registration for the Virtual Meetup

P.S. We get a recurring question: “Are presentations recorded?”. The answer is not, and the reasons are explained here On recording Virtual Meetups - #7 by voelter
