EclipseCon France - Wrap up

I had a pleasure to take part in the EclipseCon held for the first time in France. Here are is my main observation:
Java has more in common with javascript than continental breakfast with breakfast.

Also, for the first time, there was a true coming out of people adjusting and packaging inhouse flavour of Eclipse. A few of my live-recorded tweets:

So, it's all about having a few people in an organization that know tools, and prepare tools for others. It just looks like the idea of "bring your own device" policy was wrong. A corporation needs standards. Period. And it's much better to have a team designated only to free software management than allow your employees to invent the wheel again and again.

I wish all those eclipse builders contributed back!

What's more, I believe that the future belongs to those small, single-purposed IDEs, and kind of natural consequence will be equally precise a IDE in the browser, where you rather point&click required solution rather than spending a couple of days figuring out how to set up certain tools to build a server app and then a mobile app. Ideally I'd like to be able to say "yes" to this tweet:

That's said, Eclipse was included into the Red Hat Developer Toolset. The Developer Toolset is a set of tools that work together, and are decoupled from the underlying base, so you will be able to use a stable work environment and up-to-date development tools, without configuring things by yourself!
