Eclipse Banking Day in Copenhagen - just around the corner

In just two weeks, we will have an Eclipse Banking Day in Copenhagen. The event takes place at IBM's offices in Lyngby north of Copenhagen on June, 1. As of this moment there are 80 registered participants, so we have room for just a few more.

For those that don't know yet, here is the official description of the event:
Eclipse Banking Day is a day-long event for senior technical developers, architects and managers in the finance industry to learn how to better leverage Eclipse technology and the Eclipse community as part of their development strategy. The event will focus on three themes:
  • Eclipse as a platform for application development;
  • Leveraging Eclipse modeling technology for data exchange; and
  • Collaborating with the open source community.
Attendees will have the chance to hear speakers from leading financial institutions and experts from the Eclipse community. This event builds on the success of Eclipse Banking Days in London, New York and Frankfurt.

Attendees to the event must be employees or contractors of a financial institution. There is no cost to attend but pre-registration is required.

We found many different and varied speakers - some with a banking background and some with a technical background - some of them are:
  • Mike Milinkovich, director of Eclipse Foundation, giving the keynote.
  • Martin von Haller Grønbæk, IT-attorney, who speaks about the legal issues surrounding licensing and IP rights
  • Jochen Krause, Eclipse Source, talking about RAP and how an RCP application can be presented in a web browser
  • Oliver Wolf, SOREPA, talking about SOA technologies in Eclipse
  • Patrik Tennberg, Nordea, talking about their RCP application in the bank
  • And many more
The full program is found here. There will also be ample opportunity to talk with all these people during the day.

We have room for 100 people from the financial world in the Nordic countries (Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland) which helps determine the development strategy of their firms. It's typically people from banks, insurance companies, pension funds, and mortgage companies with titles such as CTO, development manager, system architect and the like.

Eclipse Banking Day is sponsored by BSI AG, EclipseSpource, the Eclipse Foundation, IBM, Instantiations, Purple Scout, ReportSoft, SOPERA and the RCP Company. The support provided by these organizations has made it possible to offer this event free of charge to participants.
