Just to mention that I'll be giving a keynote lecture at the Eclipse Summit in Ludwigsburg, Germany on Wed 28 Oct. 2009.
I haven't been to EclipseCon before. am looking forward to learning a lot about the Eclipse community. In the past few years, my work has been in the context of Visual Studio, but I've definitely learned that there is much that the various IDE communities can share and learn from each other.
If you're planning on attending, drop me a note or stop by after the talk.
