Finalized EclipseCon 2011 Keynotes

Hey guys, just wanted to let you know that we finalized the EclipseCon 2011 keynotes!

Todd Lipcon will introduce Apache Hadoop and share his experience of working with large scale software systems. Mark Reinhold and John Duimovich will discuss the future of Java and in particular, OpenJDK. Finally, we’ll have David Gondek from the IBM Watson Strategy Team talk a bit about IBM Watson.

I find it interesting that Watson was mostly written in Java (with a smattering of Prolog and C++). If you’re curious how the machine works, check out this interview by the IBM Watson team. Oh, and please remember to register for EclipseCon if you haven’t already! I look forward to seeing everyone at the conference.
