19:30 - 20:30 Help Microsoft design the next generation of their Java tools! (presented by Microsoft) At Microsoft we're always looking for feedback on our tools and advice on how we can make them better. Come to this BoF to help us design the next generation of our Java developer and administration experience in our free, open source Azure Toolkit for Eclipse, which supports creation, development, testing, and deployment of applications to Azure Cloud Services from Eclipse. If you’re a Jenkins or Hudson user, we'd also appreciate feedback on improving our free, open source Jenkins and Hudson plugins. Help Microsoft design the next generation of their Java tools!

Building with BIRT (presented by Actuate) Bring your BIRT questions to this interactive session. This BoF will be the place to meet our experts and discuss the various ways BIRT-based analytics and visualizations can be integrated into applications from APIs to web apps and even smart watches. We’ll also go hands-on with the new REST API and interactive documentation included with free BIRT iHub F-Type report server. Building with BIRT (presented by Actuate)
Eclipse and The Cloud Hosted Development Platform (2-hour BoF - presented by Oracle) Cloud has emerged as a leading platform for application deployment, but can it act as the platform for application development? How do you integrate Eclipse and Mylyn with cloud hosted ALM solutions? How does Hudson continuous integration work in such an environment? What features should you be looking for when picking up a cloud platform for your development team? Join us as we discuss and demonstrate the emerging trends in cloud based enterprise application development. Please note that this BoF is from 19:30 - 21:30.

Maptime! Hand Drawn Maps (2-hour BoF) Run by: Beth Schechter & Lyzi Diamond We all love maps for the web, but sometimes it's nice to take a break from the screen and bust out the pens and paper. Hand Drawn Maps gives us that opportunity, enabling us to celebrate maps in a lo-fi and low stress way. Join us for an hour of drawing and tracing at this special Maptime. Bring maps to trace and/or your favorite pens, pencils and markers. Please note that this BoF is from 19:30 - 21:30. Maptime! Hand Drawn Maps (2-hour BoF)
Mapbox for Education (presented by Mapbox) Come and learn how to use Mapbox tools and guides in the classroom. This is an interactive session - if you're already using Mapbox for education, come share your experience! Mapbox for Education (presented by Mapbox)
JVM Map Rendering The OSGeo code sprint had some great discussion around map rendering. This BOF is a follow up to explore: 1) Round extending the GeoTools rendering engine across a cluster. 2) The JAI-Ext improves JAI use for spatial data (support for nodata, performance, new operations). For more information see https://github.com/geosolutions-it/jai-ext/wiki 3) Use of JAI as an image processing engine - explore JAI migration/rewriting options with interested parties (JAI has been orphaned by Oracle) 4) JVM rendering performance has been bottle necked. Compare notes using marlin Java 2D... JVM Map Rendering
Making your own terrain maps Run by: Seth Fitzsimmons & Alan McConchie, Stamen Design Anyone who’s tried to stitch together multiple terrain data sets knows that it can be tricky business. To address this challenge, Stamen is working on a grant from the Knight Foundation to create a comprehensive open source terrain map of the world. Join us to talk about open terrain data (and open source pipelines), what you’d want to do with it, and the kind of minimal documentation you’d ideally need to deploy it. Your feedback will help us create a system that allows for people to easily contribute and use... Making your own terrain maps
20:30 - 21:30 Let's Talk Application Insights (presented by Microsoft) How do you leverage availability, performance... Let's Talk Application Insights (presented by Microsoft)
EMFForms, EMF Client Platform, EMFStore and EDAPT Meet the project leads of EMFForms, EMF Client Platform, EMFStore and EDAPT in this interactive and informal session. Discuss your use cases, ask technical questions, discuss new feature requests and most importantly: get to know the people creating the technology as well as other users.

Point Clouds over the Web This is a session for those interested in contributing to the Pointdown Project, a nascent effort to openly describe and develop a service definition for point cloud data consumption on the web. See the mailing list for details: http://lists.osgeo.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/pointdown Point Clouds over the Web
A Vision of the Eclipse Developers Platform How will the developer's platform change over the next three years? Will you still be using desktop-based development tools? Cloud-based software development options are getting more powerful, but will they completely replace the desktop? For a certain set of developers, cloud-based software development tools will be a natural fit. But the desktop will remain viable and vibrant well into the future: for many classes of problem, the desktop is the right solution. Come to this BoF to share in a vision of the future of the Eclipse Developer's Platform. A Vision of the Eclipse Developers Platform
