EclipseCon poll results

On Wednesday I asked you a few questions about your EclipseCon experience.. Here are the results:

39 this.is.my.first.eclipsecon.ever.its.going.to.be.great---they.say.you.buy.beers

Welcome to all the newcomers! Look for me at the bar and I'll buy you a beer *


36 please.set.up.a.better.404.page.for.eclipsecon

Popular option... Ask and you shall receive. Go look...


30 ive.been.to.many.eclipsecons---why-have-you-never-bought-me-a-beer

Sorry if I've missed you... Hopefully I'll do a better job this year *


27 ive.been.to.all.the.eclipsecons---and.I.know.you.buy.beers

Yes, I know who you are... Quite a costly bunch :)


25 ive.been.to.a.couple.of.eclipsecons---I-prefer-to-run-than-drink-beer

If running wasn't so early in the morning, I'd likely join you. I'll try this year -- I might actually make it a few feet.

Some other responses and comments I've received:

webmaster.not.going.this.year.will.miss.the.beers

That's really unfortunate -- there's always EclipseCon Europe, and EclipseCon 2012


webmaster.ive.never.been.at.eclipsecon---please-send-beer-to-france

I can't really send beer to France but here's what I can do: to the person who posted this, send me an email to webmaster@eclipse.org. If your IP address matches up to that comment in my Apache log, I'll send you some Eclipse SWAG!

webmaster.ive.been.to.all.the.eclipsecons---and.I.know.you.buy.beers----altough-thats-not-entirely-true----well-its-not-true-that-ive-been-to-all-eclipsecons-but-you-guys-always-bought-beers

I'm so confused :)

webmaster.i'd.buy.you.a.beer.if.i.were.going.but.unfortunately.i'm.not.(sad.smily)
webmaster.i.am.not.going.to.make.it--can-you-mail-me-the-beer?

It's too bad you can't come ... I hope to see you next year.

Is everyone ready for EclipseCON?

Only five days until the big event begins (well, four days, if you consider the conference to officially kick-off Sunday evening at the bar).

If you want to distribute large files (or many files) to fellow attendees, upload your files to download.eclipse.org ASAP, since download.eclipse.org will be mirrored at the conference centre in its entirety -- including Nightly builds.

As per the tradition, here's a whacky webmaster poll to scope out the conference newcomers and veterans. Please choose one of the following options -- results will be posted tomorrow:
