I briefly broke my mantra this afternoon and went to a session on Java Studio Creator. I lasted just past the agenda before I walked out. It looked to be a justification talk - telling us that Creator was made for corporate dummies that don't write code for a living. I skipped across the hall to a session on developing plugins for Eclipse. It was quite interesting and really made it look easy to develop plugins. I almost fell asleep quite a few times, but that's probably from the booze still peculating in my veins.
The best thing I got from the talk was tips and tricks for developing with Eclipse. I watched Eric Gamma do a lot of shortcuts to and quick fixes that I didn't know about. I probably won't remember them past today, but they were cool nevertheless. Now I'm off to the hotel to charge my camera and get ready to pull an all-nighter before our early-morning departure.
