Tuesday from 10:30 AM til 11:20 AM

The Eclipse Java IDE is the product of work done by several Eclipse open source projects that coordinate their efforts via an annual simultaneous release. In this session, we'll discuss some of the cool features in 2016's Neon release and provide a preview of what's exciting in 2017's Oxygen release (which will include, among other things, support for Java 9). In addition to the new features, we'll show off some cool features (like super-smart code completion, integration with Gerrit, and many tips and tricks) that you may have missed to show you how to be just a bit more productive with your Eclipse Java IDE.
