XtextCON is the place for new users to learn Xtext quickly and for experienced language designers to understand advanced use cases. Get in touch with Xtext users and the developers behind it. Discuss bugzilla and feature requests and get your individual problems solved. The second edition of XtextCON 2015 again took place in Kiel, located at the Baltic Sea in northern Germany.
XtextCON was a two-day event, preceded by an optional full workshop day, on May 18, for beginners and those who would like an update. We ran a special clinic track in parallel to the main conference, where attendees got help and advice on individual Xtext-related problems.
Runs in parallel to the main tracks on May 19 and 20.
The clinic is your chance to get any Xtext-related problem solved. No matter if you got stuck in the middle of a project, or you just want to get some feedback on your design decisions and ideas. At the clinic you'll get the chance to go into a deep dialog with one of the Xtext experts.
If you have registered and want to make an appointment, please send a request to email@example.com.
This workshop is for beginners and those whose Xtext skills could need a refresh. Attendees will be well prepared for the rest of the conference.
During the day we will first focus on achieving a quick breakthrough from defining a language to generating code from its instances with Xtend. Then we will walk through all conceptual and code-related aspects of Xtext that every language designer should understand. Common scenarios will be covered with hands-on exercises. You will also learn how you can benefit from using the programming language Xtend when building languages with Xtext.
Lunch and tea / coffee on arrival and throughout the day are included in the workshop fees.
