You'll get some pizza :-).

Seriously though, I'll be covering a range of stuff:

* Installation and configuration
* Basic coding in eclipse
* Code refactoring
* Runtime profiles
* Debugging (local and remote), Inspecting, hot deploying of new code
* Source control - CVS, local history, diff
* Source code navigation
* Automagic source code formatting
* Useful keyboard shortcuts
* Custom easy-to-create templates
* Simple example of developing an SWT app
* Installing plugins
* Installing support or special versions of eclipse for - ruby, perl,
python, C#, C/C++. and others?
* Anything else people are curious about

We'll write a few simple apps to demonstrate the features of eclipse
as we go.  I hope this sheds some light on what we'll be doing.  Only
you can decide if this presentation will be a worthly of your evening.
