Eclipse is so much, much more than an IDE these days. For starters, there are many exciting technologies being developed by the Internet of Things, Science and LocationTech groups. We really need to showcase these to the wider world. This was the excuse to have an event in London bringing together these different technologies and communities for a night of tech and merriment.
The event Eclipse Converge: blending LocationTech, IoT & Science was very generously hosted by Geovation, the Innovation Hub from the Ordnance Survey. We were very grateful for all the team there for help with organising and ensuring this event went off without a hitch. They have a terrific space and laid out quite a spread of food and drink, which set the scene well for our six speakers.

Kichwa Coders is pleased to announce that we have become a member of the Steering Committee of the Eclipse Science Working Group. Kichwa has been an active member of the Science Working Group from the beginning and its involvement includes:
- Leading projects related to Python scripting in Eclipse EASE
- Organizing Eclipse community meetups in London (join us for our next one!)
- Jonah Graham is project co-lead for the January Project for common data structures.
- Tracy Miranda is on the Program Committee promoting the Science track for Eclipsecon France
Tracy Miranda will represent Kichwa Coders as the Steering Committee participant. The current Steering Committee is made up of members from IBM, Diamond Light Source, Oakridge National Labs and Itema. Kichwa Coders look forward to working closely with other Steering Committee members to shape the future direction of the group and encourage other organizations to participate in this vibrant ecosystem where advancing open-source software advances science.
