Open source Eclipse

IBM -- The Dublin Software Laboratory (DSL) at IBM's Santry campus has opened its Eclipse proramme to all third level institutions in Ireland. The programme features an annual competition where winners take away laptops. Launched in 2001 by a number of well-known software vendors, including IBM, Borland, Rational Software and SuSE, Eclipse is an Open Source community.

Throughout the academic year, software architects from IBM's DSL worked with university students in a mentoring capacity offering support and advice on projects. The mentors were also involved in the final evaluation of the projects in conjunction with project supervisors for the universities.
