Why did the Eclipse Foundation create the Cloud DevTools Working Group?
Cloud native applications are of critical importance for today’s enterprises. According to a recent Eclipse Foundation survey, more than 80% of developers have plans to create cloud native applications within the next 12-18 months. It is this demand that drove the formation of the Eclipse Cloud DevTools Working Group, a vendor-neutral open source collaboration that focuses on development tools for and in the cloud. This working group fosters the evolution and broad adoption of emerging standards for cloud-based developer tools, including language support, extensions, marketplaces, and developer workspace definition.
What are some of the key projects within the Eclipse Cloud DevTools Working Group?
The Eclipse Cloud Development Tools Working Group encompasses a broad portfolio of open source cloud development projects including Eclipse Theia, Eclipse Che, Eclipse Open VSX, Eclipse CodeWind, Eclipse Dirigible, Eclipse Sprotty, and many more.
Who are some of the key members of the Eclipse Cloud DevTools Working Group?
We have had tremendous interest in this initiative from a broad range of organizations. Founding members include Broadcom, EclipseSource, Ericsson, IBM, Intel, Red Hat, SAP, and Typefox among many others. Every one of our Founders are respected leaders in their space, and we have a mix of large corporations and smaller companies actively engaged. All of these organizations have a strategic interest in cloud developer tools and want to shape the future of a vibrant and sustainable ecosystem of users, contributors and service providers.

"In our customer projects around the globe, we can observe an increasing demand for web-based and cloud-based tooling….We believe the Eclipse ecosystem is on a very strong path to take and hold the same dominating position for tool building it has on the desktop also for web-based tools in the upcoming decade."
Dr. Jonas Helming, General Manager at EclipseSource
