Open Source and Open Collaboration

Eclipse Cloud Development Tools (ECD Tools) is a community of members, adopters, developers, and other contributors that collaborate to define, promote and implement Web and Cloud-based development tools and drive the evolution and broad adoption of these tools.

The ECD Tools working group is a vendor-neutral community made up of Eclipse Foundation members that wish to freely collaborate on new technology development in the Cloud Dev Tools space.

Membership in the working group brings many benefits, including joint marketing initiatives and direct access to a community of skilled and dedicated open source developers.

You will find below ways to get involved.

Some ideas to amplify our message.


All ECD Tools calls and events are managed through a single shared Google calendar.



Community Calls

We hold a call for our community regularly. The aim of this call is to discuss upcoming events, ongoing initiatives and give projects the opportunity to share updates with the community.

We use a publicly available document to manage the meeting’s agenda. You can add items to it anytime, we just ask you leave your name and a way to follow up about it before the event.

Project Calls

Several ECD Tools projects hold calls to keep in touch with their communities. Please consider attending if you leverage one of the projects below or are just curious about them.
