Editor's Note

Happy New Year!

We're planning ahead for this year and already announced the upcoming Eclipse Newsletter themes for every month in 2018 -- every month except March. If there's a topic you'd like to read about or or if you have feedback about the newsletter, tell us here!

This month, the newsletter gives you a little taste of what you can expect in 2018. Keep reading to learn more about Java EE's move to the Eclipse Foundation, IoT trends, DeepLearning4J (Go-Bot included), Language Server Plugins: aCute and Eclipse Corrosion, and Eclipse Che.

Into IoT? The Eclipse IoT working group, along with the IEEE IoT Initiative, the Open Mobile Alliance, and the AGILE-IoT, has launched the fourth annual IoT Developer Survey. Please take 5-8 minutes to complete the survey.

Finally, plan to join us in Toulouse this summer for EclipseCon France 2018. We are accepting talk proposals until March 19. Propose a talk.

Thank you for reading!
