Join Our Conference

September can't get here fast enough!

Annual Conference 2019

The Eclipse Users Group Annual Conference isn't just the oldest and longest-running Eclipse training event, it's also the most informative, enjoyable, and affordable. The first conference was held in 1991, and over two-and-a-half decades we have earned a reputation for providing more seminars, more choices, more knowledge, more CEUs, and more fun for the money, something we are quite proud of. Not only is there ALWAYS a lot to do in Las Vegas, but accommodations are a bargain. Deluxe hotel rooms at Bally's are only $125 per night, and at Paris, they're only $150 per night. Plus you can earn up to 2.2 NCRA CEUs/PDCs, or 15 NVRA CEs. There is no other place that offers EVERYONE a chance to unwind however they want after a long day of training. Shows, spas, sports, sun, sightseeing – the possibilities are nearly endless!

Fresh New Topics

We don't just repeat content year after year. Each year we refresh the agenda with new content to keep you current!

8 Keynote Speakers

We choose the best of the best in our profession, and we never settle for anything less for you!

Everyone Welcome

We tailor our events so that no matter your unique skill-set, you'll take away MANY new teachings home!

Jeremy Thorne

Advanced Eclipse Training - Part 1

Nearly thirty years ago, Jeremy Thorne began writing the first version of Eclipse CAT software. That was in the days of DOS, when computers were huge and smart phones didn't exist. Today we are up to Version 9, which he will cover in great depth during the Advanced Track on Friday. Join us and take a deep dive into the most advanced methods of using Eclipse. Learn how to tune the translation, editing and production features to a level of detail you never thought possible using customzation tools such as regular expressions and the metadictionary. Get a look inside the process we go through in development and tech support when customers contact us about special needs and find out how often an answer can be provided that leverages technologies that are already accessible rather than requiring a special update of the software. Finally, the advanced group always gets a preview of, and direct input into, work on the next version of Eclipse.
