I am leading a workshop on Monday 27 June 2011, at TOOLS 49 in Zurich on the idea of developing a worldwide New Eiffel Technology Community. The idea is that languages that survive like Java and Ruby today don't depend on the qualities of the language, but on the qualities of the 'technology stack', i.e. the overall ability to build large-scale systems from large reusable components, and easily deploy them. See for details. Please consider joining the mailing list and publicising the event to others.
