Description

Will the nuclear arms race of of vim vs emacs ever end? Perhaps the only solution is not to play.

In this talk I will show you how Eclipse, widely seen as a developer tool, can be used by system administrators to do their job faster and with fewer mistakes, while gaining a deeper understanding of the systems they’re responsible for. I’ll show you which Eclipse plugins are great for sysadmins, and which features they’re likely to overlook, or even mistakenly discount entirely.
