BIRT Exchange will once again be sponsoring the EclipseCon 2012 Developer Conference. This year the conference will be held in Reston, VA (Washington DC area) from March 26th-29th.

There are 3 BIRT Sessions in this years EclipseCon conference program:

What is BIRT? Quick Jumpstart (presented by Virgil Dodson)
This session introduces BIRT and looks at how you can leverage BIRT to quickly create data-driven reports, web pages, and compelling information visualizations using its visual drag-and-drop design environment. This session provides a great orientation to the BIRT project and technology and how it might benefit your applications.

Extending BIRT with Plug-ins (presented by Michael Williams)
This session will show off several new plug-ins created by the community from a recent BIRT plug-in contest and also show step-by-step use of the ODA wizard to create a new BIRT data source and show where to find current plug-ins in the source code to use as a starting point for creating your own BIRT plug-ins faster. Attendees will leave this talk with an understanding of BIRT plug-ins and the various ways to extend BIRT.
