The demo camp was conducted at SAP Labs campus. We all got a warm welcome from the organizers. I feel the organizers have done a great job with an amazing democamp. The people behind the curtains are Ankur Sharma (Eclipse PDE Co-Lead, IBM), Ashwani Kr Sharma (Committer - EMF Query, SAP) and Saurav Sarker (Committer - EMF Query, SAP) and a handful more people from SAP Labs.
We all got a wonderful set of goodies which includes a cool hat.

The event started with a keynote from Mr. Harish Porval, VP, TIP Core UI and Modeling Tools, SAP Labs. SAP Labs have got big plans with Eclipse as their development platform.

Ayushman Jain from IBM presented Xtext with an example of how to create a custom language for Android. There were a few interesting queries from the audience. Its simply amazing to see that from a grammar file how Xtext generates all the other components you need for your custom language (DSL) like parser, editor, navigator, validator, automatic code completion etc..
