VANCOUVER, April 29 /PRNewswire/ —

    WHO:      Mik Kersten
              CEO of Tasktop Technologies
              Creator of the open source Eclipse Mylyn project
              Tasktop Technologies

              Steffen Pingel
              Senior Software Developer
              Tasktop Technologies

    WHAT:     The following presentations will be given at JAX 2010

              From Tasks to Tweets: Social Collaboration for Software
              Mik Kersten (May 5, 2010 - 4:15 p.m. - 5:15 p.m.)
              Developers are increasingly relying on social technologies to
              ensure projects are completed. Many software developers are
              concerned that constant real-time communication will bring
              productivity to a halt. In this presentation, Kersten will
              share how new technologies and practices are forming in order
              to help organizations harness social collaboration as part of
              an Agile process and integrated tool set. This talk will
              demonstrate how developers can use the latest social tools
              alongside established Application Lifecycle Management (ALM)
              technologies to promote productivity instead of

              Mylyn 3.4: from Stack Trace to Scrum
              Mik Kersten (May 5, 2010 - 10:15 a.m. - 11:15 a.m.)
              The rapid adoption of Mylyn has made next big evolution of the
              IDE clear. Stories and tasks are more central than
              sourcecode, focus is more important than features, and
              integration with the Agile workflow is the biggest
              productivity boost since code completion. During this
              presentation, Kersten will review how new features in the
              latest Mylyn release and new integrations can increase the
              productivity of the entire Agile software development team.

              Bringing easy Extension Install to your RCP Applications
              Steffen Pingel (May 4, 2010 - 4:45 p.m. - 5:15 p.m.)
              Eclipse P2 is a powerful tool for managing plug-ins but lacks
              a UI that matches the ease of use of the Firefox extension
              installer which has helped to perpetuate the browsers
              success. In this talk, Pingel will share his experience with
              how to bring the Firefox install experience to RCP
              applications and Eclipse-based tools to the Mylyn project
              which has developed a reusable component on top of P2 that
              provides a simplified installer.
