April 29, 2010
VANCOUVER, April 29 /PRNewswire/ —
WHO: Mik Kersten CEO of Tasktop Technologies Creator of the open source Eclipse Mylyn project Tasktop Technologies www.tasktop.com Steffen Pingel Senior Software Developer Tasktop Technologies www.tasktop.com WHAT: The following presentations will be given at JAX 2010 From Tasks to Tweets: Social Collaboration for Software Developers 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 procrastination. 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.
