VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ —

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

    WHAT:         Keynote: Wed., March 16, 1:05 p.m.
                  Bringing Code to the Cloud and Back Again

                   Mik Kersten, CEO of Tasktop Technologies and creator of the
                   Eclipse Mylyn open source project
                  Rod Johnson, creator of the Spring framework

                   The deployment destination for enterprise applications is
                   going through its biggest transition since the creation of
                   Java. Cloud infrastructure is changing the game for both
                   application deployment and lifecycle management. Over the
                   past decade, open source technologies, such as Spring and
                   Tomcat, have defined how we build and run enterprise Java
                   applications. Recent developments in open source
                   collaboration and Application Lifecycle Management (ALM)
                   tools are now transforming how we evolve and manage those

                   During this keynote, Kersten and Johnson will explore a
                   turnkey approach that marries enterprise Java with cloud
                   deployment and Agile/ALM. They will provide an overview of
                   new technologies at the intersection of these three areas
                   and demonstrate how they radically simplify the Java
                   developers' workday by creating a new level of connectivity
                   between the team and the application. The talk will
                   conclude with a roadmap of how developers can apply these
                   new lessons to define the next decade of enterprise Java

                  Presentation: Thurs., March 17, 10 a.m.
                  Mylyn 3.4 and the New Face of the Java IDE

                   Mylyn has become the tool of choice for connecting team
                   collaboration with coding. In 2010, Mylyn grew to support
                   the entire Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) stack.
                   This talk will provide an overview of how Mylyn can double
                   Java development output by bringing the entire workday into
                   the place where developers are most productive - the IDE.
                   Demos showcase how Mylyn's task-focused interface
                   integrates all leading task and Agile tools, SCM tools such
                   as SVN and Git, and build/CI tools, including Hudson, then
                   show how Mylyn's frameworks can run outside of Eclipse on
                   the server side. The talk concludes with a vision of how
                   realigning collaboration around a unified notion of tasks
                   yields a measurable productivity benefit across the
