    WHAT:      The following presentations will be given at JAX 2011

               Keynote - Mik Kersten
                Task-focused Continuous Integration: Bringing Code to
                Cloud and Back Again
               (May 3, 2011 - 8:15 p.m. - 9 p.m.)

                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 Application
                Lifecycle Management (ALM) tools are now transforming
                how we evolve and manage those applications.

                Kersten will explore connecting enterprise Java stack
                with cloud deployment via a task-focused continuous
                integration loop. The SCM, code review, and Agile ALM
                technologies, based on the Eclipse Mylyn ALM
                interoperability platform, will be used to demonstrate
                how to achieve this new level of connectivity and
                automation between the team and the application. The
                talk will conclude with a roadmap of how we can apply
                these new lessons to define the next decade of
                enterprise Java productivity.

               Q & A: State of Continuous Integration - Mik Kersten
               (May 4, 2011 - 5:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.)

                The latest changes in the Hudson/Jenkins case cause
                quite a stir. But how important are these changes for
                Continuous Integration? What is the technical roadmap?
                Kohsuke Kawaguchi, Steffen Schluff, Mik Kersten and
                Bjorn Feustel will give some advice and answer your

                Git, Gerrit, Hudson and one Mylyn to Rule Them All -
                Steffen Pingel and Benjamin Muskalla
               (May 5, 2011 - 11:45 a.m. - 12:45 p.m.)

                Git, Gerrit and Hudson are being increasingly adopted.
                While these tools enable exciting improvements for
                developers, learning how to push, pull and fetch can be
                daunting. For tasks, Mylyn already streamlines workflow
                by providing first-class integration with the IDE. The
                recent project restructuring now enables the same
                integrated workflows for code reviews, builds and
                version control systems.

                Mylyn 3.6: Agile, ALM and Task-Focused Continuous
                Integration - Mik Kersten
               (May 5, 2011 - 2 p.m. - 3 p.m.)

                A decade ago, heavyweight ALM tools did more to impede
                developers than to support collaboration. With the move
                to Agile methodologies, the time has come to embrace
                lightweight collaboration and social coding tools to
                increase our velocity. For many Java developers, Mylyn
                has become the tool of choice for connecting team
                communication with coding. In 2010, Mylyn became a top-
                level Eclipse project and grew to support the entire
                Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) stack. This talk
                will outline how Mylyn can double Java coding output by
                bringing the entire workday into the place where
                developers are most productive - the IDE. Demos will
                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. We will
                then review productivity best practices learned from
                deploying Mylyn at scale both in open source projects
                and large organizations. The talk will conclude with a
                vision of how realigning collaboration around a unified
                notion of tasks can yield a measurable productivity and
                knowledge capture benefit across the entire
