VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 2, 2011 /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 Benjamin Muskalla Software Developer Tasktop Technologies www.tasktop.com 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 questions. 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 organization.
