                  Eclipse Mylyn: Redefining the "I" of the IDE
                  Tuesday, June 21

                   In less than four years, the Mylyn task-focused
                   interface has evolved from its inception on a
                   university whiteboard to support of developers
                   using IBM Rational Team Concert (RTC), ClearQuest,
                   ClearCase, Microsoft Team Foundation Server and HP
                   Quality Center. Not long ago, the notion of a tool
                   that hides more of the program than it shows
                   sounded crazy. To some, it probably still does.
                   However, as Mylyn continues its rapid adoption
                   developers are making the next big step in the
                   evolution of the IDE clear - tasks are more
                   important than files, focus is more important than
                   features and task-focused collaboration yields
                   the biggest productivity boost since code
                   completion. This talk will provide an overview of
                   how teams can get the most out of using Mylyn
                   within the current ALM tool stack for enterprise
                   Java, C/C++, .NET, System z and PHP development.

                   Tired of SVN? Pimp your productivity with Git,
                   Gerrit, Hudson and Mylyn
                  Wednesday, June 22

                   Each year the organizers of Jazoon recognize
                   bright, young (aged 26 or younger) Java, .NET and
                   Open Source developers through its Jazoon Rookie
                   award. Muskalla received this award at last year's
                   conference and will "defend" his status with the
                   following presentation:

                   The Git versioning system is being increasingly
                   adopted by the developer community. Using Git for
                   version control makes Gerrit the natural choice
                   for code reviews. Source code, requirements and
                   build artifacts also play an important role in the
                   development cycle and for many projects Hudson and
                   Bugzilla are the first choices. While these tools
                   enable exciting development process improvements,
                   adapting to new workflows and learning how to
                   push, pull and fetch can be daunting. For tasks,
                   Mylyn already streamlines workflow by providing
                   first-class task integration from within the IDE.
                   The recent Mylyn project restructuring will now
                   enable the same integrated workflows for code
                   reviews, builds and version control systems like
                   Git. In this talk, Muskalla will demonstrate how
                   the tools available in the Mylyn project work
                   together to seamlessly integrate development
                   artifacts in Eclipse - all the way from tracking
                   requirement to the final merge into the production
