Tasktop’s Benjamin Muskalla to Present on Mylyn Task Management Strategies at Jazoon 2011 Conference in Zurich

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ —
WHO: Benjamin Muskalla, Senior Software Developer Tasktop Technologies (www.tasktop.com) Muskalla will present two talks at the upcoming WHAT: Jazoon 2011 Conference (http://jazoon.com/) 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 branch.
