Task-focused programming with Eclipse Mylyn presented by Wayne Beaton from the Eclipse Foundation

This presentation will start with an overview of Mylyn’s task management
features including offline editing, background synchronizations and
change notifications, and demonstrate how these work for repositories
such as Bugzilla, JIRA, and Trac. Once your tasks are in Eclipse, Mylyn
provides support for automatically managing your task context as you
work, an approach that has been shown to make programmers much more
productive. A demonstration shows Mylyn task-focused development in the
context of Eclipse RCP/RAP/eRCP (desktop/server/embedded) development.

Mylyn’s task context sharing and change set management are used to show
how Mylyn can make the entire development team more productive by
realigning interaction around tasks.

Wayne Beaton is employed by The Eclipse Foundation where he works as an evangelist, helping organizations adopt Eclipse technologies. Wayne has more than eighteen years of professional software development experience, and is a frequent speaker at conferences around the world.
We will raffle off a personal license for IntelliJ IDEA sponsored by JetBrains. JetBrains
