On Mylyn we typically perform UI reviews on conference calls and bug reports. This one will be a little different. As the Mylyn committers present the key parts of the UI, everyone attending will have a chance to complain and throw tomatoes at the screen. We will then brainstorm designs that address the most interesting usability problems that we face for Mylyn 3.0. If the design discussions do not converge we will give up, go for beer, lament about how hard UI design is, and search the hallways for Platform people to blame things on.

Mik Kersten is the President and CTO of Tasktop Technologies, lead of the Eclipse Mylyn project, committer on the AspectJ project, and member of the Eclipse Architecture Council. While a research scientist at Xerox PARC, Mik implemented the first aspect-oriented programming tool support with AspectJ plug-ins for JBuilder, NetBeans, Visual Studio, and Emacs. He then created Mylyn and the Task-Focused Interface technology while completing his PhD at the University of British Columbia. Mik's passion is building Eclipse-based tools that offload our brains and make it easier to get creative work done.

Robert Elves is Product Manager at Tasktop Technologies and a committer on the Eclipse Mylyn project. Robert holds a MSc in Computer Science from the University of Victoria where his research domain was locomotion in information spaces, with a focus on helping developers navigate source code.

Steffen Pingel is a software developer at Tasktop Technologies. He enjoys working on Mylyn based tools that keep developers focused and productive. He has been a committer on the project since 2006 when Google's Summer of Code got him addicted to Mylyn.
