Extending Eclipse for Globally Distributed Teams: Building Jazz with Jazz

Andre Weinand

Ecosystem Expertise Talks · Long
Wednesday, 14:00, 50 minutes | Bürgersaal 1


The Jazz technology platform and IBM Rational Team Concert are Eclipse based products developed by the team that was previously involved in the development of Eclipse. The development is spread over eight sites and multiple time zones and done using agile practices based on the "Eclipse Way" process which evolved from the development of the Eclipse platform. The goal of Jazz is to provide a platform that facilitates team collaboration and coordination throughout the software lifecycle. For almost two years IBM has been using Jazz and IBM Rational Team Concert to develop the product itself. This talk sheds light into how this is done and discusses best practices for using IBM Rational Team Concert in a globally distributed agile team.
