Mylyn: from Stack Trace to Scrum

Thursday, 10:30, 40 minutes | Bürgersaal 1


Not long ago the notion of a tool that hides more of the system than it shows sounded crazy. To some it still does. But hundreds of thousands of Mylyn users have made next big evolution of the IDE clear. Stories and tasks are more central than source code, focus is more important than features, and integration with the agile workflow is the biggest productivity boost since code completion. This talk will demonstrate the concepts of the task-focused interface and look ahead at how we are redefining the ā€œIā€ of the IDE by personalizing the user experience around the agile process.

Dr. Mik Kersten is the CEO of Tasktop Technologies and the lead of the Eclipse Mylyn open source project. As a research scientist at Xerox PARC, Mik implemented the first aspect-oriented programming tool support. He then invented the task-focused interface and created Mylyn as part of his PhD at the University of British Columbia. Mik is a popular speaker at software conferences and has been voted a JavaOne Rock Star speaker in 2008 and 2009. Mik enjoys building tools that offload our brains and make it easier to get creative work done.
