The Mylyn Reloaded

Mik Kersten (Tasktop ), Chris Aniszczyk, Wayne Beaton (Eclipse Foundation )

Making Community · Standard
Tuesday, 14:00, 20 minutes | Ballroom BC


The Mylyn project was recently restructured, redefined and reloaded into the Eclipse ecosystem as the top-level home for all things application lifecycle. While the Tools, Web Tools and Modeling projects handle our application development tool needs, Mylyn has expanded to encompass ALM and developer collaboration. This change presents opportunities for both Eclipse users and for those building on Eclipse. For users, we have a series of new integrations and features coming that integrate and layer Eclipse-based goodness on top of open source ALM tools such as Bugzilla, Hudson and Git. On the framework side, we\'re growing new APIs and creating opportunities for those wanting to integrate with the large variety of Agile, change management, continuous integration and source code management systems. In this talk, members of the Mylyn PMC will discuss these issues and opportunities in a format so innovative that we cannot yet share what it is.

Dr. Mik Kersten is the CEO of Tasktop Technologies, creator and leader of the Eclipse Mylyn open source project and inventor of the task-focused interface. As a research scientist at Xerox PARC, Mik implemented the first aspect-oriented programming tools for AspectJ. He created Mylyn and the task-focused interface during his PhD in Computer Science at the University of British Columbia. Mik has been an Eclipse committer since 2002, is an elected member of the Eclipse Board of Directors and serves on the Eclipse Architecture and Planning councils. Mik's thought leadership on task-focused collaboration makes him a popular speaker at software conferences, and he was 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. Follow @mik_kersten on Twitter.

Chris Aniszczyk tends to be all over the place inside the Eclipse community by committing on various projects and helping new projects off the ground. He's a Principal Software Engineer and Evangelist at Red Hat. He is the co-author of The Eclipse Rich Client Platform book and has been recognized by the Eclipse Community Awards as Top Ambassador and Top Committer. He sits on the Eclipse Architecture Council, Eclipse Planning Council and has the honor to represent the committers on the Eclipse Foundation's Board of Directors. Chris's passions are modularity, evangelism, open source and anything Eclipse.

Wayne works for the Eclipse Foundation where he fills the dual roles of Director of Committer Community and Evangelist. He spends his days working with the many Eclipse projects, learning about Eclipse technology, and making sure that everybody knows just how cool it all really is. Wayne is also the editor-in-chief of Eclipse Corner, PMC Lead for the Technology Project, and Project Lead for the Eclipse Examples and Woolsey Projects. In 1982, he received the prestigious Chief Scouts Award from then-Governor General Edward Schreyer. In 1984 his team was selected to represent beautiful British Columbia in the Kinsmen Voyageur Relay. In his spare time, he writes down meaningless accomplishments from his youth in a lame attempt to impress the reader.
