Writing a Hudson / Jenkins plugin

Hudson and Jenkins have already plenty of plugins to extend their capabilities (notifiers, tags, post build actions, etc...)

But those tools are so versatile, you'll always want to leverage them to address a particular problem in your company environment: knowing how to extend them will come handy sooner than later !

In this talk, the attendee will learn what to expect when creating a Hudson / Jenkins plugin :

Built to Scale: The Mozilla Release Engineering toolbox

Mozilla builds and tests software at tremendous scale, for projects such as Firefox for Desktop and Android, and Firefox OS. A single code "check in" consumes over 200 compute hours to complete builds as well as correctness and performance tests on multiple platforms. We recently ran a record 73,000 test jobs in a single day. This talk will discuss the open source tools we use to optimize and automate the management of the hardware and software required to handle this scale of release engineering activity on our hybrid in-house/AWS infrastructure.

Unshackling Mylyn from the desktop

The Eclipse Mylyn project has been a key driver of task-focused collaboration inside of the Eclipse IDE. For many years, developers have been relying on Mylyn as a desktop client to connect with task repositories, collaborate with other developers, and manage application lifecycles. With web IDEs moving into maturity, how will Mylyn adapt to the new development model?

Best of both worlds: performing a complete Gerrit review without leaving your Eclipse environment with Eclipse Gerrit Review plugin.

You like Gerrit for code reviews! You like the Eclipse IDE! You wonder, why they are not accessible together? Good news, with the new Eclipse Gerrit Review plugin, it is now possible to perform Gerrit reviews while staying in Eclipse. Up until now, software developers have been coding in Eclipse and have had to switch out to a Web navigator to perform a Gerrit review. This talk aims to demonstrate another way of performing a Gerrit review.

News from EGit

EGit 3.0 shipped with Kepler and is shipping new releases every 3 months. Curious what's in ?

Did you know that EGit supports interactive rebase with a graphical UI and that you can interactively stage/unstage individual hunks ? When using git blame annotations in order to understand which commit has last touched a certain line in a source code file you can now quickly iterate through the history of this line.
