Mylyn has changed the way developers work. This talk provides both an overview of the technology and a series of demos that will help newcomers get started. For seasoned users, the demos provide some quick overviews of new features and best practices.
The theme of the talk is the idea that focus and flow are key to creative work, and that tool support can facilitate focus and help us maintain flow, dramatically increasing our productivity. The talk overviews some of the motivations and foundations behind Mylyn's task-focused interface, including the split between our brains' semantic and episodic memory systems. After that, things get more concrete with several demos of Mylyn 3.0, followed by a showcase of the tools that make up the Mylyn ecosystem, including open source connectors as well as commercial tools such as the SpringSource Tool Suite and Tasktop.
