  4. 4. How much time are you really developing during a working day?
  5. 5. • Most of the time we are: – Searching – Analyzing – Closing and opening documents – Scrolling – Summarizing – Reporting • Less of the time we are: – Developing – Doing our tasks
  6. 6. Concentrate on what is neccessary!
  7. 7. • Building tasks • See those things in the IDE which are related to a specific task (files, packages, libraries, methods and editors) • Be on schedule • Report what you have done and what others have to do
  8. 8. • Integrate into ticket systems (task repositories) e.g. JIRA, Mantis, Trac • Collaborate with your team • Use MyLyn for Office documents • Develope own integration with a plugin – http://wiki.eclipse.org/index.php/M ylyn_Extensions
  9. 9. • Should be integrated in recent Eclipse distributions • If not: – Eclipse -> Help -> Install new Software – http://download.eclipse.org/tools/m ylyn/update/e3.4
  10. 10. • Hide complexity • Report and forward bugs/features and appropriate context to experts • Almost anything can be packaged as a task • Collaborate (virtual teams) • Congregate knowledge due to repository
  11. 11. • Mighty • Quite impressed by its ease to use and effectiveness • People have to rethink – They have to learn to write tasks and build good context – Trainings may be needed • Processes are needed for reviewing finished tasks (Quality gateway for tasks ) • Could produce overhead – Simple/trivial things are provided as task – Maybe some kind of moderation is needed • Will start to use it now for private
