|My experience with Mylyn began shortly after it was released in 2006 as a way to access bug reports from my IDE. It didn’t take long for me to discover how radically my effectiveness and productivity were affected by Mylyn’s ability to track the context of each task and trigger my situational memory. Mylyn’s effect on my work was so profound that over the following years I was inspired to create several extensions for Mylyn, including automatic creation of task contexts for model-driven development (MDD) tools, context-driven domain diagrams, and WikiText. It was through these projects and others that I came to know a world-class team, the creators of Mylyn at Tasktop.|
|Mylyn’s frameworks and Tasktop’s products have become the hub of a new movement in software development, focused on integrating Agile methodologies and ALM tools to provide the groundbreaking productivity gains of the task-focused interface. It’s with great excitement that I join the team at Tasktop as Vice President of Engineering. I look forward to working with one of the most innovative software development companies that exists at the center of the Agile and ALM space and leading edge of the Eclipse community.|
