Tasktop's Mik Kersten to Keynote at Eclipsecon 2012 on the Impact of Open Source Practices on Enterprise and Agile ALM

Beyond the impact of open source tools is the emergence of new collaboration and workflow practices that are shaping how software is built

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --


Mik Kersten – CEO and founder of Tasktop Technologies (



Kersten is the creator of the Eclipse Mylyn open source project and inventor of the task-focused interface. At Tasktop he provides the technical vision behind Tasktop Dev for desktop-based developer productivity and Tasktop Sync for enterprise ALM synchronization.




The Future of ALM: Developing in the Social Code Graph





Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) is transforming before us. A new breed of tool-supported open source practices is reshaping the ALM landscape and making software delivery the most transparent and connected knowledge work process. During this keynote, Kersten will explore this transformation, show how it will impact software development in the next decade and illustrate how today's developers are helping to shape the digital workplace of tomorrow.





Just as the world changed when social networking tools made it trivial for us to externalize our relationships and activity streams, a new collection of open source ALM tools has made it easy for developers to go far beyond dumping code into SCM. Developers are now externalizing their collaboration practices and workflows into a loosely coupled social code graph connected by tasks and relationships.
