EclipseCon 2012

EclipseCon is the premier technical and user conference focusing on the power of the Eclipse platform. From implementers to users, and everyone in between, if you are using, building, or considering Eclipse, EclipseCon is the conference you need to attend.

Stop by and visit the Jazz Team at Booth B3 at EclipseCon 2012. We'll have "Scrum"-diddlyumptious chocolate bars and maybe even a few other fun freebies! We'd love to hear about your environment and geek it up with you for a few minutes. And of course, we'd love to show off some of our products and show you how they can help you and your team be more productive.

Join us at EclipseCon!

Application Lifecycle Management: Imperatives to succeed, agility to scale

Speakers: Carolyn Pampino
Room: Lake Anne

"I have a bunch of tools, I don't need an ALM solution."

If your tools can't support cutting across these traditional boundaries you will not reach your full potential...

Scaling agility: Drinking our ALM Champagne

Time slot: 28 March 10:30 - 11:15
Speakers: Scott Rich

Not only was the team proving that the OSLC specifications would work, they were also proving they could integrate the data and tools across traditional software development boundaries. This solution included scaling beyond development to include rich requirements elaboration and independent test teams. And it is done in the open, with the team self-hosting on milestone builds through out the development process. It is also done in parallel with the development of the OSLC specifications...
