Concurrent and Collaborative Jazz Demo at OOPSLA and CASCON
Collaborating with Jazz - at OOPSLA 2007, Montreal and CASCON 2007, Toronto

Erich Gamma, John Wiegand and Team, IBM Rational
Tuesday, October 23rd 5:15 - 6:30 pm

OOPSLA 2007, Room 516 A/B, Palais des congrès de Montréal, Canada
CASCON 2007, York C, Sheraton Parkway Toronto North, Richmond Hill, Canada

The Eclipse Platform was developed using agile practices, but the team never had the luxury of developing in a single location or even a single time zone. The team adapted and evolved its own practices and those adopted from the agile community in order to support their work to ship quality software on time. The team has naturally been exploring how tools can help with these practices. These explorations are now called the Jazz Project. You'll have the opportunity to see Jazz in action as the team presents the current state of Jazz technology and a joint demonstration concurrently and collaboratively from OOPSLA 2007 in Montreal and CASCON 2007 in Toronto. Join us afterwards for light refreshments and interaction with the team.

OOPSLA 2007 BoF: Collaborative Development Research using Jazz

Harold Ossher, IBM Research
Wednesday October 24th, 12:00-1:30 pm
Room 510C, Palais des congrès de Montréal, Canada

Jazz is a joint project between IBM Rational and IBM Research to build a scalable, extensible team collaboration platform for seamlessly integrating tasks across the software lifecycle. As such, it is a suitable platform for reseach both on tools and environments for team development and on team interactions and development artifacts (e.g., repository mining). This Birds of a Feather session is intended to bring together members of the Jazz Team, researchers who are already doing Jazz-related research, as well as researchers who may be interested in doing so. There will be short demontrations/presentations on three Jazz-related projects done at the University of British Columbia, the University of Califronia, Irvine and the University of Victoria, followed by general discussion and Q&A.

CASCON 2007 BoF: Towards Collaborative Development Research & Teaching Using Jazz

Marcellus Mindel, IBM Rational
Thursday October 25th, 10:15-11:30 am
Sheraton Parkway Toronto North, Richmond Hill, Canada

Jazz is a joint project between IBM Rational and IBM Research to build a scalable, extensible team collaboration platform for seamlessly integrating tasks across the software lifecycle. It presents opportunities for those teaching collaborative software development, as well as for those conducting reseach in team interaction, repository mining, and tools and environments for team development. This Birds of a Feather session is intended to bring together members of the Jazz Team, researchers and instructors already using Jazz in an academic setting, as well as those who may be interested in doing so.
