Home for 5pm

A session at Scotch on the Rocks 2011

Friday 4th March, 2011

11:30am to 12:30pm (GMT)

As developers we're prone to working late. Sometimes this is due to client deadlines but a lot of the time it's because we hamper our own productivity by working in a chaotic and unfocused fashion.

Be honest. How many times have you got frustrated because you've been working on one task, got sidetracked to deal with another issue and come back to the original task wondering just what the hell you were actually doing? Or maybe your IDE of choice has got 10, 20, 30+ files open and you're scared to close any of them because you're sure they're important for *some* reason. Maybe you're even working on random tasks with no sense of priority.

We've all done it. But we don't need to. Hello Mylyn and it's big brother Tasktop.

In this session we'll see how to:

  • Access our ticket tracker (Trac, Jira, Bugzilla, etc)
  • Reduce noise by focusing on a single task at a time, showing only the relevant files for that task
  • Schedule our tasks
  • Track how much time we spend on tasks
  • Synchronise our tasks with our calendar
  • and much much more
