Simon Thompson and Huiqing Li explain refactoring with functional languages and Wrangler (Erlang) and HaRe (Haskell). Also: how Wrangler's ad-hoc mode allows everyone to write custom refactorings.
Mik Kersten discusses the role of Mylyn and Tasktop in Agile development and how these tools return control to developers. Also: how Mylyn streamlines development in Eclipse.
In this interview Jez Humble discusses the concept of continuous delivery, which implies that software should always be production ready throughout its lifecycle. That means that every build could be released into production and run effectively. Continuous delivery involves build and deployment automation, continuous integration, test automation, managing infrastructure and environments and more.
In this interview Mik Kersten and Neelan Choksi of Tasktop Technologies talk about the Mylyn task-oriented application lifecycle management framework and its role in creating Tasktop.
