Issued March 25, 2014

A computer-based system to integrate code changes for a software application is provided. The system detects when a requested code change for a branch of the software application conflicts with another code change, and generates a blocked change notification corresponding to the detected conflict. The blocked change notification includes a blocked change identifier corresponding to the requested code change. The notification is delivered to a user device, which responds with a conflict resolution response that includes at least one code change file associated with the requested code change, along with an integration annotation that conveys the blocked change identifier and a branch name identifier that identifies the branch of the software application. The system acts upon the integration annotation to integrate the at least one code change file into the branch of the software application.

Disclosed herein are systems and computer readable storages for identifying experts with particular talents among participants in an online social network. Identification of experts with particular talents identified by talent-labels can take into account multiple factors. One factor that can be applied is self-nomination. Individuals who offer to help others can be expected to offer assistance in areas where they have strong talents. Another factor that can be applied is endorsements by others. A co-worker making an endorsement can be encouraged or required to supply narrative that describes experience with the nominee's actual work. Another factor that can be applied is data mining by semantic analysis or other techniques, taking advantage of access to fielded databases that describe a nominee's work activities. One or more proficiency scores can be derived from these and other factors and used when responding to queries or generally when compiling expertise inventories or talent banks
