and there you’ll find everything from forums, blogs, EGL reference manuals (with commenting), videos, partner information, articles and much more. Enjoy :)
I just came across this article on SystemiNetwork of a quick interview with Product Line Manager, George Farr. It’s short, but answers five questions:
- So George, we heard about some major internal changes at IBM between Rational and WebSphere — what’s all that about?
- Now that’s interesting . . . OK, then, what is all the fuss about the screen designer in WDSc?
- So, are you still saying that the screen designer will be left in Advanced Edition?
- For now then, what should customers use for designing 5250 screens and reports?
- We’ve got a few seconds left . . . anything else you’d like to add?
See the answers here.
Grab a camcorder or webcam and take a minute and half to tell us AND show us: What keeps YOU Rational? Is it the Rational product or solution that’s saving you money, time and sanity…or what is it that keeps you rational outside of work: spending time with family…doing yoga…hitting the links…And while you checking out the videos at http://www.rationaltube.com (including your own), you can rate them and help us choose which “What Keeps Me Rational” videos should be shown at the IBM Rational Software Conference 2007. The video context winner will receive a VIP conference package, as well as top billing during a keynote session, not to mention a video premier at the conference, itself. So get involved! Rational Tube is our community — our people. It’s What Keeps us Rational!
The winners of the seventh annual McMaster Software Engineering Design Project Competition were announced last week. One of the judges was our own Dave Muir. Dave was also a judge when I went through that course, unfortunately I wasn’t given any preferential treatment.
I just came across an article from ITJungle, about a IBM sponsored marketing campaign called IT Revenge on YouTube. The videos are funny and really get their point across in a creative, almost Office Space sorta-way. Here they are below:
IT Revenge v1.1: Kernel Ape Panic
IT Revenge v1.2: System Crash
IT Revenge v1.3: Fizzy Exception
IT Revenge v1.4: Hard Boot Pinata
Thanks for dropping by and welcome to the WebSphere Development Studio Client (WDSC) Development Team blog. Through this blog, we (mainly IBMers from Toronto) will post a wide variety of information including news, updates, technical articles and more. The goal of this blog is simple, to create an avenue for an open discussion between the people who build WDSC and its users. We encourage you to post your comments and help to facilitate a lively discussion on how to make our great product better.
