One hundred years ago, this company was founded in New York City as the Computing-Tabulating-Recording Company. And it was cool.
That's right: IBM is cool . And I'm not just saying that because we're celebrating our Centennial this week (although that is pretty awesome). I'm saying it because... [More]
In the early 90's after IBM had developed OS/2 as well as the flexible REXX programming language, I joined IBM partner world for Developers and they provided great support to enable me to create lestec.com.au providing a visual front end (Modular And Integrated Design) for REXX and OS/2 and received the IBM trophy for OS/2 applications. After the demise of OS/2 converted the front end to windows. I then created additional email REXX based applications as well as REXX libraries. To this day (20 years later) IBM REXX is still supported and... [More]
If you're reading this, then you've probably aware of our IBM 100 Icons of Progress
page, the ongoing series that highlights the milestones of IBM's first century. You'll find plenty of fascinating stories here, and I
recommend reading them all -- but for those of you who may not have time to dig through them for topics with a strong software connection, here are a few specific icons that might catch your interest:
The Rise of the Internet
A Computer Called Watson
My personal story with IBM began 25 years ago - I had to change the chain of an IBM 1403 chain printer. A few years later I was part of AD/Cycle - IBM´s first framework for software development. Part of AD/Cycle was CSP - a 4GL created in 1981 intended to create online systems on IBM's mainframe platforms. EGL, IBM´s newest business language, is the grandchild of that language. We are still in the process of migrating old CSP based applications to EGL and generate them now into Java. That´s IBM - you can take a program written in the late... [More]
Hey, Here at ISL - IBM INdia Software Lab - several of us got together to celebrate IBM's Centennial year. We watched several IBM 100 videos on W3 and also clicked photos of IBM campus. One such innovative Photo posted below - And another one, indicating IBM's 100 years of Innovation ..
Compare the hardware and software patents of IBM with other companies and you will find the true value of the creative ideas of the people who work and have worked with this organization. Companies come and companies go. Many measure themselves by short term quarterly profits. The true value that IBM brings to customers is the innovation that allows us to do things that would have been impossible 10 years ago. For example, we are now able to support 104 terabytes of information in a data warehouse database and store this information in 54... [More]
As part of my celebration of IBM's Centennial, I spent a couple hours this morning getting trained by GLSEN on their "No Name Calling Week" project . The project was inspired by a book about a group of seventh graders, just trying to survive the school year in the face of the taunting and bullying that goes on in too many of our schools. GLSEN has partnered with IBM to create special lesson plans for IBMers to use, to visit their local public schools and talk about the importance of being respectful, and about creating and... [More]
Sharing photographs of the Celebration of Service that I had volunteered for about 2 weekends ago. As part of this service, IBMers collaborated with a local group to help plant several saplings and contribute towards a greener city and green environment. The tree platations happened at the hills of Baner, in Pune City, India.

Software conferences aren't what they used to be. Some of you may recall the days when you'd send your registration by mail, check letter boards for schedule changes, wait days (or weeks) to find out what happened in the sessions you couldn't attend, and wake up early to stoke the fire in your hotel room. (OK,... [More]

One of the cardinal rules they teach you in any basic writing class is Show, don't tell -- meaning, don't just state your point; illustrate it. ("Please don't lick the door, son" has more punch than "My child needs to work on his hygiene.")
Well, we do a lot of writing here on developerWorks, and we... [More]
