If you want to beat the competition, you've got to be innovative -- that much you already know. But in the current economic climate, you need more than just a couple of lucky breaks -- you've got to stay innovative. So you'll want to make time for this year's Rational Software Conference, IBM Innovate 2010. Returning to Orlando, Florida on 6 - 10 June, this event celebrates software innovation with hundreds of hands-on technical workshops and skill-building sessions (including new tracks on Agile, Cloud, POWER7, and more), as well as inspiring keynotes by innovators like Dean Kamen (the Segway guy). Register today and start building your agenda. With so many great options, it might take a while.
Can't wait to get started? (I like your enthusiasm!) Join us on 30 March - 1 April for our pre-conference IBM Innovate 2010 Jam. This hosted, online brainstorming session is your chance to tell us how you're using software in innovative ways. Scheduled topics include Jazz, Agile, Security, SOA, Cloud, and more. Your input will help shape the discussion at the Innovate 2010 conference in June. See? You're already shaking things up!
Until next week,
