Sometimes, it pays to stick with what works. We've made a few changes in the 13 years since we launched developerWorks, but much of what helped us make a splash in 1999 continues to draw IT professionals like you week after week.
I'm talking about helpful resources that enable you to take advantage of open source technologies -- like our immensely popular article series on Spring Roo, the lightweight productivity tool for the Java platform that makes it easy to develop Spring-based applications. The two latest installments explore new features in Spring Roo 1.2 (including MongoDB support) and show you how to use Spring Roo to create Spring MongoDB apps.
And I'm talking about resources that show you how to take advantage of IBM solutions that can improve your company's bottom line -- like our trio of new articles that reveal how Rational Focal Point features can help you determine your project's return on investment, take snapshots of Investment Analysis data, and track project status.
We're not opposed to change. (Have you stopped by the developerWorks community lately?) But we know that it often pays to build on your successes. The woman who was my girlfriend in 1999 is now my wife. Our son? Also a change for the better.
Until next week,
John Swanson and the developerWorks editorial team
