Thousands of Rational enthusiasts will gather next week in Orlando, Florida for Innovate, the Rational software conference. Innovate is a great opportunity to learn about Rational technologies, including EGL and Rational Business Developer. The theme for this year's conference is Next, Now and conference attendees can learn how companies have been using EGL to solve problems Now and what they plan to do Next.
EGL folks won't want to miss these sessions:
Application Development Got an Organization Down? Address Complexity with Enterprise Generation Language, an Open, Extensible Programming Language (DR-2279) Sunday, June 3 1:30pm
Feeling Trapped? Application Modernization Strategies that Can Move Organizations from Green Screen to Mobile and Beyond
Simplify Multiplatform Application Development with Enterprise Generation Language (SZ-2286) Monday, June 4 1:45pm

In addition to these great sessions, you can get some hands-on with EGL at the EM sandbox on the exhibit floor. There's several exercises available for EGL, along with plenty more for other EM products, all without having to install a thing.
You can also come talk to me about EGL in the UX Zone! I'll be gathering feedback on what developers like (and don't like) about Rational IDEs such as Rational Business Developer and our open-source product EGL Development Tools, discussing how users get started using Rational software, and getting input into the Rational persona library so our software can better meet your needs.

Hope to see you in Orlando!
