I work out of the IBM Toronto Software Lab. This year the lab celebrates 40 years of operation! An article where the first lab director is interviewed, was recently published in the itbusiness.ca newsletter.
Our current office is 6 years old, is state of the art with wireless available through out the building, and is home to 2500 people, all in the software creation business. The lab may be known for its work on the Linux, Unix, and Windows version of DB2, but there are also people working on Tivoli, WebSphere, Rational, and Lotus. This covers all 5 major brands of software that is produced by IBM Software Group! Beyond these 5 brands, there are also quite a few additional areas that are worked on, but I’m not qualified to even mention them!
I've worked for IBM for 18 years now... most of them in the lab. Very enjoyable! Time flies!
