We're delighted to announce that we've just launched a brand new Developer Center for CICS. This will be the new home of blogs and other collateral, produced by the development and support teams, to help you make the most of your CICS installations.
The new site allows us to integrate more closely with dwAnswers, IBM's question and answer forum designed to help you get the information you need as quickly as possible. We now have a CICS Smart Space which provides an aggregation of all CICS content on dwAnswers, which can also be accessed via the "CICS Q&A" menu item on the new developer center. We'll use this to provide support that we used to do through the CICSdev and CICS explorer forums - simplifying the support channels so you can focus on getting the help you need, rather than figuring out where to find it.
We are in the process of migrating still relevant content from CICSdev to the new DevCenter, with the hope being that we will sunset CICSdev around the start of the new year. Once a blog has been migrated we'll add a link to the new post in the original CICSdev blog so you can quickly find the post on the new site. This gives you a bit of time to update any bookmarks you may have for posts. However, we do believe that the new site should be relatively straight forward to navigate with an improved search mechanism and categorisation capabilities.
Please do take a look and let us know what you think. The site is still in its infancy, we'll be adding new content and improvements as often as we can - so be sure to check back regularly. If you have any suggestions for improvements feel free to comment on this blog - or on the Welcome to CICS post on the new site.
See you there!
