Welcome to the IBM Rational community!
We created this community to help you learn about best practices and uses of our products; to let you visually experience Rational software in action; and share knowledge with others. Learn. Experience. Share. Pretty simple, right?
A colleague recently asked me what my general expectation is for communities. My hunch is this: When we don't know something, we throw our question to the Internet and see what comes back. But when we want specific knowledge, we seek out specific bodies to pose our questions to. Hence, communities.
It's no secret that for communities to be successful, you have to give a little to get what you want out of it. The more you give, the more you get.
For our Rational community, we're attempting the inverse of that. We want to make sure that you get something new each time you visit. That is why we gather information about Rational products and display it in real time on our community home page. You'll get the latest news from sources such as developerWorks, jazz.net, IBM communities and support. And we still have sources to add!
How can you give? Easy. If you see information that you like on the home page, follow the link to add comments or join in the discussion; or pass the information along to colleagues. Do you have a blog on developerWorks? Tag appropriate posts with "rational" to promote them to our home page. Share new thoughts through our message board or wiki.
We are excited to share as much as we can about Rational software through this community. If you have feedback for us, post it to our community message board.
Looking forward to hearing from you,
