- Rational community roll call: Through weekly publication schedules, we get to know a lot about our article authors. We are always fascinated by the work that they do, both in and out of their day jobs. So some of them have volunteered to share their stories with you. Through this Q&A series, we hope you've learned something more about what motivates their dynamic and diverse technical minds.
- Content updates: Each week, our production team curates all updates on our "New content on developerWorks Rational" blog posts. If you value receiving technical information about using Rational software in this way, then join the community and subscribe to this blog. We'll keep you posted.
- New communities: We enjoyed watching new communities form, focused on application lifecycle management, agile, and product and systems engineering. Through these emerging spaces came new thoughts and ideas, all voluntarily run by enthusiasts with a common goal of helping you be more successful with software and systems delivery.
