Stopwatch demo showing model-driven development with IBM Rational Rhapsody in Ada- Ada is a rich high-level language designed for embedded real-time, high integrity and large scale systems development. Progressively, in the Ada 95 and Ada 2005 revisions, it has incorporated more and more Object Oriented (OO) features further increasing its power and richness. During a similar timeframe there has been continued expansion in the use of the industry-standard OMG Unified Modeling Language (UML) for documenting OO designs in C++ and Java. There is arguably no better time for combining the two to help resolve longetivity challenges associated with maintaining Ada software designs. In this video we focus on the core principles and benefits of Model-Driven Development using IBM Rational Rhapsody; including automatically keeping the design and code synchronized at all times and showing its integration with compilers, including AdaCore's GNAT Pro compiler chain. The video uses a Stopwatch example model to highlight the added benefits of higher-level abstractions in UML2 to enable developers to focus on the essential parts of the design and make use of graphical programming techniques to speed up development and capture traceability to requirements. We also showcase Rhapsody in Ada features such as the newer Advanced roundtrip and model-level debugging.

As a brief respite from the deeply technical content we typically share, here is a Think Friday presention from last year on the topic of Blogging 101 for Subject Matter Experts (This post originally ran on waywardcelt.com October 1st, 2013):
You’ve heard the call to "get engaged". I’ve even blogged about the need to become more digitally social in order to build your career. Well, here’s another step to take to further build your own digital eminence: Start blogging as a way to share your expertise and knowledge. To help you do that, here’s a presentation I posted to slideshare.net with a HUGE thanks to both Duffy Fron and Kelly Smith for the collaboration on this deck:

We are also pleased to feature Contributing Author Bhargav Perepa
Bhargav Perepa lives in Leesburg, Virginia, with his IBMer wife, Suj Perepa, and their daughter. As an IBM engineer in a trusted advisor specialist capacity, Bhargav consults with US Federal Government to help position IBM products and solutions for complex and often challenging requirements. Bhargav's sole focus in his current job role is to remove technical inhibitors to adoption of IBM products by the US government. He performs technical feasibility studies, conducts assessments to understand customer business and technical environments, presents proof-of-concept and technologies results, and guides solution implementations and IBM enablement sessions. Bhargav has presented at conferences, teamed up in leadership exchanges, and written articles and IBM Redbooks. He has contributed to the IBM patent portfolio, and he participates in the IBM patent review board. Bhargav is also a university ambassador and a certification and patent mentor for IBM. He enjoys reading The Economist, The Washington Post, US Civil War history, training for and completing marathons, swimming, volunteering for food banks and being election chief, traveling, and hiking (Grand Canyon roundtrip in a day, for example).

We're always working to bring you deeper value to the products you use. From our support perspective, this doesn't just mean troubleshooting tips or solutions to errors. It also means larger implementation content and best practices! Helping you avoid issues by highlighting best practices before trouble is seen is just another of those ways we help make sure you are as successful with these products as you need to be! That's exactly why we bring you this periodic series of roll-ups from our developerWorks Rational community and libraries... that in mind, here's the past few weeks' articles that went live on developerWorks Rational:
What's new in Rational Lifecycle Integration Adapters
What's new in Rational Software Architect and Design Manager
Top 10 modeling hints: #4 Design patterns reuse proven solutions
IBM Rational Lifecycle Integration Adapters Standard Edition extends the IBM Rational solution for Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) with integrations to select third-party tools. These adapters also provide integrations for Rational ClearQuest. The Rational Lifecycle Integration Adapters Standard Edition enables you to continue using your existing lifecycle tools and benefit from the many capabilities found in the Rational solution for CLM products.
Monica Luke lives in the Boston, Massachusetts area. With more than 20 years experience in software engineering, she joined IBM Rational software 10 years ago in the test organization. During her 17 years as a test automation engineer and architect, she has repeatedly tackled the tough problems of building test automation solutions through frameworks that last and build triggered test solutions for complete lights-out testing. Testing and test automation remain a passion, and that has led Monica to move into the product management organization, where she has the opportunity to tackle these tough problems in the testing tools. Monica currently spends a lot of her time thinking about the challenges of Continuous Testing. Using an outside-in scenario design approach, Monica is happily influencing the next wave of Rational testing tools.
