Have you been following the excitement over at the Rational Software Conference in India this week?
I have. Just a tiny bit jealous of @katmandelstein and co., especially after reading this entry from Pavan:
I wanna see!!!!
But Pavan has been doing a great job twittering the event for @rationalsupport,
If you want a recap, you can visit http://www.twitter.com/rationalsupport.
Additionally, Pavan reports:
The Day 1 of RSC 09 Bangalore got over quite some hours ago. Due to issues related to internet connectivity we couldn't give live tweets for the first day. Hence, I am currently at my home and updating the tweets.Sounds like great fun. Stay tuned for more tomorrow!
Rational Software Conference comes to five Indian cities this week: Bangalore, Chennai, Pune, Hyderabad, and New Delhi.
All the details can be found here:
Pavan Hoskeri, a Rational Support Engineer out of our Bangalore office, will be live-twittering the event for @rationalsupport.
The hashtag for RSC2009 remains the same for all our global events (#rsc2009), so you can follow the action.
If you aren't following us yet on Twitter, now would be a good time to fix that! :-)
Yes, I WAS there, and this is what I was doing. (photo courtesy of Charles Rivet)

Well, it's official.
I'll be making my 4th trip to the Rational Software Conference in Orlando, May 31 through June 4. Whoo hoo!
I'll be blogging and twittering and taking pictures, and being a general nuisance.
We've got a Twitter ID: @rsc2009. We've got a Twitter hashtag for all your #RSC2009 tweets. We're on facebook.
We've got Danny Sabbah, Steve Mills, Scott Hebner, Grady Booch and ... the Mythbuster guys!
There will be 2009 limited edition Rational Support Moo cards, if I ever get off my butt and order them.
The indefatigable Patrick O'Connor will be manning the eSupport pedestal in the Solution Center and would LOVE to show you the new and whammy IBM Support Portal, scheduled for full deployment later this year.
Very exciting stuff ... more to come, I'm sure!
Who else is going? Tweetup, anyone?
In the Kellypuffs' archives:
Some highlights from tonight's Welcome Reception:
Food! Lots and lots of food. And drink.
Lie Detectors! (more System Z magic)
Live streaming Twitter!
And lots of fun!
Opening keynote at 8am tomorrow ... be there!
This is it! The final day of Rational Software Conference.
After a fun trip to Animal Kingdom last night, folks are attending the last sessions before the General Session wrap up at 11am, featuring Neeraj Chandra, Vice President, Worldwide Strategy, IBM Rational software leading a powerful panel to look at the future of smart products.
There will be a final live challenge for our "As Real As it Gets" reality show teams, and the conference prizes will be awarded.
Speaking of the reality show, it appears that there have been some ... irregularities... in the voting system. Attend the final wrap up to get the scoop.
Too much fun! :-)
The new moo cards are here! The new moo cards are here!
Pat O'Connor did a great job this year designing our Limited Edition, highly collectable, sure-to-be-worth-MILLIONS Rational Support moo cards for RSC 2009.
How do you get yours?
1) Wander down to the Solution Center and find the eSupport pedestal (look for the blimp). Pat O'Connor, aka @RationalWebGuy will be manning the pedestal and will have cards.
2) I will be at the conference, in the role of roving reporter. I'll be blogging, twittering, taking photos and getting into trouble. I will have cards. So how do you find me? Follow http://www.twitter.com/rationalsupport.
3) You may even occasionally find them lurking in random corners of the conference.
Only the Shadow knows....
