Big preparations going on both at developerWorks and here in Massachusetts. Many of our systems are going offline for a few days next week due to a large software upgrade. Because of this, our next set of new articles will publish on the 19th. Here in Massachusetts we're undergoing a bit of a shut-down as well as we batten down the hatches and prepare for the incoming blizzard. Current snow totals range from 24-30 inches falling between Friday morning and midday on Saturday. I will see you all on the other side.
Share your knowledge and help others who use Rational software by writing a developerWorks article. Find out what makes a good developerWorks article and how to proceed.
