The best part...

Sunday at RSDC, my colleagues Michelle Ulrich and Lindsey Lurie and I introduced a group of about 50 folks to developerWorks. Actually, some already had used dW before, but the breadth and depth of dW is such that even folks who use it frequently are likely to learn of something new and useful to them. For me, though, the best part of the experience was hearing from developers and technical professionals about how they use dW, as well as hear their feedback and suggestions on how to better serve their wants and needs.
Today we heard several people encourage us to again offer posters outlining the stages of the Rational Unified Process (RUP). Turns out we DO still offer these highly sought-after RUP posters, and you can get your very own.
I'll have more opportunities to hear from customers and partners this week, both informally at receptions (such as this evening's, at the Shark Reef) and during breaks (such as this afternoon, when I talked with some attendees about today's SDP sessions, the importance of use cases and of a holistic view that embraces business architectures, and much much more.) If you're at rationalconf2005 and are interested in learning more about developerWorks -- or want to share your questions and comments re: how to make the most of dW -- please consider joining us for:
If you can't make it to these events, feel free to send an email (to moc at us dot ibm dot com) with your thoughts.
Watch this space -- and developerWorks -- for more about IT lifecycle management issues, which I understand will get a fair amount of the focus during the next few days here at rationalconf2005.
