I'm about to head to the airport (heading to rationalconf2005 in Las Vegas, where I'll be blogging daily, helping with the show daily newsletter, and presenting at the conference). Before I leave, though, I wanted to spread the word about a just-published developerWorks interview involving three prominent leaders -- not only at Rational and IBM, but in the broader software development community. As Rational Software co-founder Mike Devlin prepares to retire and is handing the reins over to veteran IBM executive Danny Sabbah, Grady Booch interviews both. The result is an insightful discussion of how Rational has impacted software development, why Rational and IBM joined forces, and what the future holds for IBM Rational (which Grady aptly describes as "the software development brand at IBM Software Group"). My thanks to Mike Perrow, Editor-in-Chief of The Rational Edge , for pulling this together, as well as to Grady for asking insightful questions and to Mike and Danny for answering 'em. Check out the complete interviews on developerWorks.
