IBM has announced new social technology enhancements to developerWorks to help software developers work together on open standards-based innovations.
According to IBM, while developers have access to a wide variety of IT resources scattered across the web, many are struggling to maximize their productivity and are faced with filtering through multiple networking sites just to get to the technical information they need. As a result, there has been no way for developers to access and integrate this information to build their skills around key IT and industry trends while connecting and collaborating with peers.
IBM is responding to these requirements, with My developerWorks, combining the best in social computing technologies and professional networking into developerWorks, IBM’s online destination for IT professionals worldwide.
Now developers can easily gain real-time access to key technology updates, connect with other experts around the globe and build critical skills requirements quickly to speed development and bring new innovations to market faster – from deploying complex cloud computing applications to architecting a smarter energy grid to building Java applications, said IBM.
