What are these sessions about?

Patterns and Antipatterns for Adopting IBM DevOps Tools

In this, we discuss our experience implementing various DevOps tools including Rational Team Concert, DOORs Next Generation, RDz, RDi, and other editors, as well as concepts regarding Agile adoption. We’ll cover what you should do, as well as examples of what not to do.


Tips for Developing and Testing IBM Host Access Transformation Services Applications

This is geared towards the audience with a general familiarity with IBM HATS. We’ll go over the general flow of  designing different types of HATS apps from the simple to the complex. We’ll also cover testing strategies and introduce a Unit Testing framework we wrote to test custom HATS Java code in isolation from the host system. This unit test framework saves a HUGE amount of wasted time from regression errors and helps to promote and ensure quality deep in the system. We also cover some gotchas on performance testing. 


The Skills Dilemma: A Panel Discussion with Peers and IBM Experts

Here, we’re on a panel with others members of the IBM community (business partners and IBM’ers) discussing how to get over the skills hurdle, how outsourcing is not a panacea, and how your organization can better prepare for the business challenges ahead.

We look forward to seeing you next week!!
