Hey, I just signed up for DeveloperWorks!!! I didn't have to use a serial number or anything. Does that mean that my former banishment from Ascential DeveloperNet is over? Yippeee! I can now see what I used to be able to see before I was kicked off! I win! I win! I win! I just had to wait long enough.





Sounds petty, doesn't it? Twisted Evil

Ahhh well.... Twisted Evil

I'll just have to enjoy it.... Twisted Evil

I'm signed up now as well and can finally see the insides of DeveloperNet too, should I wish to. No more "yes, I use DataStage but don't have my own license... OK, I'll use an email address from my client's domain..."

There remain areas within DeveloperWorks that you will find you can not access without a maintenance licence.

It's about time. There is almost no WebSphere II content anywhere in Developerworks and this big forum dump will give it some a big kickstart. Now if only they started putting WebSphere II articles into Developerworks...

We can expect a lot more people signing up at dsxchange now. As this website is now the only website with 24/7 support.

Ok, it's dead Jim. Now, where in the heck can I find its new home on developerWorks? Somewhere in the Websphere forum arena? Confused

On Tuesday I blogged about Developernet being unavailable and Developerworks not being ready yet. I actually got a blog comment from a US IBM employee when the forums were ready! It appeared at that point as though they had put it in the DB2 forums (which would have resulted in a very critical blog) but in fact it is being mirrored to both the DB2 and the WebSphere forum groups.

I doubt we will ever see the file upload area again. Developerworks don't really have an open upload area.

I was aware of all that... just couldn't find the transplanted forums anywhere, even in the WebSphere area.

Today there's a link to them from the corpse of ADN:

http://www-128.ibm.com/developerworks/forums/wsdd_forums.jsp

Doesn't seem like all the forums made the trip...

Yes, the developerworks forums are terrible. The interface is really, really bad. The search is poor and doesn't seem to work at all well and has no advanced search option. These are mirrored forums from real newsgroups so I assume there are newsgroup tools out there that we could use instead?
