Join us at InterConnect 2017 for the latest in Rational Application Developer (RAD)

Excited to join @HCLTech team at #ibminterconnect in Las Vegas & meet friends in #WebSphere community

We will be there to explain how HCL is taking a number of IBM products forward, with new innovation and investment, bringing you greater value than ever before.

I’m working in the Rational Application Developer (RAD) team at HCL. In case you didn’t know, we released a new version (v9.6) of RAD, and its sister product Rational Software Architect Designer (RSAD), in December 2016. RAD/RSAD 9.6 are based on Eclipse Neon, which was released in June 2016, making this the first RAD delivery that has shipped in the same year as the Eclipse it is based on since RAD 8.0, back in 2010. This is just the first demonstration of HCL’s commitment to vitality and relevance for RAD and RSAD.

At Interconnect we have a joint RAD/RSAD presentation which will focus on this latest delivery (Session #6972). Sandeep Katoch, RSAD Architect, will describe all the new capabilities we shipped in the RAD 9.6 and RSA 9.6 products in December. If you’re writing REST services, come and learn about the new Swagger REST service model in RSAD.

In the same session, Cesar Cervantes, RAD Architect, will perform a live demo of RAD 9.6 to show you some of these new features in action. He will highlight the extended support for JavaScript, both in unit test and code coverage tools, and also show how to integrate command line utilities into your favorite IDE using RAD’s new CLI framework.

I hope that if you are attending Interconnect this year you will be able to come to our session, learn all about the cool new stuff we have done and ask these smart guys all the questions you have about RAD and RSAD. This conference is such a great opportunity to meet face to face with people who have so much knowledge about their products and about the industry in general.

I really want to emphasize that HCL views these products as vital and strategic, and is backing that up with investment. We want to partner with you, our customers, to enhance these products and to make them even more useful to you. Please come and talk to us at the conference, tell us what you like and don’t like about our products. Tell us what we can deliver to make your lives easier. Ask for a confidential roadmap briefing. We will be at booth #548 on the Concourse floor and you can always connect with us through the conference smartphone app.

I look forward to seeing you all at Interconnect, and continuing our partnerships in this new and exciting venture. See you in Vegas!
