Group Detail: This growing community allow for members to post their solutions and ideas as well as receiving valuable information based on opinions of members and their experiences - this User Group exist to portray the Open Community and the facing of IBM and its products. We do not dictate the blogs, but we do recommend for each individual to start sharing their ideas (in Blogs that are available to each member, and by actively participating in the surveys and the activities found here. In doing so you will be rewarded with points and at a given time these will be rewarded in exchange for a gift). The experience and the use of the GWC is valuable to us and it will help to not only strengthen our WebSphere Knowledge, but also help the larger commnunity to share in their past experiences with proven concepts and IT solutions. With Toronto WUG we try to aim at direct interaction with IBMers from all over the world and correlate to people that share the same ideas from qualified members. All ideas are welcome on how you want to improve this site, and we look forward to sharing online content with our members. As a member we invite you to Enjoy the different Presentations and Videos as well as Podcasts and Blogs. The search capability to easily find your way to specific solutions has been improved and key tags have been made available to enable this functionality.

It has been a while since I last had a chance to send out broadcasted content, so a lot of you must have been waiting patiently (I have no excuses, it has been quite busy on all fronts).
Now that things return to normal (kids are going back to school etc.), I decided to take the time to update the last PowerPoint Presentations we had at our last 2nd semester meeting that was generously hosted by University of Toronto.
We were able to hear about Worklight (IPAD / IPHONE / Android / BB Portable Device development) easily portable product that reduces the time to market Portable applications.
We also heard about WebSphere Security Hardening and the things Administrators need to know to secure their Application Server environment.
And Rational (I dont need any introduction to how Rational works, but Dmitry Baev explained ways to simplify Development in Rational.
Overall a mix of products that really was a good 4 hours (we could have probably spend a full day in my view).
So I look forward to what we will see at our next meeting and please goto the Presentations section on WUG Portal where you will find the Presentations available at your leasure.
Hope you have a great week and see you all soon.
