TOPIC: Roundtable discussion follow up for RDi

This meeting will be a roundtable discussion to share your experiences and questions about  RDi.  We'd like to have a discussion about your experiences with  implementing and using Rational Developer for i, how it has affected your development team, getting management buy-in, inhibitors, and much more.

This will be a great chance to ask real-life questions and get pointers, whether you are using RDi or are contemplating it.

MRMUG sponsored a Rational Developer for IBM i all-day lab last October.  We’d will look into follow-up labs and education for Rational developer for i if there is enough interest so please give us some feedback. 

Please contact me (CNelson@ciber.com) if you are able to addend this meeting and discuss your experience with RDi; how it is used in your enterprise, your opinion of its effectiveness in your work, how easy (or difficult) it was to learn, etc.

If you attended the  RDi All-Day lab last October, please let me know (CNelson@ciber.com) if you are able to attend to talk about the lab experience and any other education that you have had regarding RDi.
