Brace yourselves, IBM Impact 2014 is coming

While I’m not able to attend IBM Impact this year, I am working on a lot of things to make it an awesome experience for you (if you attend Impact). My colleagues and I in WebSphere Education contributed dozens of lab exercises to the curriculum that will be available in the Open Lab center at Impact. I wrote an article about that here.

We also tested the lab exercises that are offered as scheduled lab sessions. I tested some of the labs on mobile technologies myself, and wrote an article about that here
Another cool thing that you can do at Impact is get certified on any one of hundreds of IBM products and technologies. Being certified in some of these technologies ourselves, my colleagues and I can tell you what you need to do to get certified at Impact:

Theme week: Optimizing your infrastructure

The IBM Mobile blog has been running “theme weeks,” so I chose to write an article for last week’s theme, which was “Optimizing your infrastructure.” When I think of optimizing your infrastructure, I think of performance tuning, in particular, tuning the middleware layer, so I give my tips on tuning the IBM Worklight Server.

It is published here – Changing your tune from desktop to mobile.

You can check out the other articles published from that week on The Mobile Frontier blog.
