IBM Boosts Linux Resources For Developers


To address a forecast leap in the use of Linux, IBM's developerWorks site, IBM's resource for developers, is expanding its support for Linux with new content, hands-on training, certification and easier navigation.

According to a recent report by the research firm Financial Insights (an IDC Company), Linux spending will reach $1.8 billion in 2007 compared to $393 million today.

IBM says developerWorks Linux is offering developers a new DVD Software Evaluation Kit, which enables users to build applications and Web services and deploy them on IBM middleware for Linux. The free two-CD kit contains trials of the newest products, tools, and information resources to help developers create on demand applications. The Software Evaluation Kit also includes 8 KB of free code for: Rational Rose and PurifyPlus for Windows, WebSphere Studio Site Developer V5.1 or WebSphere SDK for Web services V5.1, WebSphere Application Server V5.0.2, DB2 Universal Database, PDE V8.1.3, Tivoli Access Manager V4.1, Lotus Domino Server V6.0.2.

In addition, IBM is hosting no-charge worldwide Linux technical briefings. 54 half-day briefings focusing on Linux will be offered to developers beginning in May 2004.

Also available on the developerWorks Linux site is a Windows-to-Linux Migration roadmap. As Microsoft withdraws support for older Windows operating systems, IBM quip[s, IBM is supporting the developer community by offering tutorials and materials to help them migrate to Linux.

These new resources build upon the Linux momentum IBM says it generated last year. 2003 Linux milestones include, in IBMs words:
