Welcome IBM Developer (formerly developerWorks) forum & community folks—Don't panic!
Remain calm; you're in the right place! You are here because specific IBM Developer forums, blogs and other community content has been discontinued. This page is here to help you find the content, get answers to your questions and (if you need one) find a new community to call home.
About IBM Developer (formerly developerWorks)
IBM Developer continues to remain a valuable community for developers offering tutorials, code patterns and other technology-focused content. The IBM Developer site is undergoing some changes to its community experience and some of its older forums and communities on the platform have been sunset. This includes the IBM Developer Answers forum and other product specific forums and wikis.
Much of the content contained in these communities has been moved to the IBM Support Community, and the forum content moved to the new IBM Support forum. Other non-support content was moved to IBM Community. See the FAQ below. For more information about the IBM Support Forum migration and transformation see this IBM Support Insider blog article.
Where am I?
You are on our IBM Community area, a collection of communities for our various IBM solutions and products, everything from our Security offerings to Db2 to Middleware to LinuxONE to Public Cloud. These communities are where members—IBMers, partners, clients, product owners, and others—come together to collaborate, ask questions, share knowledge, and support each other in their everyday work efforts. Below is a quick overview of how the Community is structured.
Navigating in the IBM Community
IBM Community, as a whole, is a collection of major concept or topic areas under the IBM AI and Cloud business area (with a few others as well). All major product and solution areas are included in the Community, such as Data Science, Business Analytics, Hybrid Data Management (Db2, Db2 on z/OS, Informix, etc.), Internet of Things, Security and so on.
Each solution, concept, or topic area has its own community. The community for Hybrid Data Management, for example, contains all of the database and database-related products and solutions such as Netezza, Informix, Db2 for z/OS, Db2 Warehouse and many others. When you navigate to a community such as Hybrid Data Management, you will be able to choose a group for your specific product or solution.
To find the group you’re interested in, simply choose it from the Topic Groups menu, or scroll down the community page and select it from the groups listed. Non-members have access to all group content, but only members can participate in group discussions, add content, and blog. Click the Join button on the group tile or the group page to become a member of the group and the IBM Community.
When in doubt, reach out to other group members in the community. After all, that’s what they’re there for.
