Legacy Communities

If you’re looking for a developerWorks forum — Don't panic!

You are in the right place. You are here because many IBM developerWorks forums, blogs and other Connections content have been decommissioned. This page will help you find the content you are looking for, get answers to your questions, and find a new community to call home.

Where am I?

You are on the IBM Community site, a collection of communities of interest for various IBM solutions and products, everything from Security to Data Science, Integration to LinuxONE, Public Cloud to Business Analytics. This is where anyone—customers, partners, students, IBMers, and others—can come together to collaborate, ask questions, share knowledge, and support each other in their everyday work efforts.

Each solution, concept, or topic area has its own group. For example, the Hybrid Data Management community contains groups related to database products, technologies, and solutions, such as Cognos, Db2 LUW , Db2 Z/os , Netezza(DB2 Warehouse), Informix and many others.

Navigating the Community is simple: Choose the community in which you're interested from the Community menu at the top of the page. In each community, choose your group from either the Topic Group menu, or from its group tile in the community page itself. Want to join? Just click one of the many Join buttons on a group tile or the group page to become a member!

We invite you to come explore the community, join the groups of interest to you, and participate in the discussions that are ongoing. After all, a community space is the best place to get answers to your questions.

Where is the IBM Developer Answers (formerly developerWorks Answers) forum?

The platform was sunset on 30 April 2020. Much of the content was migrated to the IBM Support forum. Links to specific forums will automatically redirect to the IBM Support forum. You can find migrated questions by using the forum’s search mechanism or by choosing the product or topic tag.

Where is my product specific forum, formerly located on IBM Developer?

These individual forums were decommissioned on 31 May 2020. The questions from many of these forums were migrated to the IBM Support Forum and you can find them using the search mechanism or by choosing the product or topic tag. Forums not migrated to the IBM Support Community were migrated to the IBM Community area or decommissioned.

Were all IBM Developer Groups, Wikis, Communities and so forth migrated?

No. In general, migration and sunset decisions were decided by the business area. Content that was not migrated was archived or retired. Content that was migrated is now located either on the IBM Support forums or the IBM Community.

Where is the Support information that was previously on the IBM Developer platform?

Much of the forum, wiki and community content was migrated to the IBM Support forums. The search field on the IBM Support forum will help you find the migrated content.
