OSLC Roadmap for Innovate 2013

IBM is putting a lot of emphasis on OSLC at its upcoming technical summit, “Innovate”. (Given the recent news, can you blame them?)

Let's start with a few special events (notice that the first two have registration pages … you should guess that that they also have free beer!):

Special Events

Open Lifecycle Summit

Join this one-of-a-kind event to experience two-and-a-half hours of relevant, interesting, entertaining, and make-you-the-star-of-your-organization presentations and discussion.

The integration center will highlight the power of OSLC and display a range of currently available and early prototype integrations being developed by IBM, Business Partners, and the community at large.
