IBM Reaches Out to 5.7 Million Developers

I never thought of IBM as a leading company for developers. Sure, it has all the Cobol code-monkeys pretty well sewn up, but it doesn't have the footprint of a Microsoft, Borland or Sun.

Yet somehow, IBM managed to get 5.7 million people to register for its developerWorks Web site, which it revamped last week. The new news is Developers Exchange, a set of areas where coders can share code and programmers can share programs.

We're looking to add some of these features to Web sites for Redmond Developer News and Visual Studio Magazine.

Is this a good idea? And if so, how should we do it? Let me know at [email protected].
