IBM Helps Build Students’ Software Development Skills.

 eWeek (06/07/11) Darryl K. Taft

 IBM announced during its Innovative 2011 conference that it is bringing its Jazz development environment to universities.  IBM says JazzHub is part of an effort to assist students and professionals in building the necessary software development skills to develop complex, intelligent product designs.  JazzHub will enable university teams to develop directly on the IBM Jazz.net Web site at no cost.  The cloud-based service is designed to serve as an open ecosystem for students to build new and innovative software applications.  North Carolina State University (NCSU), which is participating in the JazzHub beta program, plans to immediately incorporate JazzHub into its coursework.  Previously, the university used Jazz for research analyzing information about artifacts and in an online course in Agile software development.  “Software engineering courses are meant to prepare students for the practice of designing, developing, understanding, and maintaining software in the real world, and the effectiveness of these courses has a tremendous impact on the software industry,” says NCSU professor Jim Yuill.  “IBM’s continued commitment to provide collaborative tools, at no charge to students, greatly improves the quality of their learning.”
