IBM Rational User Groups

Rational User Groups are independent, user-run organizations that provide an open forum to promote information exchange between end users and Rational experts. They bring together bright minds and bright ideas. After many years of absence, the Bay Area and Sacramento Rational User Groups are up and running again.

Each meeting allows users to learn about different areas of the Rational Tool Suite. The meetings are customized to suit the learning needs of the majority of the members. Members are encouraged to ask questions and participate in the presentations in order to create a richer learning experience. Food and drinks are always complementary thanks to our sponsors
