Hi all..

Im currently working on my thesis, and will graduate in June. After graduation
I'll start to work fulltime, but I'd still like to stay updated on the
development/new research within my "area" - which is Software Architecture.

For that reason, im considering to join either IEEE's Computer Society or
ACM. Now, the question im asking myself is how much one will gain from
such a membership.

A quick glance at the membership benefits shows the following:

I get a fancy email alias
IEEE: computer.org
ACM : acm.org

I get free online books
IEEE: 300
ACM : 1000

and access to online course modules
IEEE: 350
ACM : 1000

Please note, that I like in Denmark, Europe (I might move to UK in June
though). Note furthermore, that I (most likely) will remain to have
access to the ACM digital library and the IEEE digital library, which
contains research papers.

Does any of you have any expirience with any of the above mentioned memberships?

Thanks in advance,

Svend Rost
Look! I laid an egg! Why does it smell like that? Tiny ad, does this smell weird to you?
