Latest Rational Team Concert - 6.0.2 now, keep agile delivery going :). Playgrounds
As I'm not good at writing long posts to sell you how good RTC is (and free for up to 10 devs) , I'll limit myself to the purpose of this post: to raise awarness of where to play with it (no costs, DIY the quickest)
Currently I have two options (if more, let me know in comments please):
1. free sandbox avail for 6 months ! (yah, not 30 days)
Here you need to login / create an account with some mail address. Use a free one, I do.
The thingies you do here have chances to get deleted later (than sooner), but I use this sanbox to do most of my studies before I apply changes to the actual project areas I use internally or for customers.
As the RTC concepts are the same as they were when RTC 1.0 started (I was playing that too :), this is mostly sparring me time of install/setup/configure. Ha, talk cloud advantage.
In the sanbox you can also access Quality Management and Requirements Management apps, which are part of the same platform, but yes, do different things :)
You can also invite others ! to your Project Area, so grab your team mates, have them play. Fair warning: stick them up for a while until they start grasping the concepts ! You'll be rewarded afterwards. And you'll thank me.
2. second option is called bluemix.net. And I stop here, as Ralph's entry is much more detailed.
