Erwin Earley from Rogue Wave is coming to us this month to speak on exciting open source topics.


Session I - Introducing Node.js on IBM i

Abstract:  One of the newer open source languages on IBM is Node.js.  Node.js provides the ability to execute java-script on the server-side.  This opens up a world of serverless and microservices solutions. This session answers the question “what is node.js” – additionally we will take a look at how Node.js can be used in an IBM i environment and the integration of Node.js with DB2 and ILE.  Additionally, we will take a look at the syntax of the language and how solutions in Node.js can be daemonized to server multiple simultaneous requests. Come to this session to learn more about this exciting open source language that is now available on IBM i

Session II - Exploring NoSQL Databases

NoSQL databases provide for storage and retrieval of data that is modeled in ways other than tabular relations used in relational databases. This session will explore why NoSQL databases are important as well as showing how to work with some of the more popular NoSQL databases such as MongoDB.
