Session 1: Accessing RPG & IBM i from other Platforms

Session 2: Save Time, Money and Effort with Python Modules

Acessing RPG & IBM i from other Platforms

Even when the native green screen is in full swing as the primary I/O for IBM i, there may still be a need for other systems to provide an interface whether for UI, Integration or BI type uses.  This session will explore the architectures of the alternative approaches to accessing IBM i from various systems and where a good investment might help an organization meet it's goals in leveraging IBM i as the system of record.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review several alternatives of communication
  • Explore the pros and cons
  • Refocus on Services and how their integration can leverage the IBM i investment

Save Time, Money and Effort with Python Modules

Python's greatest strength does not lie in the syntax of the language but in the various modules available that bring in existing functionality.  In this session we will discuss over 20 of the most popular Python modules that are shipped with Python or are available via third party sites.  We'll walk through exampes of production applications of many of these python modules to clearly articulate the value of these very power components in the battle to get more out of less in the IBM i development day.
