IBM i FORUM: NEW OPEN SOURCE LANGUAGES

If you want to learn more about modern languages and Open Source for IBM i, Chicago is the place you need to be on December 2 and 3, 2015.

 

For two days, immerse yourself in learning with a focus exclusively on IBM i. You will gain the knowledge you need without the distraction of other topics. Customize your learning by choosing from pathways focused on Ruby, Python, or Node.js.  You'll get in-depth education from industry experts -- everything from getting started with Open Source, compiling your own Open Source code, to building your first application over these two days.

 

Session topics include:

  • Compiling source code
  • Version control
  • Database connections
  • Application development

 

Conveniently located near Chicago's O’Hare Airport, travel to/from the event is easy. Many nonstop flights are available, and Interstate 90 is nearby for those driving.

 

With the growth in Open Source, you cannot afford to miss this educational opportunity by COMMON. Register today.
