RPG Editor Showdown


So you've been using SEU for years but have been dreaming of seeing more than 19 lines of code at a time.  In your dream you reached for RDi but realized you only had $30 because you spent the rest on Super Bowl tickets.  This must be what the middle seat on the airplane feels like.

Next you see a man coming towards you with an asymmetrical receding hairline.  It's Aaron Bartell and he's wearing skinny jeans.  He stands on a box of soap and proclaims "I can edit RPG with many different editors".  His boldness convinces you to pay your user group dues and attend the meeting to learn more.

WebSockets, Node.js, IBM i, and Watson


HTML5 gave us WebSockets. IBM gave us Watson. Did you know we can easily access Watson from IBM i for our own business purposes? Did you know there is a free tier for Watson so you can get started without spending a dime? Sooooo stinkin' cool.

In this session we will learn the following:

  • What are WebSockets
  • Walk through the creation of a simple WebSocket app using Node.js
  • Learn about what Watson is and available APIs.
  • How you can call on Watson from IBM i using Node.js.
  • How WebSockets work to communicate from browser to IBM i and from IBM i to Watson.
  • How the Node.js socket.io library makes it dead simple to do WebSockets.
  • Walk through creation of WRKACTJOB WebSocket app

LUNCH 12 - 1
