Summer’s coming to an end and fall is on it’s way! Football will be in full swing before we know it, and that means the 2018 Fall COMMON Conference is fast approaching! This year’s conference is in Pittsburgh, PA from October 15th through 17th. Additionally, there will be preconference sessions that are available on October 14th. Take advantage of this great opportunity for AS/400 education!
This year’s conference features nearly 40 speakers presenting over 100 sessions covering 15 courses of study to help your company get the most from your investment in the system and for you to advance your IT skills and career. The courses of study include sessions to enhance your technical skills, such as: Application Development; Database (DB2); IT Open Source Languages; IT Strategy; Mobile and Modernization; Security; Systems Management; Web Applications; and RPG IV. Additionally, there are courses to improve your “soft” skills, such as Client Connectivity, Developing Business Skills, and Networking. Participants may focus on a single course of study or participate in sessions from multiple areas, whichever option best fits your needs.
COMMON is predicting a very busy EXPO as well! This will give you an outstanding networking opportunity to meet with IBM i vendors, including Silveredge. Stop by and say hi to Lou Boers, VP-Technical Services and at least one of our consultants. Don’t forget to register for our raffle, and let us know where we can help. Chances are – we’ve done that!
Furthermore, the fall COMMON conference will also be offering participants the chance to take COMMON certification exams that will allow you to demonstrate to others your commitment to your IT development. These exams include: Associate AIX 7 Administrator; Business Computing Associate; Business Computing Professional; Associate IBM1 7.1 Administrator; Certified Associate Application Developer – ILE RPG Programmer; and COMMON Certified Application Developer – ILE RPG on IBMi.
