RPG & DB2 Spring 2020 Summit: Cancelled

March 18th, 2020

We have  been informed by the conference organizers that they will not hold the Summit in Dallas from March 24th – 26th as scheduled.  We’re sure this must have been a difficult decision for Susan Gantner, Jon Paris, and Paul Tuohy.  The System i Developer folks care deeply about the iSeries community and we know this must have been a hard choice to make, but the right one for sure.

But stay tuned! When we learn any new details, you’ll be the first to hear about them!

AS/400 Education: COMMON POWERUp20 and Silveredge Consulting

February 25th, 2020

The spring thaw will be here before we know it, which means the COMMON POWERUp20 Conference is coming up soon! This year’s conference is in Atlanta, GA from April 20th through 23rd. Additionally, there will be preconference sessions on April 19th. This is a great opportunity for AS/400 education and networking!


Over 100 speakers will present over 350 sessions covering at least 20 areas to help your company leverage your investment in the AS/400 system and for you to advance your IT skills and career.  (Yes, we know that it is no longer the AS/400.  Problem is: search engines show everyone still searches on AS/400 rather than the re-names!)

There’ll be sessions covering areas to enhance your technical skills, such as: Application Development; Database;  Hardware; High Availability Resilience; IFS; IT Strategy; Java Language; Linux; Lotus Collaboration; Middleware; Mobile and Modernization; Open Source Languages; RPG; Security; Systems Management; Virtualization; and Web Applications.

Also, there will be courses to improve your “soft” skills, such as Client Connectivity, Developing Business Skills, IT Leadership and Management, Networking, and Personal Development. Focus on a single area or participate in sessions from multiple areas, whichever works best for you.


All of this means this year’s EXPO will be more exciting than ever! EXPO is an incredible networking opportunity to meet with IBM i peers and vendors, including Silveredge. Stop by and say hi to Ambrose Marton, one of the owners of the firm.  It’s fun to pose tech questions to him!

Remember to stop by and register for our raffle, and let us know where we can help. Chances are – we’ve done that!

RPG & DB2 Spring Summit 2020. Stop By and See Silveredge!

February 25th, 2020


We can’t wait for the RPG & DB2 Spring 2020 Summit in Dallas, TX from March 24th – 26th! Once again, a “headstart” day of several hands-on workshops will be offered on Monday, March 23rd.


This Summit is a great way for developers to augment their IBM i skills and knowledge. Susan Gantner, Jon Paris, and Paul Tuohy will be joined by many additional industry renowned guest instructors who will present more than 60 sessions over the three days in a vast array of pertinent IBM i subjects. These will include the latest methods and best practices for immediate use in IBM i application innovation, web development, and mobile apps. More precisely, the topics will include: RPG IV, ILE, and Free Form RPG; SQL; DB2 for i capabilities; Application Modernization; Leveraging RPG for Web & Mobile Apps; Open Source for IBMi; IBMi Data Analytics; Web Services; ACS, RDi, Git and other modern tools.

And as always, there will also be lots of networking opportunities! During this year’s summit, you’ll have lots of chances during breaks, lunches, dinners, and the Expo segments to talk with the guest instructors, vendors, and your peers in a slightly more casual and highly educational setting.


In addition to all of the informative sessions, the EXPO is the place to be! Please join us at the Silveredge booth to chat. We provide programming and analytical services to the IBMi community, driving value and quality to our customers and we’ve been doing that successfully since 1987.  We always look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones.
