RPG DB2 Fall Summit 2018. Come and Meet Silveredge.

August 29th, 2018


IBM i developers take note…Fall is on its way and football has begun! We’re all thinking about the Fall RPG DB2 Summit in Lombard, IL from October 2nd – October 4th. In addition, a “headstart” day of several hands-on workshops will be offered on October 1st.


This summit is a tremendous chance for developers to augment their IBM i skills and knowledge. Susan Gantner, Jon Paris, and Paul Tuohy will be joined by many industry renowned guest instructors who will present more than 50 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: Python; RDi; ILE; Free Form RPG; DB2 for i strategies; Application Modernization; Leveraging RPG for Web and Mobile Apps; Modern database techniques; and other modern tools.

We’ve also very recently learned that SQL has become a rather hot topic at this year’s summit, and the community helped ensure there would be plenty of new sessions dedicated to it. More specifically, sessions are offered on SQLRPGLE, SQL Writing Tips and Techniques, SQL Stored Procedures and Application Modernization, Dueling SQL, and many, many more. Seats are filling up fast!

And as always, there will also be plenty of networking opportunities! During this year’s summit, you 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 with Sue Boers, President, and Ambrose Marton, Executive VP. We always look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones. Sign up for our raffle and let us know how we can help you. Chances are – we’ve done that!
