Db2 for i – Ping Pong Match
Scott (Ping) - IBM's Db2 for i owner (Scott) vs the Queen of Db2 for i (Birgitta) in a match to the death. What could be more exciting? Upon further review, we have decided to conduct a friendly match of "Anything you can do, I can do better". Scott and Birgitta will take turns talking about their shared passion... Db2 for i.
Birgitta (Pong) - Db2 for i is integrated in the operating system. Data which is mainly stored in database tables is our most valuable asset. SQL provides commands for generating database objects, for manipulating data in these database objects. Different join methods and around 180 scalar functions, including functions for generating XML or JSON data are available for editing the data in the we needed. Multiple techniques, such as RCAC (Row and Column Access Control) are available for securing the data. With the last releases a lot of powerful features are integrated in Db2 and SQL, and with each technology refresh we get additional enhancements.…but what about our legacy applications? In this session we will illuminate several discussion points from two perspectives, from the architect’s (Scott’s) and the programmer’s (Birgitta’s) side.

Speeding Up Time to Production - Automated IBM i Application Testing
There is a growing requirement for IBM i shops to develop, modify and test applications quickly and reduce time to production. However, many IBM i applications are monolithic and complex making it difficult for developers to make changes to these applications without the need for rigorous testing. Automation is key to adapting rapidly and getting key changes implemented quickly.
Fresche's end-to-end testing suite, which includes X-Datatest and the newly-released X-Replay, reduces risk by enabling developers to test the UI, business logic and changes made to tables. X-Datatest helps prepare data for testing, create test cases, automates regression testing and integrates with IBM’s Code Coverage to validate the completeness of your test. Together, the solutions form a highly effective IBM i application testing suite.
 
Join Ray Everhart to learn :
  • Best practices for automated end-to-end testing 
  • Technical demo of X-Replay for automated 5250 UI testing 
  • X-Datatest for test data management, regression testing and Code Coverage

LPARKit- Tool for quick deployment LPARs and cloning IBM i OS using the HMC/VIOS or Virtual Partition Manager
LPARKit is a green screen interface which isolate VIOS/HMC layer from IBM i administrator. It allows quick deployment of LPAR and clone IBM i operating system from the template partition. It also allow to manage virtual storage adapters, maping/unmaping vSCSI disks or creating virtual adapters reports in the spool or csv file.
For small customers which use IBM i as the hosting LPAR, it provides a new interface for quick LPAR creation rather than use Virtual Partition Manager in SST. It also provide a mechanism to clone the operating system stored as NWSD object. 
 
The tool can be also used in the private cloud as a native green-screen deployment interface or by business partners. A BP can prepare IBM i image with all PTFs, toolset required by a customer, store it as a binary image and deploy on the customer machine.

DevOps on the IBM i – Client testimonial: Acushnet
It’s been over a decade since the foundational principles of DevOps first spread through the distributed-systems development space. The Agile approach to developing, testing, releasing, and operating applications is making its way into more traditional infrastructure, like IBM i, and the benefits are clear. Organizations are finding their developers are more comfortable using this model and that it facilitates greater collaboration across teams, but many others don’t know where to start.
 
In this session, we’ll discuss with Acushnet (global leader in the design, development, manufacture and distribution of performance-driven golf products) many reasons to move to DevOps, how the approach integrates across IT departments, and what pitfalls they have seen—and survived—as they’ve rolled out DevOps for IBM i.

Managing IBM i - Building blocks of ACS and IBM i Services: Part 1
In this session Scott Forstie & Tim Rowe will teach you how to use IBM i Access Client Solutions (ACS) and IBM i (SQL) Services. SQL can be used for more than querying database tables. With the invention of IBM i Services, there are many options for accessing and managing IBM i. This workshop will explore how to leverage ACS and SQL to accomplish amazing things. We will learn how to modify and enhance these to take your system management capabilities to the next level. Additionally, there are many examples that Scott has created to help IBM i clients accomplish modern system management.
Workshop requirement: You must have ACS 1.1.8.5 installed and connected to an IBM i running at IBM i 7.3 or IBM i 7.4. Download ACS at http://ibm.biz/IBMi_ACS

Hands on building a Node.js application on IBM i: Part 1
JavaScript has become one of the most popular programming languages in recent years, ranking #1 in GitHub in 2017.
Today JavaScript is the de-facto language in the web front-end realm.
You can use it across various platforms and browsers, and it does not discriminate against back-end languages. 
Thanks to the birth of Node.js in 2009, JavaScript has even become a back-end language itself.
In this session you will learn how to configure and use it on IBM i.
And learn how to integrate with your current applications.
