ModernizationOur presentation this month will be given by Russ Roberts of CHG Healthcare. He will focus on the use of the IBM i as a Web Server to serve data to browser-based applications. Russ will discuss how the two work together to provide a much better user experience over the 5250 interface and how this changes how we develop applications. It makes application development more diverse so Russ will do a brief overview of HTML and CSS, what they are and what they do. A more in-depth discussion will be on JavaScript and IBM i Web Services, along with Russ’s software, DB2 for i Web Services, which provides create, read, update, and delete capabilities to your applications. Other things that will be covered are:

  • The Basics of JavaScript syntax
  • Introduction to JavaScript Frameworks
  • The Chrome Developer Console
  • Code Editor Options
