First with PHP and IBM i (Intermediate)
The development world has
changed, whether you like it or not! Many application
development projects are being geared directly at Mobile
computing these days and the desktop is quickly becoming an
afterthought. Are you ready to embrace an integrated IBM i
solution that leverages the open source nature of PHP to let you
develop mobile applications? Using straight HTML5 and CSS and
also the popular native mobile applications thanks to the wizard
builders inside Zend Studio 10, we’ll see how quickly and easily
legacy data and business logic can be exploited to deliver state
of the art mobile computing solutions all running on IBM i. Learn
how to convert an IBM i report to a PDF and publish as a Google
Mike Pavlak has been working with IBM midrange solutions
since 1992 and IBM Mainframes before that. After years of
developing applications using RPG, CL and PHP he managed IT
development and IT for power protection manufacturer Tripp Lite.
Mike joined Zend Technologies as a Solutions Consultant working
with the IBM sales team in 2008 and enjoys helping IBM i
customers explore PHP as a state of the art solution for
application modernization. In addition to several roles as a
volunteer with COMMON the premier IBM midrange user group, Mike
also teaches PHP classes part time at Moraine Valley Community
College in Suburban Chicago. Mike lives in suburban Chicago
with his wife, five kids, two dogs, two cats, a leopard spotted
gecko, Russian tortoise, two rabbits, and a half dozen fish.
At our October meeting, David
Andruchuk, Senior Architect for Computer Systems Design
Associates, Inc. introduced us to Google Apps for the IBM i. He
showed us the possibilities
of what you can do using Google Apps and your IBM
i DB2 data. With virtually endless possibilities, we were shown
new methods to connect with our associates. Thanks, David, for
your informative, compelling, and entertaining presentation.
You have a unique and refreshing style, and as we weave the
tapestry of life, I do hope to see you in the future. Have you
wondered how to integrate a mobile device to your IBM i? Seems
to be trending right now. Mobile connectivity…how do you get it
For our November meeting we have
Mike Pavlak of Zend
Technologies coming to show us how to do just that. How PHP can
integrate mobile devices with the IBM i. Mike’s presentation,
Mobile First with PHP and IBM i, will get you ready to
embrace an integrated IBM i solution that leverages the open
source nature of PHP to let you develop mobile applications.
He’ll show us how, using straight HTML5, CSS and the popular
native mobile applications inside Zend Studio 10, to quickly and
easily exploit legacy data and business logic to deliver state
of the art mobile computing solutions…all running on an IBM i.
