 Mobile Apps—What You Can Expect When Deploying

 

Charlie Guarino, and Alan Seiden, both experts in their fields, will demonstrate a mobile solution they’ve collaborated on, developed, and implemented.  In this double session, Charlie and Alan will show us the issues they’ve encountered deploying this application, and how they addressed them.  Charlie has the iSeries side of the application where Alan has the mobile side.  Charlie—RPG, Alan—PHP.

 

With an IT career spanning over 30 years, Charles Guarino has been a consultant for most of them.  Since 1995, he has been founder and President of Central Park Data Systems, Inc., a Long Island and New York City area based IBM midrange consulting and corporate training company.  Owner of Alan Seiden Consulting, Alan's team helps the IBM i community create web and mobile applications by combining PHP, RPG, DB2, and Zend Framework.

 

Message from the Treasurer

The January meeting started with a twist—the restaurant had problems with the heat in our normal area so we met upstairs.  The waitress was a real trooper even though she had to leave the room and go around in order to get from the front to the back of the room.  The meals and service were stellar anyway.

 

When the time came for the meeting portion, Carrie Beers met with us and shared some great ideas on how to have/build cooperative teams.  We went over the different classifications of people and how knowing which type of personality is being dealt with can assist in understanding them and creating a more harmonious group.   Those in attendance found Carrie to be a fantastic speaker and we hope to have her back again soon.  (Possibly to cover our session "Supporting Difficult Users" scheduled for June.  We could have her expand this issue and open our meeting to other departments within our Companies)

Message from the President

For February’s meeting we’re having a double session.  We’ve enlisted Charlie Guarino, and Alan Seiden, both experts in their fields, to demonstrate a mobile solution they’ve collaborated on, developed, and implemented.  In this double session, Charlie and Alan will show us the issues they’ve encountered deploying this application, and how they addressed them. Charlie has the iSeries side of the application where Alan has the mobile side.  Charlie—RPG, Alan—PHP.  Sounds good…The IBM iSeries….mobile devices….communicating….very cool….

 

This is a topic that’s come of age, has become mainstream, and pretty much impacts life….period.  Everyone loves their smart phones, and mobile devices.  They’re here and never going away, only question is what they’ll morph into—something for future discussion.

 

May The Force be with us……

 

Dick Ferrara, NEMUG President
