started with .NET for IBM i Developers
Even though you use the IBM i as
your server platform, your shop may be using or considering
application development with Microsoft .NET. Before getting
started with .NET development, it is helpful to understand some
of the basics of .NET, including the .NET Framework, the
programming languages that are most widely used (Visual Basic
and C#), the Visual Studio development environment, the ASP.NET
deployment environment, and perhaps most importantly, how you
can connect to your IBM i from .NET. In this session, we will
look at the major features of the .NET environment and how it
fits in with the IBM i.
