Message from the Vice President

As we all know I cancelled our February meeting. We were expecting another snowstorm, and I didn’t want to take the chance of having Charlie Guarino drive up from Long Island in difficult conditions. That being said, we’ve rescheduled Charlie for April 15th….tax day.

Now on to our March Speaker, Aaron Bartell. Aaron is coming to town to deliver his session on Web Services. Aaron is currently the Director of IBMi Innovation at Krengel Technology Inc. His career with Krengel Technology began in 2005, where he pioneered the development and release, in 2006, of RPG-XML Suite at Since then Aaron has invested his time and efforts serving the customer base of Krengel Technology and the greater IBM i community—eventually earning the designation of IBM Power Systems Champion in 2012. Over the years Aaron has spoken to many IBM i user groups and conferences on many topics including web service communications, mobile development, RPG programming, application modernization, and overall development best practices. Most recently, Aaron played an instrumental role in making the deployment of Ruby on Rails* a reality on the IBM i platform. Today, Aaron’s focus includes implementation of the Ruby on Rails framework for IBM i customers, enhancing the value of RPG-XML Suite, and advancing the adoption and contribution to open source technologies that strengthen the value IBM i creates as a business computing platform. Aaron is in a great position to show web services on the IBMi to us—all you have to do is come and learn!

May The Force be with Us…………
