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
www.rpg-xml.com. 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!
