This introductory RPG IV programming workshop presents RPG IV (ILE RPG/400) from start to finish. If you’re new to RPG, this class is for you. It covers all the language’s specifications and structures. The material in this class will arm you with the skills and knowledge you’ll need to build basic RPG programs.
This intermediate class covers the Integrated Language Environment – modular programming, procedures, service programs, and activation groups. This class shows you how to exploit the “new” RPG syntax to take advantage of the benefits of modular procedures, code reuse, and service programs. The class will bring you completely up to date on all the new features of the last few releases. The class goes beyond RPG IV syntax, concentrating on ILE architecture.
The IBM i Concepts and CL Programming workshop introduces overall IBM i (iSeries, AS/400) concepts, including object architecture, user interface, and basic work management concepts. In addition to providing a comprehensive introduction to IBM i, this class introduces Control Language programming concepts and helps you understand its primal position in the IBM i world, including its role in the Integrated Language Environment (ILE).
IBM has replaced the traditional IBM i development tools (PDM, SEU, etc.) with Rational Developer for i (RDi). This class shows you how to upgrade your skills from the traditional green screen tools to the new graphical development platform.
