All Day Education with

Aaron Bartell


Half-Day Mobile Development

This power packed seminar is geared towards a half day (3.5hrs to 4hrs) of presenting.The focus is on mobile development for RPG programmers and dives into many areas including showing how to do the complete setup of a programmers desktop environment for Android development and producing a first Hello World program, all the way to doing HTML5 mobile development. After doing initial introduction I dive further into the technologies to show some real-world applications I have developed that show how one can leverage their RPG knowledge and take their company to the next level without leaving the IBM i platform. All tools and utilities are free and open source so all attendees can try them at no cost to their business!


HTML5 for RPG Programmers

HTML5 is the new perfered direction for all new web development and is being pursued instead of things like Adobe Flex/Flash and Microsoft Silverlight because it isn't proprietary.

Learn of the new features in HTML5 along with a brief history as to why they were needed. See realworld examples of html5 being implemented on the UI with RPG/IBMi as the backend.

Gain insight as to what out-of-the-box frameworks you can use to build your web and mobile applications more easily without having to have an in-depth knowledge of HTML5.



Power of Open Source JAVA

In this session you will learn how RPG's Java interface extensions can be used to
exploit the wealth of Java Open Source applications.
We will start by explaining the basic RPG syntax extensions and demonstrate how the interface
works through practical examples. Examples will include:
* Interfacing with the Twitter API to easily send tweets (a.k.a. status updates) from your RPG
* Creating QR codes interfacing with Zxing API's from the community and Google
* Building pie charts, bar graphs, and more buy interfacing to the JFree.org APIs
We will also discuss how the performance of such Java utilities can be improved through the use
of server job and data queue interfaces.


RDPi Tidbits of Goodies

Have you been using RDPi (aka WDSC/RDi) and are looking for the little tidbits to make
you even more productive? Or maybe you are looking for THEE reason to actually switch over
from SEU?

No matter the cause, come and see 40+ tips about what I love best in RDPi and how I customize it to best suit my needs. If you have a tip for your fellow RDPi RPG programmer please
bring it with to this session and let your voice be heard!
