PHP101 for IBM i 

This session provides and introduction to PHP code on IBM i. Topics include everything from Hello World through a database listing and i5 Program call. 


This session focuses on how a total solution can be composed using web best practices. This presentation decomposes a working example of how PHP can be used to access data on IBM i and present that information using the powerful combination of HTML and centralized formatting available via Cascading Style Sheets or CSS.

Web Services with PHP on IBM i 

 Service oriented architectures are taking over the data center and the world and PHP makes integrating with that world simple and powerful. This session discussed the diversity of the world of Web Services and explores and example of REST and SOAP web services talking between two remote IBM i severs. The evolution of inter-program communication will be reviewed as a basis for conceptualizing the business value of PHP Web services, as well.


PHP Toolkit Functions 

Many features of the IBM i operating system are taken for granted when developing RPG/CL applications. This session focuses on how developers can leverage the classic and new Open Source PHP Toolkit that enables access to many native IBM i features like data areas, spooled files, and native COBOL, RPG and CL programs. The toolkit makes the Zend PHP solution for IBM i one of the best options for application modernization as the attendee learns to mix and match PHP and RPG programs to develop a GUI front end for legacy and modern applications.
