'PART II of i to i’,  IBM/i to iPhone/Blackberry  

Web Development on the IBM/i


            This two part series will take the attendee from knowing little or nothing about web-development to rendering data and metrics to SmartPhones with a special emphasis on the iPhone.


                     The second session will focus on the client-side i.e the browser, with particular emphasis on rendering to SmartPhones.  A SmartPhone is defined as a phone with a browser such as a Blackberry or an iPhone.   



PART II:   'i to i’,  IBM/i to iPhone 


            In this session the attendee will learn how to render System/i based data and metrics to ‘Smart-Phones’, such as the iPhone and Blackberry. By the use of meta-tags and conditional CSS, minimalist web-pages are rendered to the Smart-Phones that fill the available screen space, but still provide the drill-down capabilities of traditional web-pages.


            By this method, executives can monitor their systems and applications from their cell phones without the need to fire-up their laptops or desktops.  This delivery mechanism can also be used by corporations to make data readily available to their clients.


            The attendee will learn
