Open Source, System i software, Web Development
If the Young i Professionals blog is to be trusted, interest in open source applications on System i is growing.
Brian May wrote from Common Directions, the System i-focused trade show down in Dallas last week. The YiPs had a table down there, and May reported that it “seems everyone at the conference was asking about open source software, Web 2.0, MySQL, and PHP.” He followed that up with another post yesterday saying that he “spoke to lots of people, all of whom were interested in and excited about the site and the open source applications that we have loaded on i.”
If you’re unfamiliar with PHP on i, check out this tip from Andrew Borts as a starting point.
