If you are noticing that the weather has turned from warm and sunny to a bit crisp and cool, maybe it’s time to take a trip to the sunny state of Florida, and attend iSeries DevCon 2008 in Orlando between October 27 and 29th. An early registration discount is offered up until October 3, 2008, so it may be worth checking out soon.
I looked through the course offerings, and found some that looked pretty interesting to me including an entire track on getting ready for V6R1. My interest was also piqued by a session on CL that focuses on new enhancements and fixes to old problems.
“… learn all about the new enhancements that IBM has made to Control Language (CL) in recent releases. Find out how CL can now address a wide range of applications that it couldn’t reach before. Delve into new data types and structured code for easier communication to other jobs on your system. Understand how to declare variables of type pointer in CL and then learn how to use subroutines to divide a CL procedure into tasks of logically related code and understand the types of APIs that CL can now call that used to be unreachable from CL. Take a first-hand look at some of the most annoying problems encountered by CL programmers over the years and get expert advice to overcome them.”
With an esteemed group of experts, the conference looks like it has some good content if you have the money in the budget to check it out. If you’re planning on attending and would like to share your experience with other Search400.com readers, let us know (email email@example.com).
