Hi, Currently, I am working in Iseries and have 3.5 years of experience as RPG and CL developer. Now, because of the shrinking usage of Iseries I am planning to shift my profession as PL/SQL developer. Could anyone advise whether it will be a wise decision to continue my profession in Iseries or shift my profession as PL/SQL developer. I am from India.

    I'd advise you to shift. Not because the AS/400 is going away any time soon, but because everyone who goes elsewhere opens one more opportunity for me. (Should you trust my advice?)   Asking others for career advice is rarely a good idea. No one has a clue what's good for you. It's almost always worth the time it takes to learn different platforms, but it's never certain if it's better actually to change a career path or not.   Tom

    If you feel comfortable making the change and if there is a market for the new career path you might consider it. As Tom mentioned we can offer our insights but it's only our opinion. I would hate to give advice that hurt someone financially or otherwise. I personally made the change from the i-Series RPGLE world after 30 years to the .NET world. Been working with it four about 4 months and find the challenges enjoyable. I was also fortunate the career change was within the same company. Like I mentioned that's my personal experience and I would not want to tell you go ahead and make the change. Learning something new can never hurt your career as long as you make smart decisions.
