Last week, I wrote about web hosting and breaking up the monolith. These are two big ideas that moved forward (or are moving forward) at different rates of adoption. One peaked and the other is heading for it rapidly. This week, I’ll focus on computing architectures and the emergence of Linux.

Not surprisingly, my prediction held true. For today’s brief blog post, I wanted to list (in no particular order) 10 of the many amazing things that happened in 2018.

An Update on DATA-INTO and More News

We mentioned in our second article on DATA-INTO that " ... we look forward to seeing what third parties and open-source groups can do with it." Well soon after that piece was published we received good news and bad news. The good news was that Scott Klement had added a DATA-INTO JSON parser to his port of YAJL.

Conferences, Community and More Ahead for IBM i in 2019

Greetings from the Rochester, Minnesota development lab! I’ve been a bit quiet lately, as the team works diligently on the amazing things we have in store for the future.  However, the “conference season” has gotten off to a good, leisurely start, and will soon hit its full stride.  That means many of us IBM i experts (inside and outside IBM) will be on the road, and I’m hoping we will see you attending at least one event.
