Valuable Sessions Continue on Day 2 of the 2018 ECC Conference

In this post, I am sharing with you the complete program for Day 2 of the 10th Annual Enterprise Computing Community Conference. I am also including my notes in the form of a brief description for the sessions that I attended, including both the keynote and different concurrent sessions. The sessions on Tuesday were stimulating and valuable and I was excited to be able to present my materials in the 11:40 a.m. to 12:10 time slot.

Open Source Has Never Tasted So Good!

Yes, my blog has been a bit “dry” lately, but the open-source world certainly hasn’t been! In fact, we recently released one of the most significant enhancements to date. While I’ve spent the last few months speaking at conferences, user groups and briefings, my favorite topic of discussion has been this momentous delivery. And, at the POWERUp18 conference (formerly known as the COMMON Annual Meeting), I had the privilege of announcing it as generally available.

Back to Basics: aixpert

On the road again. Nothing surprising about that because I travel internationally two or more times a month. What is unusual is that this year about half of my trips are security related (the other main topic is performance although I prefer the term resource optimization).

Prestart Job Configuration Settings

Prestart job entries are shipped with default configuration parameters. This basic configuration allows the operating system to manage the prestart jobs and generally works well on small systems or environments with limited use. But as your environment gets larger and the use of prestart jobs increases, you will need to review these parameters and customize them. You can view and change your presetart job entries via the command interface or with the Navigator graphical interface.

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. That’s also the bad news: Now Jon has to come up with a new project as that was number one on his to-do list!

IBM i in Healthcare: IBM’s WISH Application

Another story I ran into while celebrating the IBM i 30th Anniversary this year comes to us, again, from Belgium. At first, when I heard about it, I thought it would make a great client story for the IBM i 30th site, but, well, it just doesn’t quite fit, so I’ll feature it here instead.

A Goodbye, and Many Thanks

After 28 years of working with IBM Db2 for z, and almost 11 years writing the DB2utor blog for IBM Systems Magazine, I’m saying goodbye.

My Blogging Anniversary

What were you doing 11 years ago? I was living in another state and working for a different company. Since then I moved back home to Arizona. I lost weight, got more active, and spent more time outdoors camping, backpacking, hiking and going on scuba trips.
