IBM Resources

We’ve assembled a great set of IBM Resources for you,  available throughout the conference. Watch for our team with purple lanyards, and check out the IBM Resource Hub in the middle of the Solution Fair.

Also, don’t miss our miss our noon session during lunch in the Oakton Ballroom on Wednesday. Marina, Shelly, and Anna will be sharing their IBM journey with us. They will be discussing their entry into the platform, their involvement with COMMON and local user groups, and their mission to support and encourage new-comers to IBM i through the creation of the professional group New to IBM i (N2i). Learn how they hope to draw young IT professionals to the platform, how this can benefit your companies, and how you can get involved.

The Midrange Dynamics North America product suite manages IBM i and multiplatform development, new technologies, and initiatives like DevOps with ease. Git and SVN users benefit from interfaces to their source repositories and comprehensive deployment/rollback. Those with complex requirements appreciate our rich API functionality and flexible deployment. MDCMS excels in managing SQL development. With MDWorkflow, track requests, integrate with Jira/Service Now, or orchestrate your CI/CD pipeline with APIs to Jenkins, Azure, and more. MDTransform maps and manages database file changes; move new versions into production in seconds with MDRapid. With MDRest4i, create, manage, and deploy REST APIs using your RPG skills.

I believe they are waiting for a few more submissions. The presentations will be available on the site and will be communicated via email shortly.
That is correct, we are waiting for the rest of the presentations and there will be an email sent out early next week to show where to find the presentations.
Any updates on the presentation slides?
