Nick Litten – AS400 iSeries and IBM i
I’m an IT Consultant and IBM i Software Developer (aka RPG Programmer) primarily working on IBM Power Systems (IBM i, System-i, iSeries, AS400).
I believe us
older more experienced programmers have a responsibility to share the knowledge and help the *freshers* who are stepping foot in the IBM i pond for the first time.
Thirty years ago (damn that makes me feel even older than I am) I fell into computer programming as a career.
This was back in the days of IBM System/38 machines, the IBM PC XT was just being conceived, APPLE was working on its APPLE 2E, the internet was a futuristic dream and dialup Bulletin Boards were leading edge social media.
My home computer was an IBM PC XT with a modem the size of a shoe box that I plugged into my parents phone line, after disconnecting the bakelite rotary phone.
Working on IBM mainframe/midrange systems has taken me around the world, earning a good salary and, most importantly, doing something that I have really come to love: RPG is a fantastic language, IBM i is a terrific operating system and the hardware is second to none.
The website is my attempt at sharing the IBM i Love, highlighting some programming techniques and sometimes just waffling about personal lifestyle nonsense.
If you are looking for some professional help on a project please reach out to me.
If you are looking for some programming or technical tips then get searching.
If you are just here to enjoy to waffle then read on my friend 🙂
