Lab - Using RPG OA and HTML5 Frameworks for Mobile Development

Want to find out what it takes to build Mobile apps on the IBM i? Don’t know where to begin? Come to this lab session to learn about the different approaches to Mobile application development and how HTML5 and RPG Open Access can help in this effort. We will build a working mobile application from scratch.
Requirements: Bring a laptop. No special tools are necessary. You will only need a browser (Internet Explorer 7+, Chrome, or Firefox). We will use a cloud-based development environment and Mobile emulator.

About the speakers:

Eamon Musallam has been involved in the IBM i community for 16 years. As Product Marketing Manager at looksoftware, Eamon has worked closely with many IBM i customers to assist them with their application modernization requirements & successful implementations. He has been a frequent speaker at COMMON, DevCon, OCEAN and other IBM i community events, and has authored articles in several System i publications on the subject of application modernization

Alex Roytman is an innovator in the field of legacy application modernization, with a concentration on creating rich browser interfaces on the IBM i (iSeries / AS400) system. His company, Profound Logic Software, provides an innovative graphical user interface platform for ILE RPG developers on the IBM i. Profound Logic has facilitated the modernization of many millions of lines of legacy RPG code, and serviced thousands of customers, including prominent enterprises such as Nintendo, Disney, Nike, Pepsi, FedEx, Volvo, Sony, General Electric, and Warner Brothers. Most recently, Alex and his team have worked closely with IBM to define a new era for the IBM i platform – an era where a graphical user interface is native to the system. Through a joint offering (RPG OA from IBM and Profound UI from Profound Logic), developers can use sophisticated design tools to create native IBM i user interface objects to modernize and extend existing legacy code. This new approach has proven to be 10 to 20 times more effective compared to traditional application modernization.
