Open source introduces a new world of possibilities for modernization, application development, and solution deployment on the IBM i platform. But how can companies navigate the mystifying processes and technologies needed to capitalize on this trend?

Webinar Series: Demystifying and Implementing Open Source on IBM i

In this two-part webinar series we work to demystify the questions that surround open source on IBM i, and show developers a successful pathway to modern open source development.

Part 1: Demystifying Open Source on IBM i

For those making their first foray into open source on IBM i, the requisite technologies and processes can be borderline mystifying. Join us for a discussion of common concerns, including quality, security, open source development vs. proprietary development, and how open source ownership comes into play.

Part 2: Setting up an Open Source Development Environment on IBM i

Making sense of the technologies and processes needed to implement open source on IBM i can be difficult. So how can teams succeed? This webinar will show you how to successfully implement open source, including taking an IBM i environment incompatible with open source to a system that has all the requisite pieces for developing in open source languages like Python, Node.js, and PHP.
