The QUSER group is an excellent opportunity to network with peers, share ideas and tips, and become knowledgeable on topics relevant to the IBM iSeries community. We are continually moving forward with a new agenda structure and support from various groups, and most importantly, you. IBM, COMMON, and our sponsors are committed to the success of the QUSER group by providing support for guest speakers, education, and other areas of need.
You have no doubt heard about PHP on IBM I and may have found yourself thinking ‘that’s nice, but what can PHP do for me?’ This session sets out to answer that question. In this session we will take a look at the application modernization capabilities provided by PHP as well as the ability to leverage open source applications utilizing the ubiquitous LAMP stack (although we spell ours iAMP) that PHP along with MariaDB provides for IBM i. The session will highlight the open source toolkit for calling ILE programs from PHP scripts, the DB2 language extensions that facilitate integrating DB2 access into your PHP programs, and the MariaDB storage engine for deploying open source applications on IBM I while having the data for those applications resident in DB2. By the end of this session you will be able to anser the “what” question and also found yourself asking the “why” question – as in why haven’t I implemented these solutions yet.
