The OCEAN 2014 IBM i Technical Conference is just around the corner! If you're looking for a good reason, here are three of them from IBM Champion Scott Klement!
1) “We work in a technology industry. Technology, by nature is always changing, so it's important to be kept up-to-date in your area(s) of expertise.”
2) “Networking with your peers is important, you should have friends you can call on or run ideas past.”
3) “OCEAN's Technical Conference and Expo is the best resource for all of this stuff in the So Cal area.”
You can network with Scott Klement, Author and Product Developer at Profound Logic Software, and an impressive group of other leading industry experts at the reception and dinner on Thursday, July 17, at the Avenue of the Arts Wyndham Hotel.
Plus, Scott will be presenting three sessions at the main event on Friday, July 18:
Accessing External Databases from RPG - Ever wanted to access an SQL Server from an RPG program? How about MySQL, Oracle or even DB2?

Install JDBC drivers for use in RPG and 2.Write RPG code to issue SQL statements against JDBC drivers.
