ASNA is proud to announce two free ASNA Wings half-day workshops in Raleigh/Durham and Cincinnati on September 28th and 29th, respectively. In these workshops ASNA’s Roger Pence will show how to use ASNA Wings to modernize RPG green-screen user interfaces. These workshops follow two previous, very successful, half-day workshops in Chicago and New York City last May.

ASNA Wings is a revolutionary new product that modernizes IBM i – RPG character-based user interfaces. Wings is a member of the ASNA Monarch family of RPG modernization products. Using IBM’s Open Access RPG Edition, all RPG programming logic and file IO remains on the IBM i. ASNA Wings converts green screens into browser-based replacements.

In these fast-track, hands-on workshops, Roger explains IBM’s Open Access, Wings’ architecture, and then shows how to use Wings. He’ll also show how to add vital enhancements to the presentation layer- without needing to change or retest your server-side RPG logic. He’ll also discuss the business reasons for application modernization and how Wings fits into your long-term application migration strategy.

During the event, Roger covers the details of basic modernization with Wings, but also digs into sophisticated modernization techniques. He’ll cover many techniques including how to use Ajax for a more responsive user interface, how to integrate your green-screen application with external data sources such as Google Maps, and how to present a professional user interface with CSS and HTML.

If you’ve ever been to one of Roger’s presentations, you know his presentations aren’t your typical half-day, try-to-stay-awake-while-being-endlessly PowerPointed sales presentation. Roger keeps things lively, personal, and refreshing while delivering the information you need to make important decisions about your RPG application portfolio.

Says ASNA’s Roger Pence, “This isn’t a typical infomercial sales presentation. During this presentation I use Wings live, with a real IBM i RPG program, to show you how to modernize an application. You can understand Wings very quickly when you see it in action. Attendees will see for themselves how quickly Wings can produce a dramatically better UI.”

After the presentation, Roger will lead a group discussion about the state of the IBM i over a working lunch. You’ll have the chance to voice your opinions and concerns about all things IBM i in an enlightening networking environment. One lucky attendee from each city will win a brand-new iPad2.
