ASNA is proud to announce the first two cities in its “No Stinkin’ Screen Scrapers Here” 2012 US tour. The first two free hands-on workshops will be held in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and Las Vegas, Nevada on February 9th and 24th, respectively. These workshops are the natural follow-on to ASNA’s previous tour of half-day Wings presentations around the country. Those presentations were very well received, but we heard attendee feedback loud and clear: you want to touch Wings; you want to use it! That’s what you’ll do in these workshops.

IBM i shops have universally told us that screen scrapers just don’t do the job. They need something better. That something better is ASNA Wings. ASNA Wings is ASNA’s revolutionary new product that modernizes System 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.

Hosted by either ASNA’s Tim Jannsen or Roger Pence, these Wings hands-on workshops aren’t your typical PowerPoint seminar with a donut and a cup of coffee. Rather, these sessions provide PCs for your use. You will work along with us as we show you how to use ASNA Wings to modernize an RPG application. You’ll see how to use ASNA Wings hands-on, in a live setting, with an actual RPG application running on an IBM i.

This ASNA Wings workshop is free and includes lunch and a great door prize. To accommodate potential traffic bottlenecks, we don’t start until 9:30 AM—and we’ll have you out by 3:30 PM. You’ll have plenty of time to beat traffic coming and going.

The hands-on experience you’ll acquire at this workshop will very quickly prove to you that Wings is the fastest, best way to add new life and value to your RPG application portfolio. This session will cover:

  • The basics of IBM’s Open Access
  • A quick introduction to Microsoft’s Visual Studio
  • How to use Wings to import and create browser-based alternatives to your green screen display files
  • Powerful ways to further enhance the user experience in your Wings pages

In addition to our planned agenda, there is plenty of time for questions and answers.
