Summary: ASNA is holding two free Mobile Computing for the IBM i workshops in New York (May 14, 2013) and Atlanta (May 16, 2013). ASNA’s Roger Pence shows how to resolve your IBM i mobile application challenges with ASNA Wings and ASNA Mobile RPG. This isn’t a PowerPoint-driven “drone and moan” workshop! Roger keeps the pace lively, interactive, and hands-on. 

San Antonio, TX, and Barcelona, Spain, April 24th, 2013. ASNA will hold the first of several Mobile Computing for the IBM i workshops on May 14 and May 16 in New York (Manhattan) and Atlanta (Alpharetta), respectively. Hosted by ASNA’s Roger Pence, these fast-paced and fun workshops show attendees, with live demonstrations, how ASNA Wings and ASNA Mobile RPG solve the challenge of creating mobile applications (targeting smartphones and tablets) for the IBM i.

Mobile RPG, ASNA’s latest product, enables RPG programmers to use their existing RPG skills to create great mobile applications with ILE RPG. There is no need to spend months learning traditional mobile technologies such as HTML/JavaScript/CSS/Objective C/Java. In the time it would take to fully explain your mobile needs, your RPG team can create the mobile solution you need.

ASNA Wings lets you create alternative browser-based displays for your existing RPG applications. This session will show how to use Wings to create browser-based displays with a special focus on the ways these Wings displays work on tablets.

Among the things you’ll learn at this workshop are:

  • Why a mobile strategy is important to businesses using the IBM i
  • The top three things to consider when crafting your enterprise’s mobile strategy
  • Understanding the ROI that a robust mobile strategy can deliver to your business
  • How to create great smartphone apps quickly with plain ol’ ILE RPG
  • How Wings makes tablets effective “portable” IBM i workstations
  • How Mobile RPG quickly elevates your RPG programming team to be mobile programmers
  • The importance and relevance of IBM’s Open Access API for the IBM i

This isn’t an old-fashioned “drone and moan” PowerPoint-driven day. Roger keeps the pace quick, the answers short and clear, and dispatches the sales pressure. He will be using ASNA Wings and ASNA Mobile RPG with a live IBM i connection.

This ASNA Wings workshop is free and includes lunch and one lucky attendee in each city will win a Google Nexus 7 tablet. To accommodate potential traffic bottlenecks, we don’t start until 9:30 AM – and we’ll have you out by 2:30 PM. You’ll have plenty of time to beat traffic coming and going.

Register for one of these workshops today. Seats are limited.
