From the President
October was a great session. We started our journey with Operations Navigator led by Larry Bolhuis working through the basic functionality to support and administer the system. Those that participated walked away with additional skills that could put to use daily. Larry completed a thorough review of the basic functionality of Navigator and answered questions and led a lively conversation on navigator capability and use.
We'll continue our journey exploring use of Operations Navigator in November. Led by expert Paul Tuohy the session will focus on Navigator functionality from a "Programmers Prospective". We'll explore use of DB2 and SQL functionality within navigator. You may join in onsite or remotely for the session. You're welcome to walk through examples during the session making use of the iDevcloud box. To prepare make sure to have Operations Navigator loaded on your lap top. Whether your interest or career currently includes programming or not you'll be sure to walk away with something new that you can put to use. During the session there will be plenty of opportunity for questions and open discussion.

We will break for the Christmas holiday and there won't be a meeting in December. We are in process of finalizing plans for January's meeting. Recently support of "Ruby on Rails" on IBM i was announced. Very exciting effort underway that will make a significant difference for IBM i. We are fortunate to have Aaron Bartell presenting and introducing our group to use of "Ruby on Rails" on i.
We'll be kicking off our student/member project during the March meeting. The effort will align members with students. Students will create a game working with member mentors. Not many rules, other than the game must be coded using IBM i tools for development and to have fun with the activity. We will make use of the iDevcloud box for the activity. Students will have one month to complete projects. The effort will help students get to know our great community and learn skills on the platform. The games will be presented during the April user group meeting and will be judged by attendees. Prizes will be awarded to the winners.
We are asking group members to step forward and volunteer to work with students and/or to contribute to the prize fund. Prizes will include $s raised that can be put to use for tuition, books or other student expenses. The activity is a great way to help engage students on the platform and help build resource for the future.
We look forward to seeing you onsite for the November member or joining in remotely for what is sure to be an awesome meeting.
