Speaker: Brian May (Profound Logic)

BIO: Brian May, an IBM Power Systems Champion and Solutions Architect for Profound Logic Software, devotes the majority of his time to assisting customers with their modernization efforts. He frequently writes and speaks on topics related to RPG, JavaScript, and IBM i Modernization. Brian recently contributed his time and expertise to the new IBM i Modernization Redbook.

5:00 Session 1:
Hiring and Retaining Development Talents

  • Abstract: In addition to speaking with customers and conference attendees about their hiring woes, I have also been involved in the hiring process for two different companies. After years of watching the industry and gathering input, I have come to the conclusion that the industry and the candidate pool are not always the problem. In this session I will share not only how to hire great candidates, but I will also discuss how to keep them!

7:00 Session 2:
Organizing an ILE Application)

  • Abstract: Over the years, I have come up with my preferred way of organizing an application. This method was developed from experience as well as from knowledge of Object Oriented programming concepts. In this session, we will discuss building service programs and procedures in object like structure. These service programs will encapsulate File I/O and business logic into reusable and maintainable pieces.
