This guide teaches programmers who have been left behind in the IBM i's evolution to code more productively and modernize their business applications. Shirey uses a casual, humorous teaching style to explain the concepts, along with plenty of code examples. Readers will gain confidence in areas that may be new to them and use the provided examples to practice what they've learned. The manual is structured so that whether they are using the latest IBM i technology or an older version, readers will learn methods to improve coding and applications, as well as become comfortable with writing programs using ILE RPG, free-format RPG, and Model-View-Controller (MVC).
