Make the Move to VS Code on IBM i

The IBM i development environment is changing with exciting new tools. Join us to see VS Code as an editor of native IBM i code and learn about the extensions that make this possible.

We’ll discuss and demonstrate key features now available and what’s coming:

  • Arcad’s integration with VS Code to expose the metadata that allows Developers to see the impact of their changes before they even start.
  • How Git allows Developers to work synchronously and efficiently with other Developers using tools like SEU or RDi.
  • Extensions for Code Quality/Security, impact analysis, smart build, conversion to Free Form, …
  • And – the most exciting part – how non-IBM i Developers can now contribute directly to IBM i projects without having to know the “unique” details of the IBM i, while at the same time ensuring efficient oversight of their changes.

It’s a brave new world. Arcad can help you on the journey!
