[Webinar] DevOps for IBM i using GitHub, JIRA and Jenkins

How can traditional IBM i development languages, like RPG, CL, DDS or even COBOL, be integrated into the modern or open source tools used by other development teams, like Jenkins, GitHub, and JIRA?

In our Webinar, you will see how to bring the different teams into sync, using the same tools and delivering changes together.

Properly configured, these open source tools make development much easier on IBM i.

We will demonstrate how to:

  • Automate a complete DevOps cycle, using open source tools across both IBM i and distributed systems
  • Manage all your source code (RPG, .NET Java, PHP…) in the same repository
  • Simplify the most complex tasks, like the “smart build” of ILE and DB2 SQL
  • Work with concurrent versions and “branches” that are safe and easy to manage

Learn from our DevOps tips and techniques for IBM i.  Watch the replay!
