Joel, I don't envy you this change. It would be a strain on me to keep
up with IBM i and also concentrate on the new job.
Still, here are some ideas.
You can get free use of a machine at pub1.de - it is at v5r3, so nothing
really current now.
That is the new address for the rzkh free offering. There are various
for-cost offerings at rzkh.de
The basic free offering gives you 50MB of disk - there is an expert
offering for 60 euro annual with 250MB, and a developer offering with
1GB for 150 euro annual.
The fee-based offerings start at 199 euro for a 6.1 or 7.1 system with 4
libs and 1GB - other details at rzkh.de in the pricing list PDF there.
There are other fee-based offerings that have been mentioned in these
lists - I think you could take a look at www.idevcloud.com - contact
them there for pricing details.
And if you could come up with a product idea for IBM i, you could always
join partnerworld - then you'd have free access to a virtual loaner at
the most recent release levels.
There are a couple IBM sites for modernization - they would be a pretty
static thing, with guided tutorials and all - so maybe not much use.
You COULD attend webinars and labs offered by COMMON and others - of
course, they are usually during the day, so they'd get in the way of
your new job.
