Kristin,

I received a copy of your email where you mentioned you have thought about
conducting Java classes for experienced AS400 professional.

Have you ever considered offering Web based trainig sessions on Java with
on-line mentoring?

Gary

Hi,

Well, I spent 2 years studying nights and weekends to learn Java related
things while I was still on the AS/400 doing RPG ILE.

I also took 5 weeks of classes at Sun on all the Java topics that
related to what I was interested in doing.

You have to take the introductory classes, and then get some experience.
I was fortunate to have a client that included me in their first
Java/AS/400 WebSphere project.

>From there, it was lucky breaks maybe, but I am on the forefront of best
practices now and have some major clients, where I give there projects
planning, direction, and do the development.

I did many presentations to AS/400 User Groups and to Common on learning
the new technologies.  One presentation is "A Day in the Life of a
WebSphere Developer", another is "AS/400 Legacy Integration" and
"Running Tomcat on the AS/400".  I also ran the Java Labs at Common with
Don Denoncourt.

Sometimes I think about teaching a week class for AS/400 programmers on
Java...

Kristen

So what is the best approach? What should I learn?

AS/400 and 5 years Java. I wish I was 3 people.

You need to broaden your horizons beyond the iSeries if you want to
remain
busy with contract work. I started on the System 3 years ago, moved
through the S34/36/38/AS400. For years and years I was always able to
work
every hour I had available and more. I saw the market changing and
started
to train myself in the Microsoft Development tools, VB, Access, SQL
Server.
I still have iSeries accounts but more and more, my work is Microsoft
centric. The last year, I've been busier than ever in my 30 year
career.
