I think that's a great point Kelly. I think I'm among a lot of iSeries folks
that think in terms of lists. That's our background. And I know when I've
designed web sites, it looks like a list of 'things' cause that's the way I
think. I can produce some really nice ETL code for loading to web sites, and
I can write some really good code to process orders from web sites, but the
whole visual thing isn't me.

For all we know the source behind gotomeeting page was auto-generated code
(or at least partially auto-generated). The source behind BCD's home page is
better. At any rate, like Mike said earlier, the only way to fairly judge
the quality of the webinar is to attend it.

I also agree with Vern: the excellent tutorials at www.w3schools.com are
probably just as good or better than the webinar in terms of the information
provided. Yet, some people are auditory learners and want to hear the
information from a live teacher. They will also have the benefit of being
able to ask questions.

I think these posts do raise an interesting question of how RPG/COBOL/CL
programmers should be retrained in IBM i modernization. Do we really expect
people who are great at developing RPG and COBOL programs to be great at
designing web pages as well?

The ugly part isn't necessarily how the page looks, it's the HTML behind
that page.

Shoot me, but I don't think it looks that bad. I guess I have spent too
many
years with 5250.
I guess we don't' care if it works or flows well, or how long it takes to
bring the page up, just how pretty it is.
That is the difference is taking wares to the market now I guess. It HAS to
look good first.
