Summit attendees see tangible results of their education


Over the years, the members of the System i Developer consortium have learned a lot from development-oriented System i vendors. That's why we consider them such a vital part of our community and our educational events.

The RPG & DB2 Summit conference provides a friendly, informal setting in which to chat with a targeted group of organizations that provide commercial and/or educational support to RPG and DB2 developers. These organizations have a vested interest in keeping our core technologies viable, and they just may have the solution to a problem that has been driving you crazy. Many of them offer free tools or subscriptions in addition to paid products. We have a great line-up of Exhibitors joining us for this conference.

In addition to our vendor sponsors, many thanks to our very important media sponsor:
