Free-Form RPG Success Story

Manta customers tend to be a quiet bunch. They rarely comment on what they like or dislike, even when we ask for feedback. This would be a cause for concern except for the fact that most of our customers have renewed their licenses for 10 to 20 years now. We seem to be doing something right!

Nevertheless, it made us feel good to hear from a new customer who purchase the RPG Development Combination Pack during the sale this spring. Mark, who is the IT Development Manager at a small company, had this to say:

Just wanted to share that we have our 1st success with the RPG Free course. We hired a young guy with C and C## who's willing to learn and within in 45 days is an active RPG programmer and working our backlog !!.

Thanks, Mark. That was exactly our intention when we developed the Free-Form RPG Programming series. During Manta's Fall Combo-Pack Sale, you can share Mark's success and save 20%.

New Courses and Updates

Manta has recently posted updates to the Fundamentals of IBM i Operations series. As always, customers with an active license for this series received the updates at no charge.

We also released the third of four new courses expected this year that cover IBM Navigator for i. Work Management Using Navigator for i shows how to use IBM's Navigator for i (also called the web console) to perform basic IBM i work management tasks involving jobs, job and output queues, subsystems, and memory pools. The course also describes Navigator for i facilities for monitoring your system. This discussion includes the new the web console dashboard.

Previous courses of this series were introduced earlier this year. They include:

For customers who are still using System i Navigator, the Manta courses covering this topic will remain available in the library.
