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 a new course in July, Basic Operations Using Navigator for i. This course shows how to use IBM's Navigator for i (also called the web console) to perform basic IBM i operator tasks. The course assumes the student has already completed Using Navigator for i, which is available as part of either of the following Manta series:

See the Manta catalog for course objectives and detailed course information. In addition, as is the case with every Manta course, a free demo for Basic Operations Using Navigator for i is available from this web site.

Basic Operations Using Navigator for i is the second of several web console courses that will be released this year. The next course in this series, Work Management Using Navigator for i, will be available in October.

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