Node.JS - Building Apps/Mark Irish

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Some developers may be resistant to using Node.js as they think it will be difficult to learn, or that none of their old RPG, C, CL, or COBOL programs will be accessible from Node.js. This talk will dispel those myths and demonstrate how to build applications that compliment the work that your developers have already done. In particular I will demonstrate how to create a simple Node.js application using the itoolkit package to call RPG programs and CL commands. We then take that application and expand its capability with LoopBack, a Node.js package that allows you to create quick and simple APIs. Throughout the talk I will highlight best practices for keeping your code maintainable and performant. After the talk, you will have a much better understanding of how Node.js compliments the the traditional IBM i technology stack.
