This week was March Break here in Toronto for most schools. A week where kids (and their parents) take time off to put aside their studies and work, spend quality time together, and wreak havoc across the city’s children attractions.
Besides paying ridiculous money for food and parking, and standing in half hour long lineups for kiddy rides during Spring Fling (above) held at the Rogers Centre (formerly Skydome), I also stood in equally long lineups at various stores across the city. I guess the same parents decided to run some errands during the day around town as well. At this point I was contemplating renaming this week “March Broke“.
… don’t worry, there is a System i connection below :), keep reading…
Hello everyone. Welcome to the WDSC Development Team blog. I’m really excited about using this new medium to share our thoughts and experience with WDSC to help users become more aware of the tool, System i, and the world of software development for System i in general. But this is not a one-way world anymore. I’m equally anxious to hear back from the System i developers community on the various topics posted. My goal here is not only to broadcast my thoughts and experinces but to collaborate and keep in touch with the community.
We’ll soon have a writer’s page where you’ll be able to browse our bios, but I’ll give an idea of what my current interests are, and hence the likely subject of my posts: I’m currently on working on the IBM WebFacing Tool, and therefore, naturally I’m interested in application modernization, both through the modernization of the user interface you interact with, as well as the structure of the logic that drives the application and performs the necessary business services. Personally, I’m also fascinated with the Web 2.0 phenomenon and its impact to both business and society. So I’m sure many of my posts will dive deep (head first) into those topics. Hope there are no sharp rocks down there. :)
Looking forward to sharing them with you…
