A Few of the Services We Offer
Augment RPG Staff
We have top-tier RPG developers excited to help accomplish your business needs. If you have a project that’s been put on hold for time to free up or you need help writing modern and modular RPG ILE code – we are here to support you.
RDi Git + RPG
Do you use Rational Developer for i (RDi) and want to kickstart adopting Git for your RPG source code? We can help! Our approach is the least intrusive to your existing development processes.
Payment Terminal Programming
We’ve been doing card-not-present coding for many years with our CyberSource Toolkit for i product. We have added communicating with Verifone and Ingenico payment terminals to facilitate card-present scenarios. This is done directly from IBM i without additional Windows servers involved. We will custom code a solution for you!
We will put together examples showing how to call RPG from Node.js or Ruby. Don’t rewrite your RPG, revitalize it! Calling on RPG for existing business logic is our recommended approach for the quickest time to market.
First time with Ruby or Node.js? A new language can be overwhelming. We had to span the same divide coming from RPG. The good news is we will provide introductory presentations, hands-on labs, and one-on-one training to get you going quickly.
Develop mobile applications for intranet or internet use. We have developed pistol grip scanner applications (Android) to lessen both the cost of hardware and also streamline core business processes. These mobile applications communicate directly with the IBM i (iSeries, AS/400) for real-time data interaction.
Initial Node.js App
Getting an initial Node.js application off the ground can take weeks with all of the options out there. Using our expertise, you can have an authenticated Node.js web application running in less than a week. All using technology that is open source and doesn’t have license costs.
Depending on your preference we can install and configure your machine for Ruby or Node.js.
Sometimes Node.js or Ruby have “native language extensions”. This means you need to compile C/C++. We’ll get you setup with gcc, curl, wget, bash and other popular open source binaries.
Configure and install IFS Containers to keep your developers and applications from stepping on each other.
We aid in writing and tailoring deployment scripts for your application. Automation is key to quick turn around of features in production.
Need more Ruby or Node.js developers on your project? Or maybe you just need help when you get stuck? A pre-purchased block of hours can do wonders at keeping a project humming along.
Install browser-based cloud9 IDE for source editing. Installing ungit is another popular way to use Git without drowning in commands.
Not into browser-based tools? No problem, there are many editors to choose from and we can help get you up and running.
Source Change Management
Source code is best managed with Git. We will set you up on IBM i and connect you with GitHub.com or Bitbucket.org.
