Python is a language that has been perceived as infrastructure or plumbing in the IT department, much like CL. While this is an excellent use for Python, it has emerged as a strategic language for application development, too. In this workshop, we’ll explore the implementation, syntax, and application use cases of Python on IBM i. From a fundamentals perspective, you will get hands-on experience using the command line, shell environment, script creation, storage, and execution. As we progress through the workshop, we will delve into Db2 data access and program calls using XML Service as well as a brief tour of frameworks. Then we’ll wrap things up with how open source applications built in Python can add value to your IT environment.

This session requires little to no previous experience in Python and is specifically tuned for IBM i programmers.
