166: Node.js and IBM i: Integrating Open-Source Software with your Current Technology Stack

You've heard a lot about Node.js, and know how to download packages, write interesting applications, and even connect to Db2 for i. But you are still a little hazy on how to integrate Node.js with all of the RPG, C, COBOL, and CL programs you have running on your system. This talk will focus on interacting with ILE programs from Node.js, including sending data to programs as parameters, getting results back in Node.js, and leveraging the power of Node.js to use the results in a novel way. By the end of the talk, you should have a better sense of how Node.js can interact with traditional IBM i programs and where to find answers to questions you have about Node.js and IBM i.

Learning Objectives:
1. What options are available to integrating Node.js with IBM i programs, commands, and workflows
2. How to interact with Node.js and IBM i from the same system
3. How to remotely interact with IBM i from Node.js on another system
