CL is an underappreciated language in the IBM i world. Many hang on to the ways and methods they code CL from when they were first learning how to use IBM i. Like all languages CL has evolved over many releases to become something more than it ever was, to a point where any modernization project ought to include refactoring your CL programs. Join me as I walk through examples of CL code from our past and how it can be refactored into a format that a modern developer would easily understand.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn how to use true structured programming in the CL language.
2. Learn how to integrate CL into Service Programs.
3. See examples of refactored CL code & learn how much easier it is to support & maintain."
