Let's see if I'll be able to keep my own promise to blog each day after ZendCon. crosses fingers I won't guarantee that they will be filled to the brim with details, but I'll do my best.
I use jQuery in many of my projects, but after this session I feel a bit more confident if I need to work outside jQuery, and I understand a bit more about what is going on under the hood.
After lunch I attended a session about integrating PHP and RPG code together. Like Ed's talk, Susan's was a good overview of PHP, MySQL, and RPG. I wished that her talk went over MySQL a bit more, but she has another session for that. Overall it was good to see that I am doing some things right.
I got a few tips for how to do things, but most of what she covered I had gone through within the last six months or so myself. I managed to meet a few people who were doing pretty heavy work with the iSeries and PHP, and I look forward to speaking with them later in the conference.
The Q&A; ended up being mostly with the Zend folks (not Susan's fault at all, everyone just kind of turned on poor Mike Pavlak with their Zend Server problems). If this session was any indication, the IBM i track this year should be good.
And Mike, if you read this, I promise to submit a support ticket for Zend Monitor.
Looking Forward to Day 2
Day 2 (for me) is the first day of the conference itself. I've also got a ZCE 5.3 test scheduled for the afternoon, so I've spent part of tonight studying for it. Tomorrow afternoon, I'll either be at the hotel bar drinking my sorrows away at failing or celebrating. Plus I heard there are some good sessions and I'm sure that I'll meet some great people.
