One question I am frequently asked: is there a future for RPG? IBM's Steve Will, chief architect for the IBM i, is often asked the same question and he has written a blog post about the subject.
One of the most frequent questions I get when I discuss the future of IBM i is a very open-ended question about IBM's commitment to RPG. This is natural, I suppose, because when many people think of our platform, they think of RPG, which has historically been the most commonly used programming language on IBM i and its predecessors.
He declares that it does have a future, along with the other languages that are now supported on the IBM i.
