By doing my job I’ve been running into many issues/inquires where my imagination has been challenged. Sometimes I’ve been able to find out the answers to those issues by myself, some others I’ve been lucky to be a recipient of RPGCOM.COM blog where I found what I was looking for. Definitely RPGCOM.COM is a source of value information for us, not only as RPG/SQL developers but also keep you up to date on regards to what is happening with iSeries platforms. We are not alone, we know that someone else is out there waiting for us to give you a hand when we are in need, and for that I’m very grateful.

July 23, 2015: Jon Paris, Partner at Partner400 and System i Developer, IBM Champion, speaker, and author.
Taken from the article By way of Introduction... System i Developer blog.

... one of the things I also want to do is to highlight things that I, and others, have written that I think deserve a wider audience. So who to highlight first? Well I’m going to go with a fellow ex-Brit Simon Hutchinson.

Simon publishes a regular blog on his RPGPGM.COM – From AS400 to IBM i site, and he covers some really worthwhile topics mostly in the RPG and SQL arenas. He always includes meaningful examples and his explanations are thorough and well thought out. Recommended reading.

I would just like to say how much I enjoy reading your blog. It is full of exciting news and stuff I didn't even know existed, and I started out on S/34's, S/36's and S/38's back in 1980. Thank you for providing your thoughtful insight.


November 15, 2013: Mohan Gunawardena, Senior Consultant

Thank you, for a very valuable resource base for the IBM i (AS/400) and the RPG developer community. Your effort is of tremendous help to both Veterans and Newcomers.


September 5, 2013: Doug Bridwell, Application Development Manager

I just wanted to drop you a note and tell you how much I appreciate your RPGPGM.COM blog. I have been getting notifications via LinkedIn for a while now. I initially thought the topics were pretty basic. I have been working on IBM i, AS/400, S/38 for close to 30 years now so I know a thing or two about the system and programming in RPG. But even with the most basic topics I find something useful that I didn't know before when following the discussions.

So thank you for doing this. I believe the information provided is extremely useful and relevant. I am constantly sharing the information with my developers.
