Watch your inbox for an announcement about our next book to hit the market. Joe Pluta has written a book on EGL specifically for the IBM i titled Developing Web 2.0 Applications with EGL for IBM i. I'm really interested in knowing how you all will react to this book. IBM is heavily invested in EGL across all the Power Systems platforms.
"Just as in the 1960s COBOL offered a simpler, more productive way than Assembler Language for writing business applications, today the EGL language provides a simpler, more productive way to write cross-platform, network-enabled business solutions for distributed computing environments." (EGL Cafe)
Do you think you will be programming in EGL in the future? Are you interested enough to find out more? Will the free Community Edition make you more interested? These are all questions that we have to ask ourselves as we consider a title. I'd be interested in knowing what you think.
