For years, the fixed-form nature of RPG has frustrated programmers, forcing them to fit their code into fixed columns. IBM i shops have struggled to find these specialized programmers—even to attract non-RPG programmers in a pinch—so IBM has made it possible to write an entire RPG program in free-format.

IBM’s lead developer for the RPG compiler, Barbara Morris, explains how the additional support for free-form coding in RPG removes frustrations, makes RPG more accessible to general developers, and enhances the value of the platform. Join us to learn business-wide benefits and technical tips such as:

• New features for writing more robust and maintainable code
• Nuances between fixed- and free-form that might raise eyebrows
• Working with the syntax for free-form H, F, D, and P specs

Free-form makes it easier for programmers to express the intention of their code, which leads to more maintainable code and more productive programmers. Register today and increase your job skills by learning all about RPG’s new free-form support.
