Happy Halloween with IBM i 7.3 Technology Refresh 1

IBM announces a new cloud storage product inside IBM i 7.3 TR 1.

Written by Steve Pitcher

It’s October and that means two very important things:

One, I get to impose my yearly Sheriff of Nottingham-style 10 percent candy tax on my three kids after Halloween. And two, IBM has released its fall announcement for IBM i, in this case the news that IBM i 7.3 Technology Refresh 1 and 7.2 Technology Refresh 5 have been announced.

Book Review: Database Design and SQL for DB2

If you have time for just one book to begin your journey into SQL on the IBM i, this is that book.

Reviewed by Joe Pluta

Writing technical books is always a juggling act between depth and breadth. Unless you're writing a 2,000-page Microsoft tome, there's no way you can provide both complete coverage and enough detail to be a complete reference. This is particularly true of books written for the IBM i, which have to serve the dual purpose of educating on the basic topic as well as addressing the nuances specific to the midrange platform. The best you can hope to do is to address the critical areas with enough depth to make someone productive.

Happily, James Cooper's book Database Design and SQL for DB2 manages to do exactly that.
