Meeting User Needs 

Jon has spent most of his 45 years in the IT industry working with midrange systems. From operations to programming to management, he has worked with a wide variety of systems.

Everything changed in the early 1980s when Jon first encountered  the
System/38 while converting from an NCR system. He fell in love with the S/38.

This love affair ultimately led him to join IBM’s Toronto laboratory, working on the S/3X and AS/400 compilers. He played a major role in the definition of the RPG IV language and in promoting its use. Jon left IBM in 1998 to focus on providing Application Development skills education for IBM i shops. 

He has spent the last 15 years working with his partner Susan Gantner to help their customers modernize their applications and development practices. They do this through custom training classes, magazine articles, conference education, web casts, and of course as authors of the "Who Knew You Could Do That With RPG" Redbook.

Jon and Susan are also members of System i Developer, a consortium of IBM i educators who host the RPG & DB2 Summit events twice annually. They have most recently contributed to a new IBM Redbook on Application Modernization.

Please join us at Spazio's for our December meeting.  To register for the event RSVP by noon on December 7th.  Free to members and $25 for extra attendees from member companies and $40 for non-members.
