The latest version and new editions of Db2 Web Query let you do even more than you thought you could!

From the President

Dear Members:

Happy New Year 2021! We hope that you enjoyed the holidays and made it through 2020 safely. We’re looking forward to being able to meet onsite face to face but until then we’ll make the best of it and hold our monthly meetings in virtual format. We have a lot to look forward to and a lot to reflect upon. We can all agree 2020 has been a complex year and a year we will not forget. As we reflect upon the past year and look forward to a new year we will find strength together to embrace all of the rapid changes taking place in technology.

We’re excited to have Mike Larsen presenting in January. Mike will be sharing how to Email/Text from RPG. Mike is an awesome and very knowledgeable presenter. You’ll be sure to enjoy the presentation and learn useful skills to apply within your environment. You’ll be able to join in remotely through gotomeeting. Details on how to join and the link are posted along with meeting information on this page.

In February our topic is “Python”. Watch for information to be posted soon on the upcoming meeting. Python has been around for sometime and has grown in use by leaps and bounds in recent years. We’re finding Python often is a programming language that we find behind some of the significant changes taking place in technology.

In March we’ll continue with a presentation on Security Stay tuned for details. We will post details on the SEMIUG site. Security is very important topic. The past year seems to have unveiled even more threats for attacks on our systems. Being aware of and staying on top of security is extremely important. It has begun much more complex as we have internal users and also have added external users. Without security precautions the external users can be those invited as well as those that have not been invited. If you haven’t already paid your dues please do so. You can find the renewal form on the bottom of the SEMIUG Membership page. Dues are the same low rate of $50.00 per individual or $100.00 per organization. A very small price to pay to support the group and continue to bring world class education to our local community. We have preliminary plans for MITEC and are holding out to before locking into an onsite event. We’re hoping now that vaccine is being administered it will be soon that we are able to safely and comfortably travel and meet face to face. We look forward to 2021 with promise and will continue to strive to provide opportunity for learning, current world class education, opportunity to connect with community colleagues, information sharing and continued support of the IBM i platform.

Happy New Year 2021.
