How do System i programmers define "being useful"?
By accessing and modifying data in the database, that's how. In this presentation I will demonstrate some simple ways to use PHP to perform useful tasks, give basic information on the language itself, and provide resources for those who wish to learn more, from the perspective of a busy RPG programmer who doesn't have a lot of time to spend learning something new on the job.
