You keep hearing about these web service "things" but are not really sure what they are, where they fit into your toolset, or why theyíre important. IBM continues to add native functionality, positioning the Power System as a key player in this technology. In this fast moving session we will discuss the ins and outs of web services and the many ways you can work with them on IBM i. Points of discussion include how web services work, where to find them, and a demonstration of the tooling you will find, TODAY, already available in your own shop.

Dinner Meeting Directions

The event will be held at Giordano's Restaurant & Pizza at 17 W. 280 W. 22nd Street in Oakbrook Terrace, IL

Giordano's in Oakbrook Terrace is located on the North side of 22nd Street (Cermak Road) west of IL-83 and east of Midwest Road. It's across the street from the Oakbrook Terrace Costco and just east of the Oakbrook Terrace Holiday Inn.

It is most definitely the same company, but not the same Giordano's Pizza Restaurant as the other one some miles east near Mannheim Road in Westchester.
