My Favourite Things about Rdi
Still using the PDM/SEU green screen editor for coding your RPG? In this session, Susan will cover her very favourite things about using RDi (aka Rational Developer for i) to develop RPG code. Since IBM has stopped updating SEU for new language features (such as support for free format declarations) RDi is now the only editor from IBM that fully supports today's IBM i languages. But that's far from the best reason to move from SEU to RDi.Come to this session to see her demonstrate her favourite productivity features in RDi that will make you wonder why you spent so many years using SEU! What will be your favourite? Perhaps the program outline, content assist, filtering or the fact that you'll never need to open a spooled file again to find compile-time errors.
