Open Source is exploding on the IBM i platform. This workshop provides us a unique opportunity get up close and personal with open source on the world's best platform! We will start out by talking about what open source means to the platform and take a look at setting up the initial open source ecosystem. From there we will take a look at the containerization capability provided by the chroot utility and how it can be used to build file-system containers so that different developers can have different software/package collections. Once our containers are setup we will then explore the various open source programming languages including python, node.js, and php and take a look at how to integrate those languages with Db2 and ILE. Finally we will take a look at how open source productivity solutions such as WordPress, Magento, and Drupal can be implemented on the platform. Time has never been better to take a dive into the Open Source end of the pool.
