ODBC is a technology that allows for platform- and database management system-agnostic calls to a database, as long as your have the correct driver installed. The IBM i Open-Source Software team has made the strategic decision to support ODBC as our first choice for database connectivity for Db2 for i. This session will cover how to set up ODBC on your IBM i, Windows, Mac, and Linux systems, and then how to use ODBC to connect to your IBM i machines from anywhere.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn how to download and configure ODBC datasources_x000D_ 2. Learn how to connect with ODBC once datasource has been set up_x000D_ 3. Learn how ODBC allows development from non-IBM i systems and then move those some programs to IBM i with little to no changes
