It’s been a long, cold and particularly wet winter here in Scotland, but as spring has finally sprung, the IBM i conference season is about to descend on us once more across the Northern hemisphere.

In 1942, Isaac Asimov introduced the sci-fi literature world to the Three Laws of Robotics:
A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
A robot must obey the orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
Thinking about software application development, debugging, maintenance, deployment and overall application evolution, I propose that the same law structure be applied to software:
Time. Time is an essential component to the success of any project at hand within any business, particularly, the business of managing and optimizing your IBM i applications.
It was a pleasure and indeed an honor to have the opportunity to interview Dawn May on her recent trip to Australia.
If you’re familiar with Dawn’s work, you already know about her passion and her dedication and contribution to development of the IBM i over the years. She is one of the select few who have had a significant impact both on System Software Development and on the Business Architecture of the IBM i.
