IBM i and web apps can't do that....

Posted by Nick Hampson on Sep 12, 2013 2:28:00 AM

I am concerned when listening to the luminaries in the IBM i community talking about what can be done with web apps vs. hybrid vs. native. I really wish these guys would 'pony up' buy some books and learn the facts.

With status comes responsibility and luminaries are trusted by many, their word is gospel or pretty close. So when talking about topics where they have little knowledge they pass on half truths, miss what's possible or even worse bend the truth to the tune of what they wish to sell you, this upsets me greatly.

XML HTTP request 2 and web workers - tools built to make web applications yet run like Native applications.

3D - Business Apps - 3D - Business Apps. Doesn't seem to go does it?

This isn't for everyone, but stick with me for a minute it’s not all Iron Man special effects stuff.
