Reminiscing My Journey Into AS/400 World...

~ Posted on Wednesday, July 4, 2012 at 1:44 AM ~

I started my IT career in the world of AS/400 (now known as iSeries) by attending what I would think as a Premiere pro classes in 2000. One of a kind unique type of classes back then.

I remembered the first time I saw the advertisement posting on the AS/400 programming classes, I immediately enrolled myself in the one month course that teaches and equips fresh graduates with basic AS/400 programming skills.

I felt that it was an opportunity in a lifetime to enrol in this programming classes as back then, there are very high demand of people who are knowledgeable in AS/400 programming and there is only a handful of colleges and universities in my country that offers the subject.

After completing the course, I was then send off to work in IT projects at client's site and my programming skills improved from there onwards as I also get to learn more on the job.

Until today, I believe my decision to attend this training gives me an added advantage over the other graduates as there are no longer colleges or universities offering this programming subjects. I really felt blessed at being able to learn so much and have a strong foundation in AS/400.

Who knows, one day when I decided to go back into the working world, I might be able to be a trainer and conduct classes in AS/400 programming huh?
