From ITJungle.com today, there's a new article that talks to Zend about their effort to get PHP pushed to the System i platform via the Zend Core and the progress it's making.
The push to create a new generation of young PHP programmers and PHP-driven Web applications on the IBM System i is moving forward according to plan, according to Zend Technology, the company commercializing the open source scripting language and providing support and training services. "Things are going phenomenally well," Zend business development vice president Mike Pinette says, giving evidence of that early success. "We're firing on all cylinders."
They go on to talk about other offerings Zend is making available for the platform including their popular Zend Platform package. There's talk of how Zend's effort is spreading (across countries) and their additional focus on the "bread and butter" shops - "manufacturers, distributors, retail chains, banks, and financial institutions that have heavily invested in OS/400 and RPG over the years".
