Four Hundred Monitor, December 14
December 14, 2022 Jenny Thomas
This is it! The last Monitor of 2022. While we are grateful to have survived another year in the Jungle, the idea of a few weeks off is sounding pretty good about right now. We do have one more issue of The Four Hundred for you to look forward to coming up this Monday, but after that, we will be on recharge mode until 2023. Before we go, here’s one last look around our ecosystem, starting with an opportunity for you to influence the direction of our favorite IBM i. The whole team at IT Jungle wishes you a happy and healthy holiday season!
