This Meetup starts with a 30 minute introduction to IBM Power Virtual Servers in IBM Cloud and then continues with the main topic - Merlin

What is MERLIN?

MERLIN is a browser-based application development and
modernization platform for IBM i users, and this product is the
first of its kind for IBM i. It provides a set of tools that run in Red
Hat OpenShift containers and provides a framework to guide
developers in the modernization of IBM i applications. It is based
on the interoperability between IBM i and the Red Hat OpenShift
container-based functions.
At the initial release of MERLIN, the platform introduced IBM i
Developer and IBM i CI/CD, two tools designed to provide a
modern software development and devops CI/CD (continuous
integration/continuous deployment) pipeline environments. Both
tools utilize Git and the IBM i CI/CD integrates with an internal
Jenkins automation server.
