 Liam Allan, IBM Champion and consultant with Seiden Group, helps IBM i development teams transform their applications and bridge the gap between traditional and modern development practices. He specializes in DevOps, RPG, ILE, Node.js, PHP, PASE and open source.  Founder of Works of Barry, he also supports the community by creating open source tools—such as the ILEditor and NetRPG—that make IBM i development more intuitive for the next generation. He also co-hosts the IBM Bi-Weekly technical podcast. 

Liam’s passion for bringing IBM i and the world of open source closer together has earned him two COMMON Innovation Awards. After joining the Club Seiden open source community in 2015, he quickly earned high standing among the IBM i development community. In early 2016, COMMON named him recipient of the Student Innovation Award, and he found himself on the speaking circuit teaching audiences his techniques for integrating open source with RPG. IBM further honored his work by naming him a “Fresh Face of IBM i” and, soon after, an IBM Champion. Most recently, COMMON presented him with the 2019 Innovation Award for his work on barryCI.  LinkedIn: www.linkedin.com/in/worksofbarry  Twitter: @notesofbarry
