We always listen to feedback for a wide variety of our content. You might be familiar with the feedback form we provide on the bottom of our technotes. One of the fields lets us know if the content helped you achieve your goal:
We would like to know the same for our YouTube videos on the IBMRationalSupport channel! We now include a reminder in our videos that you can use the Like or Dislike buttons:
Did the video help? Click Like! Did it fall short of helping you? The Dislike button is there, too. Of course, there is also the comment section for each video that you can use for detailed responses. Know that unlike technote feedback, YouTube comments are not anonymous.
Keep the other buttons in mind, too. You can create your own playlists and add our videos using the Add to button. You can also use the Share button to share the videos through embedding, email, or social networking channels. We would love for you to spread the word!

Here's an article which may have flown under your radar if you only watch developerWorks Rational. This one comes to you from the developerWorks IBM i Technical Library and covers some great technical details covering database modernization from DDS to SQL with Rational Open Access: RPG Edition:
Moving from a DDS to SQL database on DB2 for i can be accomplished without changing a single line of program code or recompiling a program. Converting a program to use advanced SQL techniques involved extensive program modifications or total rewrites, until now. With the addition of Rational Open Access: RPG Edition, advanced SQL coding techniques can be utilized by adding as little as 1 line of code to an existing RPG program. In this article I will describe how to use Rational Open Access: RPG Edition to take advantage of advanced data centric programming techniques only available via SQL programming.
